Principles and Practice of Psychiatric Nursing by Michele Laraia
Principles and Practice of Psychiatric Nursing 7th edition is the most well established leading psychiatric nursing text for undergraduate students. Its popularity is due to its comprehensive coverage of important nursing and medical concepts, the widely used stress-adaptation framework, and biopsychosocial approach stresses the mental health continuum and strong, current coverage of psychobiology and psychopharmacology reflects the contemporary biological emphasis in psychiatry. The seventh edition offers a new, dynamic four-colour text. The basic structure and award-winning approach of the book is retained in the revision, accentuated by a new theoretic emphasis on evidence-based practice, which strives to decrease the knowledge gap between clinical research and everyday practice. Integrating this cutting-edge information will make Stuart & Laraia's approach unique in the psychiatric nursing market.
