View all copies of this ISBN edition:

An introductory text emphasizing the use of the nursing process in the entire range of psychiatric disorders and psychosocial problems. It includes comprehensive coverage of all the common psychiatric and mental health problems seen in hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, and the community, and outlines ways to deal with them. Organized by an anxiety conceptual framework, this book discusses the nurse's fears, feelings, and reactions, as well as theory and interventions for all disorders. All material within clinical chapters is organized by ANA standards of psychiatric nursing - which reflect the 5 steps of the nursing process. The book uses patient-centered long-term and short-term goals and gives specific interventions for goals. Clinical chapters feature case studies with detailed nursing care plans that provide example of theory in practice. It covers current social issues that nurses face involving mental health implications - such as caring for AIDS patients, the mentally ill homeless, the elderly, alcoholics, and drug abusers. It also features learning tools such as case studies, learning objectives, outlines, key terms and concepts in bold type, self-study exercises, charts of interventions and rationales, and tear-out medication charts.
