Introducing Mental Health Nursing offers a systematic overview of both the science and the art of caring for people experiencing mental health problems. It addresses the attitudes, knowledge and skills required to provide care for service users across all health-care settings, from specialist mental health services to general hospitals and community care.

Challenging Practice in Mental Health Nursing questions theories and practices which have become central in mental health care today. The book is inspired by the growing concerns of both the public and professionals about accepted methods of practice and their effects on patients and clients. Liam Clarke argues that while many different theories and models exist their validity and effectiveness in caring for patients has yet to be proved. Chapters examine: * holism * Rogerian and other counselling theories * forensic psychiatry * rational emotive therapy. This will be an essential and thought-provoking read for nurses and other mental health professionals who want to develop as critical practitioners.

Unit 3: Current Social and Emotional Concerns covers topics that are not exclusive to mental health settings, including legal and ethical issues; anger, aggression, and hostility; abuse and violence; and grief and loss. Nurses in all practice settings find themselves confronted with issues related to these topics. Additionally, many legal and ethical concerns are interwoven with issues of violence and loss. Unit 4: Nursing Practice for Psychiatric Disorders covers all the major categories identified in the DSM-IV-TR. Each chapter provides current information on etiology, onset and clinical course, treatment, and nursing care.

Pioneering Theories in Nursing traces the origins of nursing theories through their founders. Unlike other nursing theory texts, this book provides the personal story on some of the greatest nursing leaders, clinicians and theorists to date so the reader can understand the context within which the nursing pioneer developed their theory. It will attempt to explain the theories and practice of nursing and provide food for thought for students and practitioners, encouraging reflective thinking. Each section begins with an overview of the chapters and identifies common themes. Designed to be highly user-friendly, each chapter follows a standard structure with a short biography, a summary on their special interests and an outline of their writings before each theory is examined in detail. The chapter then looks at instances of how this theory has been put into practice and what influence this process has had on the wider nursing community. Further links to other theorists are provided as well as key dates in the life of the theorists and a brief profile.

The second edition of this popular textbook continues to demonstrate the application of theory to nursing practice, presenting a clear strategy for choosing and applying specific theories to specific clinical situations. Each chapter follows a common format: a case is presented, along with several possible theories that might be applied to it. Each theory includes a concise description, with references and recommended readings for those who want more in-depth coverage. Finally one theory is selected for each case and is described in detail, ultimately creating a nursing care plan, with support from the theory. In all, nearly 10 middle-range theories are presented. New to this edition is a selection in each chapter about research supporting the theories discussed. In recognition that a case study format can not encompass all practice circumstances, the final chapter provides the framework for using the strategy in any clinical situation.
