Hope Inspiration among People Living with HIV/AIDS: Theory and Implications for Counselors
Despite the dramatic reversal in prognosis for people living long-term with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), the literature indicates, counter-intuitively, that PLWHA often do not have much hope for the future. The authors undertook a grounded theory study (Cutcliffe & Zinck, 2011) that resulted in a four-stage theory of hope inspiration for PLWHA.
