Overview

The second edition of Psychiatric Nursing: Biological and Behavioral Concepts builds on the successful biological approach and life span perspective of the first edition, and adds a greater focus on nursing care. Beginning with the basic concepts of psychiatric nursing, it presents disorders as they are experienced throughout the life span. The text discusses therapeutic interventions, from psychopharmacologic therapies to group and family therapy to electroconvulsive therapy. It concludes by analyzing the specific roles of the psychiatric nurse in general practice as well as specialty areas. Case studies have been added to encourage application and develop clinical decision-making skills. The scientific foundation has been strengthened even further, with more brain scans and research abstracts, contributing to a full understanding of the scientific basis for psychiatric nursing. This dynamic resource will help develop psychiatric nursing skills while highlighting current advances within this discipline.
