Book Description :

Mental health and HIV/AIDS are closely interlinked. Mentaldisorders, including substance-use disorders, are associated withincreased risk of HIV infection and affect adherence to andefficacy of antiretroviral treatments. Conversely, HIVinfection can increase risk for neuropsychiatric complicationsincluding stress, mood, and neurocognitive disorders. This book provides clinicians with a comprehensive evidenced-basedand practical approach to the management of patients with HIVinfection and co-morbid mental disorders. It provides up-to-dateand clear overviews of current clinical issues, as well as therelevant basic science. Information and data from studies ofdifferent HIV groups (eg men who have sex with men) make the textrelevant to a broad spectrum of clinicians, including those workingwith low socioeconomic status groups in high income countries andthose working in the developing world. The book uses the popular format of the World PsychiatricAssociation’s Evidence and Experience series. Reviewchapters summarize the evidence on the epidemiology, pathogenesisand clinical aspects of mental disorders in HIV,and interventions(both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology including drug-druginteractions). These are complemented by commentariesaddressing particular facets of each topic and providing insightgained from clinical experience. Psychiatrists, psychologists and all mental health staff workingwith HIV-infected patients will find this book of greatbenefit.

Book Description :

Thanks to advances in Anti-Retrovial Drugs (ARTs), HIV is treatable and those who have the disease are often able to lead a normal life. However, as a chronic (and incurable) infectious disease, HIV positive patients are susceptible to neuropsychiatric complications. These complications reduce the quality of life for the individual and exponentially increases the cost of medical care and medications to treat both conditions. Neuropsychiatric Complications of HIV examines these neuropsychiatric complications prevalent in those who are HIV positive, providing clinical correlation, translational significance, and details guides to neurocognitive assessment, brain imaging, and related neuropharmacology. Written for clinicians, researchers, and students working with HIV and AIDS, the book begins with the biology of HIV, a complete look at available ARTs and antibodies, as well as diagnostics tools for HIV. It continues on to the epidemiology of NeuroAIDs and the manifestations of it-cognitive deficits, dementia, depression, agitation, psychosis, and cognitive slowing. Includes at-a-glance flow charts for clinical strategy Presents Review Questions to enhance the understanding of content Calls out Translational Significance in each chapter Examines ethical issues and possible solutions Provides extensive list of online resources for related subject material

Book Description :

It is well established that HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), the virus responsible for AIDS, directly attacks the central nervous system, altering cognition, behavior, and affect, and can result in a full dementia syndrome. HIV-associated neurocognitive complications, along with a myriad of other health threats, resulted in significant disability and unemployment for those infected. However, the advent of more effective antiretroviral medications used in combinations, along with homologous improvements in morbidity and mortality, have allowed for people living with HIV/AIDS to return to work, albeit not without challenges. Even mild cognitive impairment has been shown to affect employability and level of occupational functioning. The focus of this dissertation was to develop an understanding of the impact of HIV-associated neurocognitive challenges, the most common neuropsychiatric expression of HIV, on occupational persistence. This study analyzed existing data from a parent study conducted in New York City. The sample consisted of 116 community dwelling HIV positive men and women who were actively seeking employment after being unemployed subsequent to learning of their HIV status. The research design was a longitudinal prospective cohort study testing a multilevel growth model with a two- nested-level structure. The growth model examined individual differences in occupational persistence over a two year time period, testing multiple potential neuropsychological predictors and covariates. Changes in individual growth profiles were investigated, and possible explanations for observed differences were tested. The analysis found that memory is the most potent neuropsychological predictor of occupational success, both in terms of returning to work in the first six months of the study (event), as well as persisting on the job over time (two years). The second most influential neuropsychological predictor was executive functioning, which significantly influenced occupational persistence over time and an accelerated growth trajectory. These central findings along with other significant control interactions are discussed. The study limitations are discussed, along with opportunities for future research. The relevance of these findings is explored, specifically addressing the implications for social work practice and social work education.

