Notes

Abstract: People living with HIV (PLH) may experience loss of control over the disease, thus a negative sense of control, increasing stress. Stress undermines the immune system. Behavioral disengagement represents a negative sense of control, while resilience represents a positive sense of control over stressful events. Using the transactional model of stress and coping as a conceptual framework, the authors explored the relationships between negative sense of control, behavioral disengagement, and resilience. Self-report data was collected from 64 PLH recruited from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. After the authors controlled for age, the authors found that resilience and behavioral disengagement account for 26% of the variance in negative sense of control (Adj. R2= .26, F(3,60)= 8.394, p<.001). Negative sense of control was negatively associated with resilience and positively associated with behavioral disengagement. These findings suggest that public health interventions to improve a sense of control for PLH could promote resilience and influence behavioral disengagement.
