Stuart & Sundeen's Principles and Practice of Psychiatric Nursing has become the leading psychiatric nursing text for undergraduate students. This popularity is due to its comprehensive coverage of important nursing and medical concepts, the widely-used stress-adaptation framework, a biopsychosocial approach that stresses the mental health continuum and strong, current coverage of psychobiology and psychopharmacology reflecting the contemporary biological emphasis in psychiatry. Dr. Michele Laraia, a recognised nursing expert on psychobiology and psychopharmacology, joins Dr. Stuart as new co-author on the sixth edition. The sixth edition preserves its proven approach and expands upon it with new chapters on managed care, care in the home, and the family's perspective. The clinical chapters on depression, personality disorders, schizophrenia and substance abuse have been revised to include all medical diagnostic categories. New multimedia references have been added at the end of chapters, including Related Mosby Videos and Your Internet Connection, which lists the most helpful Web sites that students and faculty can access on the Internet.
