For Fundamentals of Nursing, Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing, Psychosocial Nursing and Nursing Specialty LPN/LVN courses, also for Mental Health/Psychiatric Technician Programs.

Part of the LPN/LVN specific series, this practical guide to applying the nursing process to the care of clients with mental health disorders and general clients with psychosocial issues teaches mental health nursing as it is really practiced by practical/vocational nurses. Students are encouraged to develop empathy for clients and critical thinking skills to meet the challenges of client care. Case studies, client examples and statements from clients in their own words help students understand mental health and psychosocial nursing practice.
