Is a person’s response to a rapid disruption of personal affairs, such as break up of a relationship, an aftermath to earthquake, rape or other forms of assault and an unexpected loss of someone known to them. A crisis situation is a critical situation in which a person is unable to use his/her normal problem solving techniques to resolve a problem. When a crisis occurs it is overwhelming both emotionally and cognitively. In the case of HIV/AIDS, the trigger that leads to crisis might be death of another PLHA, emergence of a new symptom, treatment failure or anything that is perceived as a severe life event. The crisis situation takes the form of a blow, recoil, withdrawal and acceptance, and is best managed through counseling.
