Abstract

Despite the growing numbers of HIV-infeeted sehool-aged ehildren, we know very little about the mental health status of this group. This longitudinal study exarnined the frequeney of psyehological distress symptoms in HIV-infected ehildren between the ages of 6 and 11 years at three time points over aperiod of two and one-half years. Children were assessed using the Dominic, a pictorial instrument that assesses for 7 psyehological distress symptoms of childhood. In addition, farnily and demographie variables were colleeted at Time 1. Children were found to be relatively well-adjusted, with low to moderate incidence of psyehological distress. While there were no significant ehanges in frequeney of psyehological distress symptoms from Time 1 to Time 3, the prevalence of overanxious and depressive symptomatology increased over time. Implications for clinical practice and future research will be discussed.
