Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing / Edition 1by Noreen Cavan Frisch, Lawerence E. Frisch, Frisch
Pub. Date: 02/28/1998
Publisher: Cengage Learning
This textbook covers all the major areas of psychiatric nursing. Each chapter covering content of the major psychiatric conditions includes a presentation of the experiences of a client suffering from the psychiatric condition, excerpted from literature. Students can use this to better understand their clients' experiences before assessing and diagnosing their needs. This imaginative use of literature, art, and film clips makes the text come alive for readers, and increases comprehension of the psychiatric condition and its impact on clients' lives. Reflective Thinking boxes and other features encourage critical thinking, empathy, and self-awareness.
