Dealing with Clients Affected by AIDS: A Videotape and Discussion Model for Counselor Education.
Yager, Geoffrey G.; And Others
This paper describes a method of presenting both information and counseling skills necessary to deal effectively with those individuals who have been affected by acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The focus of the videotape and discussion approach that is described is on those individuals who are not infected by AIDS themselves. The videotapes described were developed to provide examples of appropriate and inappropriate counseling responses to such clients as someone concerned about interactions with friends who have been diagnosed with AIDS, an individual worried about catching AIDS from someone who has tested positive on the human immunodeficiency virus, or a rather prejudiced person who is planning to move his family from a neighborhood where someone has AIDS. The types of appropriate and inappropriate counseling responses to such situations are described as is some of the basic information that would be necessary for the counselor to be most helpful with such clients.
