This study evaluates the relationship between the social climate from different services and the personal goal-directed activities of 224 individuals with AIDS.
The study's results supported the main hypothesis that « recipient'and » participatory'service involvement uniquely influence personal goal-directed activitie even after considering individuals with AIDS'physical symptoms, psychological distress, income, and recruitment site.
Income and involvement with participatory services were both positively related to the amount of personal goal-directed activity.
Longitudinal analyses suggest that personal initiative contributes to the subsequent amount of personal goal-directed activities a person pursues.
These results suggest further examination of factors contributing to the selection of different service types and of the processes underlying the relationship between participatory services and positive outcomes for clients with AIDS.
