HIV and Relationships
Michael Mancilla, MSW, LICSW, is an openly HIV-positive psychotherapist and consultant whose work centers around individuals, couples, and families who are affected by the AIDS epidemic.
Relationships are hard work, as any trip to the self-help section of local bookstore will attest. Throwing HIV into the mix invariably make relationships even harder -- disclosing HIV status, negotiating safer sex, committing to another against a landscape of uncertainty. All of this can be overwhelming and unnervingly intrusive -- but this doesn't have to be the case.
As a psychotherapist who tackles the subject on a daily basis and who is HIV positive, shares his insights into the special problems facing couples when one or both are HIV-positive. The information also holds appeal for HIV-negative people who have reservations about dating during an epidemic.
