This book brings together a collection of the author's works which address many of the most pressing issues in psychiatric nursing today. The selected writings have been assembled to present the reader with a cohesive view of the author's philosophy of nursing. Each chapter deals with either the process of defining the theoretical and practical basis of psychiatric nursing, or the issues of nursing in general as they relate to the practice of pyschiatric nursing. Each chapter is followed by an invited commentary from respected psychiatric nurses.
"This is a book for beginners and seasoned nurses, as well as general readers, who would like an inside look at psychiatric nursing practice. I recommend it very highly." Dr Shirley A Smoyak, Mental Health Practice, Vol 3, No2, October 1999
