Featuring a clear writing style and a reader-friendly approach, this popular resource focuses on the therapeutic skills expected of the psychiatric nurse. Using the psychotherapeutic management model as a framework, it takes a practical, clinical approach to nursing by integrating clinical realities with the theory taught in nursing schools, emphasizing those duties for which nurses are primarily responsible. This fourth edition features a new full-color design, patient education content, and expanded student worksheets with case studies and critical thinking questions ― making it an even more effective learning tool.

  • A separate unit on the continuum of care discusses care settings and case management.
  • An entire unit on pharmacology includes drug side effects and nursing interventions.
