Now in its second edition, this groundbreaking text and reference continues to be the only resource for APRNs to focus on integrative interventions for individuals with mental health problems across the lifespan.
Organized around psychiatric syndromes, the text covers neurobiology, theory and research evidence related to psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and CAM interventions. It provides a virtual buffet of clear treatment options in the form of well-designed decision trees and accompanying explanatory narratives. The text also includes a section on such special considerations as substance misuse, medical problems, pregnancy, and forensic issues that often co-occur with psychiatric syndromes. Concise, clear language and abundant charts, graphs, and algorithms enhance the book's value in supporting sound clinical reasoning.
