Career Issues and Concerns for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS
Dahlbeck, David T.; Lease, Suzanne H.
Career Development Quarterly, v58 n4 p359-368 Jun 2010
As the perception of HIV/AIDS continues to shift from a terminal illness to a manageable disease, persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHAs) are able to re-enter the workforce or remain in their current jobs for a longer period of time. Although this change is positive, it also raises many career concerns for PLWHAs. Using an ecological approach and the theory of work adjustment (Lofquist & Dawis, 1969, 1991), the authors provide suggestions for working with PLWHAs on career-related issues. A case vignette is presented to demonstrate how this approach may be applied.
