Publisher Comments:

Creating the perfect balance of knowledge-based and skills-based content you will find no better tool for learning the information and the empathy required in psychiatric nursing care than Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Fourth Edition. The book approaches this topic with a unique perspective that will immediately engage and educate readers by utilizing excerpts from literature movie clips and classic art to convey the actual experiences of clients with psychiatric disorders. Coverage includes the scientific basis for major conditions and disorder types such as anxiety depression mania and schizophrenia followed by therapeutic and pharmacological interventions for the people experiencing them. Special consideration is also provided for the suicidal client the client who abuses chemical substances and survivors of violence or abuse and special populations including the homeless and the incarcerated. An important chapter on self-care for the nurse provides much needed information about taking care of oneself to sustain professional ability. Comprehensive in its scope and one-of-a-kind in its delivery this is a valuable resource that informatively and accurately presents the realities of psychiatric nursing care.
