Make sure every child gets a chance to be heard HIV, Substance Abuse and Communication Disorders in Children examines the language problems of young children from special populations. Essential as a textbook for graduate and upper-level undergraduate studies and as a reference resource, this unique book presents up-to-date research and compelling case studies that illustrate how prenatal exposure to drugs, alcohol, and HIV can affect a child in utero and continue to handicap its development after birth. Each chapter includes discussion threads and review questions to promote critical thinking and clinical problem-solving skills in the classroom. HIV, Substance Abuse and Communication Disorders in Children looks at the negative impact a mother’s lifestyle practices can have on her developing child with a nod toward the significant prevalence of HIV and substance abuse in today’s society. Some estimates place the number of infants born after prenatal exposure to illicit drugs as three-quarters of a million—every year. When alcohol is added, the figure rises to more than 1 million. This powerful book focuses specifically on the serious consequences of alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, and crack cocaine abuse, including poor language development and speech delays, limited vocabulary, the inability to make their needs known, poor articulation, the inability to follow commands, limited expressive language skills, and the inability to understand the real meaning of words and generalize them. And of the nearly 5,000 children in the United States living with AIDS, almost all will struggle with speech production and communication disorders as the disease affects their brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system. HIV, Substance Abuse and Communication Disorders in Children examines: the effect of drugs on the brain pregnancy and drug use trends common drugs of abuse Kosakoff’s syndrome fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) among Native Americans and African Americans neurologic sequellae speech and language intervention rehabilitation considerations treatment and family counseling and much more HIV, Substance Abuse and Communication Disorders in Children is essential for graduate and undergraduate students working with language disorders in special populations.

AIDS, Health, and Mental Health is the first volume to fully integrate the biological, psychological, and social aspects of AIDS management and prevention under a coherent model - a model that provides a truly effective framework for resolving the extraordinarily complex problems brought about by the emergence of HIV disease. The book's explicit systems analysis of HIV infection lends itself to a highly practical application by psychotherapists and other health care providers as well as public health policymakers. No stone is left unturned as it provides readers with an important functional overview of all components of the illness, and then goes on to develop, through detailed case studies, the use of the Rochester Model of family systems therapy with both traditional and nontraditional family systems. The authors depict specific methods of engaging the patient's family, social, and community systems, and how the use of these systems can engender healing. Throughout, psychotherapeutic techniques are integrated with medical and neuropsychiatric treatment issues. Interweaving biological, socioeconomic, political, ethnic, and spiritual concerns, the volume stresses preventive training, risk reduction, and infection control, taking into account the strengths and limitations of a full range of public health measures. Health care professionals are provided with tools for self-education and self-protection as well as for patient education and protection. Of particular value to readers will be the authors' efforts to normalize the problems of HIV and a chapter on health care worker "burnout" and issues of countertransference - issues that will be an increasing dilemma for health care professionals as the epidemic spreads and applies greater stress to an already overtaxed and underfunded health care delivery system. Health care providers and mental health professionals will be richly rewarded with practical therapeutic tools, an in-depth understanding of the difficult medical management and public health decisions that must be made, as well as an ethical model for negotiating complex value decisions. They will also acquire an increased compassion for seemingly incomprehensible behaviors that, among certain populations, heighten the risk of infection. Again and again, AIDS, Health, and Mental Health demonstrates the proven value of applying an integrative systems approach to every aspect of managing - and hopefully overcoming - AIDS. It is a volume that no one involved in the care of AIDS patients - or any reader who wants a truly objective and in-depth understanding of the AIDS epidemic - should be without.
