Although this first edition text strongly addresses the biological revolution as well as new concepts in health care delivery, the principal focus is the clients' psychosocial needs and what nurses and other associated professionals can do to help. A balanced nursing and medical approach, with coverage of DSM-IV and related treatments is provided. The text is not tied to any specific nursing framework, but various theoretical approaches are presented. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
