BERNI, Vanessa Limana  y  ROSO, Adriane. Being an adolescent with HIV/AIDS: possibilities and limitations. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.3, pp. 582-601. ISSN 1677-1168.

This study seeks to examine how the presence of HIV/AIDS interacts in the process of becoming an adolescent with HIV/AIDS, especially regarding the construction of identity. Case Studies with three adolescents who knew their HIV diagnosis were carried out using the semi-structured interviews method and the human figure drawing (DFH). The results point to the experience of a process full of many physical and psychological changes that can be compared with the common experience of adolescence. However looking more carefully at the social life of these adolescents, it is clearly perceived that the silence resulting from the experience of living with HIV/ AIDS, since they were born, produces some limitations and implications to the process of identity construction. In conclusion, it was pointed out that it is necessary to discuss with the adolescents, their families and peers, and with care providers about the social representations of aids and its impact on the identities constructed by all persons living with the disease
