Overview

Psychiatric Nursing focuses on the therapeutic skills expected of today's psychiatric nurse. This book uses the simple and unique model of psychotherapeutic management, which is composed of three components: 1) The Therapeutic Nurse-Patient Relationship provides the nursing student with the tools necessary for effective communication with individual patients, groups of patients, families of patients, and patients from various cultural backgrounds; 2) Psychopharmacology offers information on the most important psychotropic drugs used in psychiatry today, including important nursing responsibilities associated with their administration; and 3) Milieu Management explores the importance of developing the therapeutic environment to maximize its contribution to patient care.

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

Editorial Reviews

Eileen Trigoboff
This text is the third edition of a comprehensive and forthrightly written psychiatric nursing text. The previous editions were published in1991 and 1995. The purpose is to present accurate and meaningful psychiatric nursing topics in a non-sexist language style with features that keep the student in mind, including straightforward language describing the psychotherapeutic management model of psychiatric nursing. These goals are worthy and well met. This book is written for the student, to address important issues of care, and for experts, to refine their care throughout every aspect of practice. The editors and contributors are clinically expert and present the topic areas thoroughly. Many fine features of this text enhance learning. The tear-out worksheets for each chapter and the drug cards are especially useful. Good historical background was noted in several areas, which increases the reader's interest and applicability of the material. The illustrations are generally useful; some are basic with unclear elements. Appendixes and the index are relevant, detailed, and help weave concepts of the text and the realities of practice together. This is a good psychiatric nursing text with clear definitions and descriptions of the psychotherapeutic management model of psychiatric nursing and role differentiations. The updated information in this edition is especially useful for educating and practicing contemporary psychiatric nursing.
