It provides a realistic view of what the daily work with this population is like. Specific, in-depth case examples and material give readers a solid understanding of how to work more effectively with chemically dependent clients infected with HIV. By concentrating on practical instead of theoretical aspects of treatment, this groundbreaking book helps practitioners better understand problems in treatment and shows different ways treatment can be given. Authors discuss and describe methods they use such as group work, drug and AIDS education, treatment teams, and the harm reduction model. Chapters address work with specific patient populations with the dual diagnosis of HIV and chemical dependency and describe treatment in a variety of modalities, such as outpatient, residential, or hospital setting. This timely book also includes helpful background material which introduces the complexities of work with this population through the story of one man’s struggle with AIDS and alcohol and drug addiction. Counseling Chemically Dependent People with HIV Illness also describes medical symptoms and problems of HIV-positive persons which gives non-medical counselors and therapists a preliminary understanding of what their patients may be undergoing physiologically. Other chapters focus on such topics as work with adolescents, short term group work in hospitals, HIV-infected persons on methadone maintenance, effective AIDS prevention with active drug users, and countertransference in professionals working with chemically dependent HIV clients. One of few books to address specifics of counseling and therapy with this difficult population, Counseling Chemically Dependent People with HIV Illness is an extremely valuable and helpful guide for substance abuse counselors, certified alcoholism counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers working in the chemical dependency field.

Description : This book is a basic resource of knowledge about alcoholism and drug addiction. The authors cover the scientific and clinical aspects of chemical dependency in a balanced way with case vignettes to illustrate clinical issues. The book is suitable for a number of student needs. Students preparing for the Certified Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC) examination will find topics discussed that are drawn from the certification examination requirements. The text can stand as a main source for college-level courses in addictions or chemical dependancy in the mental health health programs, and can be used as a college or stand-alone introduction to chemical dependancy and counseling. Psychologists, social workers, clergy, and other professional counselors who wish to supplement their knowledge about chemical dependancy will find this text serves as a valuable reference. After an introduction to the general problems of substance abuse counseling, the authors delineate the different types of drugs and their effects, organize the relevant information used in the assessment and diagnosis of addictions, integrate knowledge of human development with causes of dependancy and addiction, and explore the impact of addiction on health and the family. They then focus on the principles of chemical abuse counseling, including treatment planning, the different schools of counseling, how to understand and manage relapse, and special populations. They conclude with ethical considerations involved in treating chemical abusers. The authors believe that chemical dependency counseling is the only profession that treats substance abuse as a primary disorder and disease with its own causes, course, progression and complication. Chemical dependency counseling must deal with and absorb a complex and intriguing web of fact and theory drawn from sciences, medicine, and other fields. But the practical side of chemical dependency counseling remains an art and a science. This book offers a whole set of specific techniques
