This textbook explains basic psychology theory for understanding mental health, biological influences on psychiatric illness, and the dynamics of a therapeutic nurse-client relationship. Separate chapters then describe the etiology, clinical symptoms, assessment, nursing diagnoses, and treatment options for dementia, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, victims of abuse, and the elderly. The fourth edition adds a chapter on cultural and spiritual concepts and three medication tables. The CD-ROM contains practice test questions, concept map care plans, and client teaching guides.

Written by one author, Essentials of Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing is straightforward, consistent and user friendly. It offers an evidence-based, holistic approach to psychiatric nursing, and answers the questions "What do psychiatric nurses do?" in a language that can be understood by all. The enclosed free student CD-ROM includes an electronic test bank with more than 200 NCLEX-style questions, including the new formats. Also on the CD are hundreds of learning activities, case studies with critical thinking questions, nearly 60 psychotropic drug monographs, assessment tools, care plans and critical pathways that the student can customize, and printable client education teaching guides.
Completely revised and updated, this resource provides an evidence-based, holistic approach to mental health nursing-in a streamlined format that explores nursing diagnoses for both physiological and psychological disorders.
