about

HIV-AIDS and Social Work Practice in the Caribbean demonstrates how social workers, working alongside heath care professionals can contribute to the multi-disciplinary intervention in the fight against HIV-AIDS in the Caribbean using the lived experiences of person affected by HIV-AIDS. Using Trinidad and Tobago as the model for the Caribbean, this volume provides relevant, up-to-date information on theory and practice innovation in addressing the psychological needs of persons affected by HIV-AIDS; and how social work can be utilised as a tool of empowerment for dealing with HIV-AIDS. The result of three years research by scholars of social work, psychology and economics, HIV-AIDS and Social Work Practice in the Caribbean breaks the silence in addressing the psychological implications of HIV-AIDS at the individual, family, community and societal levels and presents a framework and model for promoting social change.

Jacqueline A. sPadmore has been in social work practice for over 35 years and in direct practice in health care in Trinidad, New York and the UK. Priya E.
