Abstract
 
Description
First published in 1993, this book provides a concise, critical account of the mental health aspects of HIV infection as it affected patients, their partners and families, health professionals and other carers in the early 1990s. The author, whose research, teaching and practice were conducted in an academic department of psychiatry, offers a considered and objective overview of the information on psychological and behavioural aspects of AIDS and HIV, challenging a number of ill-founded attitudes and opinions. Prefaced by clear explanations of the biological and neurological effects of infection, the particular and often very complex problems encountered by patients and health workers are explored in this volume. The author provides an informed assessment of reports and studies from around the world, including, where available, data from developing countries. He also contributes case histories, insights and practical advice for a wide readership in the mental health field and beyond. - from Amzon
