About this book


This book examines the impact of pediatric HIV on children, adolescents, and their families. Beginning with an overview of pediatric HIV epidemiology, it traces the medical, psychological, and social dimensions of HIV through the trajectory of childhood and youth. It examines the latest research on a wide range of topics, including treatment adherence, cultural, legal, and ethical issues, and HIV stigma and its reduction. Chapters offer expert recommendations for clinicians working with children with HIV as well as researchers studying pediatric HIV. In addition, the book also discusses daily concerns associated with pediatric HIV, such as disease management, coping, access to services, risk prevention, and health promotion. 

Topics featured in this book include: 
  • The impact of pediatric HIV on families. 
  • Psychosocial considerations for children and adolescents with HIV.
  • HIV prevention and intervention in the school setting.
  • HIV disclosure in pediatric populations.
  • How to design effective evidence-based HIV risk-reduction programs for adolescents.
A Clinical Guide to Pediatric HIV is a must-have resource for researchers, clinicians, and graduate students in child and school psychology, social work, and public health as well as pediatric medicine, nursing, epidemiology, anthropology, and other related disciplines.

About the editors

Tiffany Chenneville, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor and Graduate Program Director in the Psychology Department at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. She has a Joint Appointment with the USF Department of Pediatrics where she has been involved for many years as a clinician and as a researcher in the pediatric/adolescent HIV program. Historically, Dr. Chenneville’s research focused on issues of law, policy, and ethics with a particular emphasis on the decisional capacity of children with HIV to participate in treatment and research. She continues with this line of inquiry but, more recently, also has begun community-based participatory research in the area of HIV-related stigma among youth. Because HIV is a global disease, Dr. Chenneville is interested in cross-cultural research. She has worked in India and currently is working Kenya.   In addition to her research, Dr. Chenneville is collaborating with a filmmaker on a documentary about pediatric HIV.
