"This book is a 'must' for degree level nursing and other health care students ... provides an excellent introduction to psychology for anyone working in social care, but is detailed enough for psychology graduates who left the subject behind some years ago ... could make a real difference to people's lives who are on the delivery or receiving end of health care ... ".
"I would highly recommend this text to any student studying psychology as part of the CFP or later years and to qualified nurses with an interest in psychology and it's relationship to holistic practice. It is must for every student nurse out there, a book dedicated to the nursing professions most important aspect; understanding our patients needs."
S. A. Hough, First Year Nursing Student
