The response to children with AIDS is often misguided and irrational. Consequently, infected infants and children suffer not only the effects of the disease but ostracism, fear and stretched medical resources as well. Responding to the need for information on pediatric and adolescent AIDS, this volume provides a concise, integrated and up-to-date review of social science research, clinical work and theory. After exploring the medical and epidemiological aspects of the disease, the authors discuss AIDS knowledge and attitudes, sexual behaviour and intravenous drug use among adolescents. Treatment and prevention approaches are also examined, as are complex ethical and legal issues surrounding clinical and research aspects of (view table of contents)

The effect of the law on human behavior is contemporary society—nothing less is the concern of this important book. It is curious that scholars in psychology and law have largely neglected this topic because studies of the effects of law on behavior may have much to teach about the role of social regulation in human motivation more generally. Similarly, such studies may offer jurisprudential scholars new ways of thinking about the role of law in human experience. Here seven leading experts on law and the social sciences discuss the contributions their research c an make to the legal system. Concerned with the relationship between the law and both individual and group behavior, they examine the law as an instrument of social stasis and social change and as an element of personal motivation. The result is a major step toward the development of a psychology of jurisprudence. The scope of this book is in the best tradition of the Nebraska Symposium on Motivation and a fitting celebration of the tenth anniversary of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Law/Psychology Program, the first integrated graduate training program in psycho-legal studies. Drawing from law, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and philosophy, the contributors take a truly interdisciplinary approach to understanding the instrumentality of law.
