EAP's: A Viable Means of Supporting Professionals Working in AIDS
By the end of 1990, 156,024 cases of AIDS had been reported throughout the United States (CDC, 1991). Perhaps even more devastating is that 100,813 individuals, 64.6% of the reported AIDS cases have died (CDC, 1991). The AIDS crisis has now found its way into most segments of our society. Women are now the fastest growing category of people with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (Stuntzner-Gibson, 1991). HIV disease is increasingly being identified with poor people, intravenous drug users and ethnic minorities (Honey, 1988; Macks, 1988).
