No Longer Immune: A Counselor's Guide to AIDS.
Kain, Craig D.
This book was written to educate and inform those in the helping professions on how to deal with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). It explores how to improve the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive individuals, emphasizing recognition and acceptance of the person behind the illness and conveyance of that acceptance to the individual. This counselor's guide is divided into four sections. The first section provides a foundation for the rest of the book. The second section is devoted to issues arising from working with specific populations. Section 3 examines special issues (psychoneurological issues, working with families, hospice, and spiritual issues) for people with AIDS and section 4 examines special issues for counselors, issues that directly affect the caregiver. The book concludes with a list of resource organizations (including phone numbers and addresses) of: (1) community-based AIDS service organizations; (2) U.S. Governmental agencies; and (3) national private sector agencies. This list was compiled using "AIDS Lifeline," the National AIDS Network Directory of AIDS Education and Service Organizations. (NB)
