This psychiatric-mental health textbook emphasizes interpersonal relations as the foundation for expert practice in nursing. It provides an historical overview of the profession, and guides the student through the essential phases of self-discovery necessary to integrate interpersonal nursing theory into practice with various psychiatric populations.
The book presents content designed to foster self-growth, including the importance of boundary management, in preparation for work with clients. Psychodynamic frames of reference and current neurobiological information underpinning practice are reviewed. Subsequent chapters focus on prominent and common mental illnesses, and weave both the psychodynamic and neurobiological concepts into strategies for nursing interventions. Clinical case studies with critical thinking exercises augment chapter discussions.Key topics:
