ABSTRACTObjective: The burden of sleep disturbance and depressive symptomology is high for persons living with HIV and particularly so for women. While cognitive behavioral stress management (CBSM) is shown to reduce symptoms of depression and 24-hr urinary free cortisol output (CORT) in HIV+ men, less is known about the effects of CBSM on mood and concomitant sleep disturbance in HIV+ women.

Among patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and their partners, there is evidence for a bi-directional association between poorer relationship satisfaction and the severity of CFS-related fatigue. Objective Here, we hypothesized that relationship dissatisfaction negatively impacts fatigue severity through greate...

Participants (n = 34) were rising high school students and participated in visual art, drama, or mus...

This study examined whether global HIV-associated neurocognitive impairment (NCI), assessed with the HIV-Dementia Scale (HDS), predicted mortality in an ethnically diverse sample of 209 HIV-positive adults. Participants were predominantly in the mid-range of illness at baseline, and followed over 13-years. At baseline, 31 (15%) participants scored in the NCI range (HDS ≤ 10); 58 (28%) died during follow-up. Baseline NCI was significantly associated with earlier mortality (HR = 2.10, 95% CI [1.10...

Data from a nationwide survey suggests that church-based support appears to be the most consequential. The second issue involves embedding these constructs in a conceptual model that traces effects ...
