Overview

Now in its Seventh Edition, this psychiatric and mental health nursing text covers both care of patients with psychiatric disorders and the psychosocial aspects of physiological disorders. Geared toward LPN/LVN students, the book's format reflects the nursing model and the shift of psychiatric nursing care from hospitals to community-based settings. New content includes care planning and psychotropic drug monitoring and the DSM-IV-TR. Other features include an increased emphasis on communication, and a family and resource support list that includes selected Web resources. End-of-chapter review questions allow the reader to balance knowledge-based, analysis and application questions. The Ancillary package consists of a printed Instructor's Manual and Test Bank on disk.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Cheryl Laskowski
This sixth edition text addresses basic concepts related to mental health nursing. The author has updated the book to more fully describe new information relating to psychiatric disorders and psychopharmacology. She also addresses common psychiatric disorders and therapeutic psychiatric nursing interventions. The author's overall intent is to facilitate the delivery of high quality and compassionate care to those clients with psychiatric disorders. This book does meet her stated objectives. The book is written at a basic level, as it is geared towards licensed practical nursing students and registered nursing students. Appropriate charts and tables are used throughout the text to highlight pertinent information. Sample N-CLEX style review questions are included in each chapter, as is bibliographic information with suggestions for further reading. The text includes a glossary of commonly used psychiatric terms and a Psychosocial Assessment Tool developed by the author. I recommend this text as a basic source of information about mental health and illness for nursing students. Critical thinking questions distributed throughout the book serve as a vehicle for further discussion relating to the concepts addressed. However, nurses already practicing in psychiatric settings would likely find the text to be too basic and superficial to meet their needs.
