There is growing evidence that patients who live longer are significantly different from those who start out just as well but fall ill sooner, said psychiatrist Gail Ironson of the University of Miami.She reported findings from several studies of 182 HIV-positive men and women at the recent American Psychosomatic Society meeting in Barcelona.Although some studies have linked personal qualities to a better prognosis with AIDS, Ironson's is the first in which most patients were taking protease inhibitors. "Even with lifesaving drugs," Ironson says, "this shows that psychological factors are still important in predicting who's going to become a long survivor."Several studies from Ironson's research team show: à Survivors living up to seven years after a serious AIDS-related illness are much more likely than a control group of patients to express compassion for others and spiritual convictions.They have lower levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that impairs the immune system, "and that may give them a survival edge," Ironson says. à HIV-positive people with no AIDS-related illnesses to start had less of the virus in their system a year later, and healthier blood counts, if they found some meaning in their HIV diagnosis, such as a signal that they are supposed to change their lives for the better.Those who saw meaning were less anxious and depressed. à Self-acceptance and acceptance by family, friends and co-workers also predicted healthier blood counts and lower virus levels during a year. "You can't change your family, but the take-home message is to find friends or a support group that will accept you, and get into a positive work environment if you can," Ironson said.

Project title - The Effect of Three Treatments for Recent Trauma on Trauma-related Cognitions
This research project involves a comparison between three interventions (EMDR, stress management, and standard care) to "mitigate the development of PTSD and to protect the psychological and physical health in disadvantaged people. "Aim 1: Effect of EMDR on outcome Variables: To determine the efficacy of EMDR compared to group administered stress management with a trauma focus (STRESS), and a psychological first aid control group on psychosocial and health outcome variables. "Aim 2: Who benefits most from this brief intervention: predicting recovery for the outcome variables from the nature of the trauma, past trauma history, substance use, and borderline personality disorder?"
In September 2012, Dr. Ironson reports the preliminary results: In a study comparing the effectiveness of brief (4 sessions) treatment for acute traumatic stress, there was a significant effect of EMDR vs.
