Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: "Finally, a book devoted to the needs of children and adolescents facing HIV/AIDS. The challenges for these families, particularly those of the inner city and minorities, have been shamefully neglected. Clearly written and comprehensive, this book provides an empowering systems framework. Boyd-Franklin, Steiner, Boland, and other contributing authors skillfully guide professionals to meet the complex medical, cultural, and psychosocial needs of these families. This outstanding book is a must for all health and mental health professionals working with HIV/AIDS." --John S. Rolland, MD, Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry & Co-Director, Center for Family Health, University of Chicago, Author of Families, Illness, and Disability; An Integrative Treatment Model "The authors have detailed a comprehensive blueprint for caring for children and families with AIDS. In addition to placing the disease and its manifestations in a broad epidemiological and psychosocial context, they and their collaborators have constructed a well crafted approach to developing a multidisciplinary approach to the care of infants, children, adolescents, women, and families. From the supportive care of individuals to the development of support groups for children or care providers, the authors offer guidance based on models that have worked. Family-centered care is important for optimal health care. Although it is a necessity for children with AIDS, the principles of family-centered care are applicable to many other diseases and the principles offered in Children, Families and HIV/AIDS: Psychosocial and Psychotherapeutic Issues are relevant to all who care for children with serious disease." --Philip A. Pizzo, MD, Chief of Pediatrics, Head, Infectious Disease Section, National Cancer Institute, Professor of Pediatrics, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
