Summary, etc.: Dr. Boyd revised the sixth edition to prepare nursing leaders who challenge the status quo, partner with their patients in the delivery of care, and use the latest evidence in their nursing practice. The sixth edition has an emphasis on the recovery-interventions and wellness, with coverage of mental health promotion, assessment, and interventions in adults, families, children, adolescents and older adults. The text presents complex concepts in easy-to-understand language with multiple examples and explanations. Special features include threaded case studies that are mapped to the chapter’s nursing care plans, therapeutic dialogue. In addition, new sections emphasizing wellness and primary care integration will be added along with the retention of popular features such as Clinical Vignettes and NCLEX Notes. The sixth edition includes access to the online video series, Lippincott Theory to Practice Video Series: Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing, available in the Student and Instructor Resources. These videos display mental health disorders, allowing students to gain experience and a deeper understanding of mental health patients. -- publisher.
