A group of adolescents were presented with the hypothetical situation of a friend with AIDS. Through school based research projects it was found that these adolescents tended to have a variety of coping strategies. They tried many until they found one suitable for them. Girls were found to be more worried about the suicide aspect while boys’ concern was directed more towards AIDS itself.
