Title: AIDS Counselling
Subtitle: Institutional Interaction and Clinical Practice
Written By: Anssi Peräkylä
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521022880
Series Title: Studies in Interactional Sociolinguistics, 11
Description:

Conversations between AIDS counsellors and their clients bring delicate and
potentially threatening issues into play. In this study Anssi Peräkylä
applies the principles of conversation analysis to his exploration of AIDS
counselling, using data from video-recorded counselling sessions in a
London teaching hospital. He meticulously analyses this data to show how
various questioning techniques, in this case arising from the Milan School
Family Systems theory, operate in these situations, and how counsellors
attempt through the design and placement of their questions to achieve the
cooperation of their clients, with varying success. His conclusions provide
a timely and illuminating insight into the management of a sensitive topic
through various techniques of indirectness.

"This is an excellent theoretical book that discusses the face-to-face
interaction of counselling....An excellent book for all counselors to read
and a highly recommended book for all medical and academic libraries."
