A Lifetime of Living With AIDS

(p.190) Chapter 6 Resilience
The AIDS Generation

Perry N. Halkitis

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the life perspectives of long-term HIV/AIDS survivors in our battle against the HIV/AIDS pandemic over the last 30 years. It examines how certain behaviors and coping strategies may be demonstrative of resilience among those living and surviving with HIV/AIDS. Drawing upon the data gathered here—specifically, the reactions and strategies described in the previous chapters—this chapter will synthesize these ideas and examine how these strategies for survival can be understood in relation to paradigm of health resilience. In addition, the strategies explored will be considered in relation to how they potentially expand our understanding of health resilience. This synthesis then is considered in relation to working with all those, including the newly diagnosed with HIV, as well as other chronic health conditions.

Keywords:   resilience, survival, theories of resilience, advice, young HIV-positive gay men
