Survival Models for People with AIDS in Groups.
Getzel, George S.
Social Work, v36 n1 p7-11 Jan 1991
Describes four modes of positive survival with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and analyzes them as they appear in support groups for people with AIDS. Sees beneficent, artistic-spiritual, heroic, and rational-instrumental survival modes as compromise solutions to fears of life and death described by Rank. Calls analysis nonpejorative means of validating group members' efforts to deal with disease. (Author/NB)
