Overview

Based on the biopsychosocial model of psychiatric nursing, this text provides thorough coverage of mental health promotion, assessment, and interventions in adults, families, children, adolescents, and older adults. On the forefront of the shift towards today's emphasis on evidence-based psychiatric nursing, this text continues to highlight current research evidence and describe evidence-based care. Included in the book's many useful and engaging features are psychoeducation checklists, therapeutic dialogues, NCLEX® notes, vignettes of famous people with mental disorders, research for best practice boxes, and illustrations showing the interrelationship of the biologic, psychological, and social domains of mental health and illness. The Fifth Edition has been updated with an emphasis on recovery throughout the chapters, plus a new chapter on sexual disorders.

The book contains predominantly two-color illustrations, with some black-and-white and color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Eileen Trigoboff
This text provides an in-depth examination and exploration of each topic in psychiatric nursing in its entirety, with abundant resource materials included. The purpose is to provide a theoretical and informational knowledge base to assist students in sharpening critical thinking skills as well as clinical judgment abilities. It seeks to integrate research based nursing management of the psychiatric patient into the education of mental health care providers and succeeds admirably. This is a needed and extensively informative resource. This book is written for psychiatric nursing faculty and students and is also useful to the general practitioner and the specialist as well. Both editors are well known in major clinical areas of psychiatric/mental health nursing with established expertise in the clinical application of the treatment modalities discussed. The color illustrations appropriately vary from basic to intricate and portray sometimes very difficult concepts exceptionally well. Each chapter has critical thinking challenge questions and practical patient teaching materials. The references are current and diverse. It is thorough, complete, user-friendly, and functional for clinicians and students alike. Overall this text is nicely organized and presented. It includes current practice issues that are difficult to find in other contemporary publications (i.e., depot antipsychotic medications may be given subcutaneously). It is valuable as a comprehensive primer and as a clinician's resource.
