"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 ... ".

It is must for every student nurse out there, a book dedicated to the nursing professions most important aspect; understanding our patients needs."
