Children, Families, and HIV/AIDS: Psychosocial and Therapeutic Issues
by Nancy Boyd-Franklin Ph.D.

Buy from Amazon.com

The volume presents a family-focused, culturally sensitive, and systems-coordinated approach for the provision of effective service delivery and care to HIV/AIDS children and their families. Called the Multisystems HIV/AIDS Model, it offers a conceptual framework that orients the service provider to the medical, cultural, psychosocial, and mental health needs of HIV-infected infants, children, and adolescents; mothers and other relatives who are also infected with HIV/AIDS; and uninfected but nonetheless affected family members and other caretakers.

Handbook of Pediatric HIV Care
by Steven L. Zeichner

Buy from Amazon.com

This portable and practical handbook provides a concise guide to the essentials of pediatric HIV care in a form suitable for doctors in the busy hospital setting. During the past few years, many agents for the treatment and prophylaxis of HIV infection and the opportunistic infections that accompany HIV infection have been developed, and many new ways of monitoring HIV infection in children have been produced. These new therapies and approaches to management are complicated, but the long-term health of HIV-infected children depends on their correct application. This handbook presents the core information and guidelines necessary for effective management of infected children.

Hooked: New Science on How Casual Sex is Affecting Our Children
by Joe S. McIlhaney Jr

Buy from Amazon.com

Society tells us that sex is an act of self-expression, a personal choice for physical pleasure that can be summed up in the ubiquitous phrase: “hooking up.” Millions of American teenagers and young adults are finding that the psychological baggage of such behavior is having a real and lasting impact on their lives. They are discovering that “hooking up” is the easy part, but “unhooking” from the bonds of a sexual relationship can have serious consequences.

A practical look into new scientific research showing how sexual activity causes the release of brain chemicals which then result in emotional bonding and a powerful desire to repeat the activity. This book will help parents and singles understand that “safe sex” isn't safe at all; that even if they are protected against STD's and pregnancy, they are still hurting themselves and their partner.

The Naked Truth: About Sex, Love and Relationships
by Lakita Garth

Buy from Amazon.com

In a world where it seems like “everybody’s doing it” how do you help students say no to premarital sex? Lakita Garth tells you how! As an internationally known abstinence advocate and sought-after speaker, she talks to more than 500,000 students a year about abstinence and sexuality. Here, she frankly, humorously and passionately shares her principles with teens for staying pure until marriage, while equipping them with the life skills necessary to be responsible and successful. Through her four-phase Decision Making Model, young people will understand the principles of self-control, self-discipline, delayed gratification and achieving their dreams. They’ll be ready to establish healthy dating relationships and clearly defined boundaries for physical intimacy, while understanding and valuing marriage. The eight-session companion DVD, a leader’s guide and student guides will make this resource perfect for small-group use.
