Meet the Author

Carol Ren Kneisl, RN, MS, APRN, DABFN, has had a variety of psychiatric-mental health nursing experiences as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Adult Psychiatry-Mental Health. She has taught psychiatric-mental health nursing in a diploma school, a baccalaureate program, and a master's program that prepared clinical specialists in psychiatric-mental health nursing. She has been a staff nurse, a nurse manager, and a nursing supervisor, and has supervised the group therapy of clinical nurse specialists and psychiatry medical residents.

Carol is also a nurse entrepreneur. She is the President of Nursing Transitions, a corporation that provides continuing education for psychiatric-mental health and corrections/forensic nurses. Her company sponsored the first national nursing conference focused on AIDS. She is a national and international speaker and consults with nurses and mental health and forensic agencies on topics such as group therapy, stress management, self-awareness issues and strategies, implementation of client rights, competency to stand trial, and negligence and malpractice in psychiatric-mental health nursing.

Carol has authored or contributed to 18 nursing textbooks and several nursing journals. She has been an associate editor of a psychiatric nursing review journal and has served on several editorial boards. She is a Diplomate in the American College of Forensic Examiners, Board of Forensic Nurse Examiners (DABFN). Carol was among the first nurses in the country to develop clinical specialist certification in conjunction with nurses from New York and New Jersey. Their work formed the basis for the national certification granted through the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Nurses Association.

She is a graduate of one of the oldest diploma schools in the country, the Millard Fillmore Hospital School of Nursing in Buffalo, New York, from which she received the Alumna of the Century award on the occasion of the school's 100-year anniversary. Carol has a BS in nursing from the University of Buffalo and an MS as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in psychiatric nursing from the University of California at San Francisco, and holds a certificate in community mental health administration from the State University of New York at Buffalo.

Carol is a docent of the Pensacola Museum of Art and the mother of two adult children–a daughter who is a right-brained artist and a son who is a left-brained mathematician. She writes and consults from her home on the beach in Orange Beach, Alabama.

Eileen Trigoboff, RN, APRN/PMH-BC, DNS, DABFN, is a Clinical Nurse Specialist with a specialty in Adult Psychiatry-Mental Health in a private psychotherapy practice in Western New York.

She has a position as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in psychiatry at the Buffalo Psychiatric Center in Buffalo, New York. Dr. Trigoboff is the Chair of the Institutional Review Board at the facility that reviews, modifies, and supervises all scientific research in health-related issues conducted in a large part of New York State under the Office of Mental Health's auspices. She has taught associate degree, bachelor's degree, and graduate-level nursing students on all aspects of the nursing process, research methodologies, statistics, and pharmacology. Dr. Trigoboff has also been the Nurse of Distinction, an honor awarded to outstanding nurse clinicians.

Dr. Trigoboff earned her BSN, her MS as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in psychiatric nursing, and her Doctorate in Nursing Science (DNS) in psychiatric nursing from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Dr. Trigoboff received a National Institutes of Mental Health Individual National Research Service Award Pre-Doctoral Research Fellowship for her dissertation research on medication teaching and psychopharrnacology. Her research interests span nursing interventions from the use of the Nurses' Observation Scale for Inpatient Evaluations (NOSIE) for assault predictions with seriously and persistently mentally ill clients to the effectiveness of a relaxation audiotape program on psychiatric inpatients. She is a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society for Nursing and is a Diplomate in the American College of Forensic Examiners, Board of Forensic Nurse Examiners (DABFN). Dr. Trigoboff is author, co-author, and contributor to 12 books and numerous journal articles. She has presented internationally on a wide variety of clinical, research, and professional topics to health care, governmental, and corporate organizations. She continues to be an international speaker and consultant on topics including professional issues, assessment, psychopathologies, and interventions. She also serves on the editorial boards of several professional journals. She is active in community service venues, including clinical settings and family support groups. She also serves as a computer systems consultant to facilities in her local area and belongs to numerous professional nursing organizations.
