Hoff L A
AIDS typifies life crises as a whole as it touches major themes of the crisis experience: loss, grief, suicide danger, violence & the need for social support. It reveals starkly the relationship between situational, transitional, & sociocultural origins of crisis as depicted in this book’s Crisis Paradigm. Besides being a necessary element of comprehensive care, serving people with AIDS provides an extraordinary opportunity to address the socioeconomic & cultural roots of this crisis.
