Cultural Dissonance and AIDS in the Puerto Rican Community.
Bok, Marcia; Morales, Julio
Journal of Multicultural Social Work, v2 n3 p13-26 1992
Interviewed health care professionals in 1989 and Puerto Rican church-goers and proprietors in 1990 to study the helping process for persons with AIDS and attitudes related to helping. Found that a dissonance was created when cultural characteristics of nurturance, support, and caring clash with feelings of fear, stigma, and anger and cause conflicts in the helping process. (KS)
