Product description

This ground-breaking core text integrates psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches into advanced practice nursing and fills a void in the nursing literature. It is organized around psychiatric 'syndromes,' rather than DSM diagnoses, so it will remain current even after the publication of the DSM-V. It provides clear and relevant treatment options in the form of decision trees with additional explanatory narratives. The text integrates neurobiology, theory, and research evidence related to psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and complementary and alternative medicine interventions. While providing comprehensive information on theory and practice, it simplifies complex aspects of treatment with clarity and provides the depth of content appropriate to support sound clinical reasoning required in advanced practice. The book responds to the current backlash against overmedication in psychiatry. It also fulfills the upcoming requirements by APNA and ISPN that Advanced Practice Nurses must have skills in psychotherapy. Finally, the text focuses on treatment issues across the lifespan and highlights pertinent clinical differences from the adult population through pediatric pointers and aging alerts. Key Features: * Organized around psychiatric 'syndromes,' rather than DSM diagnoses, so it will remain relevant after the DSM V publishes * Integrates neurobiology, theory, and research evidence related to psychopharmacology, psychotherapy and CAM therapies * Provides the much-needed content on psychotherapy newly required for all Psychiatric Advanced Practice Nurses (APNA & ISPN White Papers) * Reflects a long-overdue nursing holistic approach, different from the customary medical approach * Supports clinical decision skills through beautifully-designed, easy-to-follow decision trees for initiating treatment guidelines for 'usual' clients and helps to distinguish those who may require more customized therapeutic interventions. * Reflects extensive practice and educational experience of editors and contributors from the United States, Canada, and Scotland, all of whom are expert APNs

"?This text is a wonderful compilation of information that is needed within current advanced practice psychiatric mental health nursing. The chapters are informative, have excellent references and provide up to the minute information that is grounded in evidence-based practices.? Barbara Jones Warren, PhD, RN, CNS-BC, PMH, FAAN Professor, Clinical Nursing Director, Psychiatric Nursing Specialty National Institutes of Health/American Nurses Association Ethnic/Racial Minority Fellow The Ohio State College of Nursing This groundbreaking core text fills a void in nursing literature by integrating psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches into advanced practice nursing. It is organized around psychiatric ""syndromes"" rather than "DSM" diagnoses, so it will remain current even after the publication of the "DSM-5." The book provides clear and relevant treatment options in the form of decision trees with additional explanatory narratives. These decision trees enable practitioners to distinguish ?normal? patients from those who require more customized therapeutic interventions. This holistic text integrates neurobiology, theory, and research evidence related to psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and complementary and alternative medicine interventions. While providing comprehensive information on theory and practice, it simplifies complex aspects of treatment with clarity and provides the depth of content appropriate to support sound clinical reasoning required in advanced practice. The book responds to the current backlash against overmedication in psychiatry. It also fulfills the upcoming requirements by APNA and ISPN that advanced practice psychiatric nurses must have skills in psychotherapy.
