<P><STRONG></STRONG></P>"This book is a 'must read' for those interested&nbsp;in the prevention&nbsp;of&nbsp;HIV transmission. It has enough breadth to provide a&nbsp;general overview of 'prevention with positives' and enough detail to satisfy and educate those already working in this area.&nbsp;Clinicians who want to develop or refine their approaches to counseling patients with HIV will find this book valuable."

<P>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. <BR><STRONG>Positive Prevention</STRONG> 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". <BR>This volume will serve as an invaluable sourcebook for all professionals working in the field of HIV / AIDS prevention. </P>
