Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Four dimensions of psychological adaptation of 101 parents of HIV‐infected children were examined. Heightened anxiety, depression, and anticipatory grief were associated with child's age at diagnosis, parent's HIV status, and parent's relationship to the child. Parents at higher risk for psychological distress were identified, and an optimum time point for intervention is suggested. 1994 American Orthopsychiatric Association
