Book description

This new edition of HIV and Psychiatry is fully revised and brings together a strong, international team of experts to create the most up-to-date handbook for mental health professionals dealing with HIV-infected and HIV-affected people. HIV care has become more complex, involving increasingly successful treatments with combinations of antiretrovirals from different classes. Patients now live longer, making the need for effective psychiatric care greater than ever to ensure good adherence to drug treatments and the best possible quality of life. Using case studies throughout, this training manual addresses all of the issues involved in caring for HIV and AIDS patients in order to help clinicians provide the best, state-of-the-art care for these individuals.

'This will not only be a reference book for the psychiatrist who is already involved in treating persons with HIV, but will also be invaluable for the person who is considering becoming involved for the first time in adding psychiatric experience and expertise to this growing worldwide disease.'
