This title is unique, as no other psychiatric/mental health nursing text has ever brought together 'opposing' or contrasting views of the same issue, and subsequently invited two separate chapters to be written in order to articulate the different perspectives in the debate. Further, no book has then followed up such a wide and thorough discussion by inviting a third party to offer commentary. Therefore, it presents the most complete, balanced arguments possible in order to inform, educate, and stimulate psychiatric/mental health nurses.
