This special student pack includes two books for one discounted price: Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing and Inpatient Psychiatric Nursing. Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing, based on the theories of Hildegard Peplau and Joyce Travelbee, is the first recent book devoted to interpersonal relations as the foundation for therapeutic practice in psychiatric nursing. The undergraduate textbook guides the student through the essential phases of self-discovery necessary to integrate interpersonal nursing theory into practice, and provides a historical overview of the profession. The book addresses the most current ISPN and APNA competencies and presents content designed to foster self-growth, and critical thinking and decision-making skills, as well as to implement therapeutic interventions. This textbook also comes with supplementary materials for instructors and students, including handy review guides, summaries, drug monographs, and hyperlinks to films and video illustrating content. Inpatient Psychiatric Nursing: Clinical Strategies and Practical Interventions reflects the vast changes to our health care system and psychiatric nursing practice, and focuses on four particularly challenging aspects of acute psychiatric nursing practice: keeping the patient safe, stabilizing symptoms, promoting engagement in treatment, and discharge planning. In a systematic, easy-to-access format, the textbook offers proven, clinically useful interventions designed to modify and manage disruptive patient behavior. Also included is a chapter on overcoming one's own barriers to effective nursing in the difficult psychiatric environment.
