Organizational Transition

Part of the complexity of working in HIV/AIDS is that transition, or the experience of feeling in a state of “chaos” can begin to feel like the “norm”. Understanding the inter-relationship between AIDS-related Loss and Transition theory can help normalize the challenges of working in HIV/AIDS, resulting in enhanced team functioning. When members recognize, respect and have the skills to respond to each other’s individual response patterns and peer support needs, the overall health of the organizational team culture is strengthened.
