Overview

As scientific knowledge about the biological influences of mental disorders increases, diagnosis and treatment of these disorders are changing to reflect this new understanding. PSYCHOBIOLOGICAL FOUNDATIONS OF PSYCHIATRIC CARE presents the essential information for psychiatric nurses to understand the biological bases underlying human behavior and mental illness. The book is divided into two parts. Part I details neuroanatomy and neurophysiology with many full-color drawings, photographs, and brain scan images. Part II discusses the psychobiology of the major mental disorders together with the behavioral manifestations and clinical implications of each disorder. TOC:

Written by a distinguished team of four leaders in neuropathology, neurobiology and neuropsychiatry research and practice to ensure definitive, authoritative, and current information. Describes macroanatomy and microanatomy of the brain to provide a basis for further discussion of the biological aspects of specific mental disorders. Discusses brain imaging techniques, supported by numerous brain scan images, to provide a fundamental understanding of the techniques used to study psychobiological disorders. Addresses the clinical manifestations of the biological aspects of the major mental disorders to promote understanding of the biological bases for the disorders and develop appropriate biological interventions. Offers a consistent presentation of theoretical and clinical information on the major mental disorders to facilitate understanding of the material. Includes the ANA Psychopharmacology Guidelines for Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurses to provide a resource for understanding the relationship between psychobiology and psychopharmacological interventions. Provides a glossary of neuroanatomy and neurobiologic terms to define and explain the fundamental concepts related to psychobiology. Features over 100 full-color brain scans, photographs, and drawings to graphically illustrate brain anatomy and function. Presents a visually-stimulating full-color design throughout that makes the text more inviting and information more accessible.

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

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Eileen Trigoboff, RN, CS, DNS (Buffalo Psychiatric Center)
Description: This is a very detailed and carefully explained book on the neurobiology of psychiatric disorders. This complex subject is presented in digestible portions in this new text.
Purpose: The purpose is to explain neuroanatomical functions and concepts to healthcare professionals. These are important objectives that help promote scientifically based, humane care of psychiatric patients. It explores issues of volition that can interfere with caregiver energy and also relates to countertransference.
Audience: The targeted audience includes healthcare professionals, although students and residents would benefit as well from these perspectives. All authors are credible with biographies enumerating their connection with the book's topic.
Features: The book is very nicely illustrated and well presented. A good number of color plates add a great deal to the understanding of the subject. References are reasonably current. The brief and full table of contents is a nice feature for quick access. The book has a nice appearance with boxes, tables, and lists highlighting the text sufficiently. The color photos of brains with various disorders are very interesting.
Assessment: This is a good quality book that offers a careful explanation for each of the major psychiatric disorders from a psychobiology perspective. It is a very useful resource for all specialties in health care, and it has significant value in the field of psychiatric patient care.