Book Description :

In this absorbing book, TJ Wicker helps ground our understanding of the extraordinary 37 year history of the neurological and psychiatric comorbidities that couple with HIV, and antiretroviral therapy (ART), especially for "long-term" survivors. The content is based over three decades of research taken from medical journals, articles and previous medical books that cover this global pandemic. Quitting school at fifteen, TJ never imagined going back to school at 48 and obtaining on BSc in Public Service Administration & Policy from Kaplan University and graduated Cum Laude, then decided to take two years off and again returned to complete his MSc in Healthcare Administration from Purdue University. He is also a current member of both The International Golden Key Honour Society, and The National Society of Collegiate Scholars. TJ identifies the gaps, weaknesses, controversies, and/or problems in the theories, the anatomy, etiology, physiology, and pathophysiology of the disease. "The pandemic of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease is currently the most important public health event in recent history, with epic proportions that has political, social, economic, and cultural implications far beyond its medical significance."

Book Description :

This textbook is comprised of sections and chapters that provide insight into the interface between the psychiatric, medical, and social dimensions of HIV and AIDS. The editors use a biopsychosocial approach to provide the reader with a comprehensive understanding of the psychiatric andpsychodynamic complexities involved with the prevention of transmission of HIV infection and with the care of persons with HIV and AIDS. The data presented are both from clinical experience and from evidence-based medicine. There is probably no other illness in which the connections between mind andbody are so inextricably woven.In the first section, we explore the history of AIDS psychiatry, one that is pervaded with secrecy, stigma, discrimination, fear, and death. We provide an overview of the AIDS pandemic and the tragic results of the burgeoning of new cases despite the enormous available knowledge base for theprevention of HIV transmission. We document the intimate connection of brain and HIV and the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in persons with AIDS and other manifestations of HIV infection. There is no other illness in which the importance of a thorough assessment provides the information forprevention, adherence, and excellence in care. Because of HIV brain involvement, each evaluation needs to include a complete cognitive assessment as well as a full assessment for mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and psychotic disorders. Some cogent examples include cytomegalovirus retinitispresenting as visual hallucinations, cryptococcal meningitis presenting as mania, depression presenting as cognitive impairment, and cognitive impairment presenting as nonadherence to complex antiretroviral treatment.In the third decade of the AIDS pandemic, underserved populations may not have access to medical or psychiatric care. Mental illness, including drug and alcohol addictions, contribute to HIV transmission and can also serve as obstacles to care. Poverty, politics, domestic violence, and lack ofaccess to education are additional barriers to both HIV prevention and access to care in the Western Hemisphere and throughout the world. In areas where medical care and HIV care are available, persons with HIV and AIDS can have the same life expectancies as the general population and require thesame medical care as persons without HIV.This textbook provides a basic understanding of the comorbid medical and psychiatric conditions that cause distress, morbidity, and mortality in persons with HIV and AIDS while at the same time examining the public health and public policy aspects of the epidemic with a biopsychosocialapproach.

Book Description :

The quest to discover the etiology of schizophrenia has fascinated and frustrated researchers for more than a century. In recent years, there has been an accumulation of experimental and epidemiological evidence supporting the role of viral infections in schizophrenia pathogenesis. This growing body of evidence has amassed to the point where the mainstream scientific community can no longer ignore it. Drawing on his research experience in biological psychiatry and neurovirology, Dr. Pearce provides the first book dedicated entirely to a critical appraisal of the viral hypothesis of schizophrenia.This book is an enlightening and valuable resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, neurobiologists, and their students. By integrating the latest findings in virology and immunology with current concepts in the pathophysiology of the non-affective psychotic disorders, this well illustrated volume disentangles the various sub-theories of the viral hypothesis, and lays the groundwork for more focused explorations of the mechanisms by which viruses may cause serious mental illness.

Book Description :

As we enter the last decade of the twentieth century, the AIDS epidemic looms ever larger and threatening. The specter of upwards of a million deaths in the United States and perhaps many millions worldwide from a sexually transmitted virus shakes our belief in modem medical science, while challenging the foundations of democratic society. Almost ten years into the epidemic, and with an enormous body of basic science research on the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), we still do not know why AIDS emerged when it did or how to stop its spread. A very humbling experience for scientists, clinicians, public health experts, politicians, and the general public. Yet there are signs that a well coordinated multidisciplinary research program can conquer the epidemic and, perhaps, provide the basis for preventing future epidemics. The HIV family of viruses is now better understood, both in terms of structure and function, than any other virus. Genetically engineered peptides and nucleic acids are being tested as specific treatments or vaccines against HIV infection/disease. Most prom ising are the strides which have been made in understanding those aspects of human behavior which have contributed to the spread of HIV infection and which must be substantially modified if AIDS is to be controlled and eventually eradicated. The basis of that understanding has roots in a diverse set of disciplines which have converged in the work presented in this book.
