Noted family scientists, AIDS specialists, and senior staff members of many related professional organizations have combined their expertise in this vital new book to address the issues surrounding the psychosocial aspects of the AIDS crisis and to make recommendations for effective service delivery, education, and public policy that would give AIDS sufferers the care and support they need.

For every individual infected with HIV there are numerous family members--partners and spouses, parents and children, siblings and grandparents, friends and caregivers--whose lives are also profoundly affected and who also need care and support. Written specifically for family professionals and policymakers, AIDS and Families will enhance your understanding of the problems that AIDS and related HIV infections pose for individuals and their loved ones and will help you establish policies and therapeutic strategies that will assist families in dealing constructively with the crisis. This groundbreaking new volume is a report from the AIDS Task Force of the Groves Conference on Marriage and the Family.
