Eileen Trigoboff
This second edition text (the first was published in 1996) is a comprehensive examination of the field of psychiatric mental health nursing. There is a deliberate and thorough effort made to give shape to the specialty and to make it approachable. This text is primarily intended to help students and practicing psychiatric nurses deliver professional nursing care for clients and their families in a variety of circumstances. The objectives are well met. This text is written for students, new graduates, and seasoned practitioners and has applicability to each segment of this audience. It is written by an excellent panel of contributors. Some of the best features of the book include the clear, useful illustrations and how complex concepts are explained in a rational and easily digested manner. The Nursing Care in the Community boxes give an important outpatient perspective to diagnostic groupings. Research is highlighted as a basis of nursing interventions. Very helpful examples of less commonly known doctrines, terms, functions, and trends are found throughout the text. The tear-out drug cards are a staple in this specialty and continue to be a necessity. Both the student and the expert would appreciate this presentation -- especially the breadth and depth. The organization of the topics and the interesting explanations make this a functional text as a primer for the student and a resource for the expert psychiatric mental health nurse clinician.

Booknews
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)
