A Nurse Speaks
Chapter in Foundations of Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing (2nd Edition), edited by Elizabeth M. Vacarolis.
Teaches undergraduate nursing students to care for clients with the full range of psychiatric disorders and psychosocial problems. Features a popular anxiety continuum framework and nursing process format. Chapters on group communication and aggressive behaviors teach students to work with groups and to diffuse potentially dangerous situations. Learning objectives, self-study questions, bold-faced key terms and concepts, tear-out pocket-sized medication cards, and sample care plans simplify learning. An instructor's manual and examaster are also available.
