Özet:
"This book is a 'must read' for those interested in the prevention of HIV transmission. It has enough breadth to provide a general overview of 'prevention with positives' and enough detail to satisfy and educate those already working in this area. Clinicians who want to develop or refine their approaches to counseling patients with HIV will find this book valuable." (Gary Marks, PhD., New England Journal of Medicine, August 4, 2005) The CDC has made a revision in their philosophy underlying recommended prevention techniques to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS. The new approach focuses on "positive prevention", that is, prevention among people living with HIV/AIDS. This important distinction has resulted in the need to reexamine the behaviors around HIV transmission and the approaches to prevention when working within this diverse population. Positive Prevention is a timely volume containing the latest contributions from the top scholars in the field on preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS. Issues covered include unprotected sex with HIV-positive gay and bisexual men; issues around whether disclosure leads to safer sex; mental health and HIV with young adults; the impact of HIV diagnosis on sexual risk behaviors; interventions in community settings; and more. There is also a important chapter on international perspectives on "positive prevention". This volume will serve as an invaluable sourcebook for all professionals working in the field of HIV / AIDS prevention.

An estimated one million persons with HIV/AIDS live in the US. With new antiretroviral drugs, this population can expect longer survival periods. Recently the CDC revised its prevention approach to focus on "positive prevention" that seeks to improve the health of HIV-seropositive individuals and prevent new cases of HIV infection. Kalichman, a University of Connecticut psychologist and researcher (Preventing AIDS, 1998), has edited a timely collection of contributions from international scholars in the field of HIV/AIDS prevention. The researchers reexamine the multifaceted behaviors surrounding HIV transmission and discuss new prevention approaches for people living with HIV. Topics include the impact of HIV diagnosis on risk behaviors; the rise of unprotected sex with HIV-positive individuals; behavioral interventions for HIV-positive people and drug users; and interventions in community and clinical settings. The chapter on young people living with HIV is a poignant reminder of the disturbing UN statistic that 6,000 people in the age 15 to 24 group become infected with HIV every day. A chapter on international perspectives on positive prevention adds a global reach to the book. The straightforward prose helps condense the translation of complicated technical research data into understandable information. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended.
