AIDS and the New Orphans
Barbara O. Dane, Carol Levine
By the year 2000, as many as 125,000 children under the age of 18 in the U.S. will have been orphaned by AIDS. Social services in major cities such as New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and Washington will be further overwhelmed by these new clients and their unique problems. In this book, experts on bereavement, AIDS, and children draw together and analyze research and practice models that may be vital to individual and public policy solutions. An invaluable examination of a problem of growing concern, this book will interest social, medical, and mental health professionals, policy analysts, and general readers.
