Building knowledge and fostering empathy simultaneously, no other book captures nursing care for patients with psychiatric disorders quite like Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing. The distinctive approach of this text is unrivaled, as it utilizes excerpts from literature, movie clips, and classic art to convey actual experiences of clients with psychiatric disorders. The scientific basis of disease is presented for a thorough collection of conditions and disorder types, such as anxiety, depression, mania, and schizophrenia; as well as therapeutic and pharmacological interventions for the people experiencing them. Special consideration is also provided for the suicidal client, the client who abuses chemical substances, and survivors of violence or abuse. Comprehensive in scope and unique in delivery, this title presents the reality of psychiatric nursing care.
