Loss and Trauma Among HIV/AIDS Workers Working with Children
In this discourse analytic article I illustrate, first, how a group of HIV/AIDS workers working with children constructed such children as innocent and suffering the loss of an ideal childhood and, second, how the HIV/AIDS workers held adults accountable for the children's loss of an ideal childhood. I conclude the article by proposing that, given that inflicted interpersonal traumas are considered more harmful, the implication of participants’ constructions for HIV/AIDS workers is a potentially perpetuated emotional strain and traumatic experience.
