Principles and Practice of Psychiatric Nursing Book Review:

Principles and Practice of Psychiatric Nursing, 8th Edition provides comprehensive coverage of psychiatric nursing. Beginning with fundamental coverage of all key psychiatric nursing principles, it goes on to address the complete continuum of care - including mental health promotion and illness prevention, crisis intervention, and psychiatric rehabilitation and recovery. The book then applies psychiatric nursing principles to specific clinical disorders based on adaptive-maladaptive coping responses, the six-step nursing process, and DSM-IV-TR and NANDA diagnoses. Subsequent chapters describe various modalities of treatment (psychopharmacology, somatic therapies, cognitive and behavioral therapies, managing aggressive behavior, and more), hospital-based and community-based care, and treatment of special populations. The Stuart Stress Adaptation Model provides a consistent nursing-oriented framework for understanding health and wellness. Evidence-based algorithms are presented in lieu of the less relevant critical pathways found in other texts. The latest American Nurses Association's Standards of Care prepare students for the realities of evidenced-based care in nursing practice. A vibrant, full-color design enhances and enriches students' understanding of essential concepts. Short vignettes in a patient's and family's own words give readers a different perspective of the caregiving process. Case studies present in-depth clinical scenarios that show each step of the nursing process, demonstrating realistic applications of the nursing process. Critical thinking questions interspersed throughout the text encourage independent clinical reasoning. Numerous boxes and tables throughout the book highlight important issues and current topics related to chapter content in visual, easy-to-digest segments. Citing the Evidence boxes provide summaries of recent clinical research, with new boxes added to the Evolve website each month. Nursing Treatment Plan Summaries present care plans, including patient goals with nursing interventions and rationales, to guide nursing care related to the treatment of major disorders. Patient Education Plans and Family Education Plans include key information nurses need to communicate to the patient and family members. Sample Therapeutic Dialogues for nurse-patient interactions demonstrate the difference between therapeutic and nontherapeutic communication. Clinical chapters have been carefully revised and updated to include the latest research and appropriate nursing and medical diagnoses relevant to each disorder. A strengthened family focus and more in-depth discussion of outpatient care reflect current trends in psychiatric nursing. NIC and NOC are introduced in the nursing process chapter (chapter 12) and incorporated as appropriate into disorders chapters. Chapter Focus Points at the end of each chapter provide a comprehensive review of important information. Key terms are defined in the glossary and listed with page references at the end of the chapter in which they appear. A comprehensive list of behavioral rating scales is offered as an appendix for easy reference. A companion CD-ROM offers animations, interactive exercises, review questions for the NCLEX examination, and an audio glossary for additional study and review. A companion CD-ROM offers animations, interactive exercises, review questions for the NCLEX examination, and an audio glossary for additional study and review. New chapters explore the latest trends and relevant topics, including: Families as Resources, Caregivers, and Collaborators (Chapter 11); Family Interventions (Chapter 33) Community-Based Psychiatric Nursing Care (Chapter 35); and Psychological Care of Patients with Life Threatening Illness (Chapter 40).

Dr. Kostrubala and the Invention of Running Therapy Book Review:

Dr. Thaddeus L. Kostrubala, an anthropologist, doctor and psychiatrist (retired) from Santa Fe, New Mexico, is a pioneer in the field of running therapy and founder of the related therapy approach known as Paleoanalysis. In particular, he is known for his work "The Joy of Running” (1976), which became a bestseller and a classic in the US running and international running therapy movement. It has been translated into multiple languages, and was recently reissued and expanded by the author. This text by Wolfgang W. Schüler, M.A., Germany, traces the visionary Dr. Kostrubala’s running therapy path - which sometimes resembles a Greek tragedy - from its beginnings to the present day. It is being published on the occasion of Dr. Kostrubala’s 90th birthday in September 2020, in English, Spanish, French and German, in the form of a book with historical and current photos.

Confesiones de un Psiquiatra Book Review:

Confesiones de un Psiquiatra un relato escrito en forma coloquial sin someterse a tradiciones o formatos literarios. El autor relata algunos fragmentos de su vida exitosa y azarosa en una forma sencilla a la vez que hace reflexiones sobre diversos temas que tienen alguna relacion con sus vivencias, desde aspectos muy comunes de la vida cotidiana hasta reflexiones sobre aspectos de tipo filosofico, psicologico, sociopoliticos entre otros. En sus relatos no sigue una forma cronologica exacta sino que mucha veces avanza y retrocede para comunicarse con el lector como si lo tuviera frente a el como un interlocutor valido. Siendo un libro motivador, comunica no solo experiencias conducientes al exito sino tambien comparte situaciones de fracaso y dolor y la forma de superarlas. Lo mas caracteristico es la transmision en forma consistente de mensajes positivos que insiste en transmitir a sus lectores haciendoles participes de las experiencias de un ser real y hasta cierto punto considerado reservado y enigmatico como se suele pensar de un psiquiatra. El autor vencio todas esas barreras y se revela tal como ha sido y sigue siendo a como lo haria en el sillon de un psicoterapeuta o en el confesionario. El autor esta consciente de los riesgos que puede correr un profesional de la salud mental que se destapa y desprende de todo prejuicio con la esperanza de poner a la disposicion de sus lectores un testimonio del cual pueda sustraer algo util para sus vidas y sus ocupaciones o profesiones. Habiendo enfrentado tantas situaciones de alto riesgo, el autor hace apologia del ejercito de angeles que lo han protegido y que el identifica con los seres a quien ha dado amor y respeto y que le han retribuido esos afectos en forma incondicional, tanto en su familia como en muchas personas que fue encontrando en su largo recorrido por el mundo. De formacion transcultural, el autor ha podido convivir armoniosamente con personas de diversas creencias religiosas, politicas y origen etnico. El autor ha hecho muchas renuncias excepto renunciar a vivir en libertad, lejos de los opresores de las libertades y derechos individuales, y no renuncia a la esperanza de algun dia vivir en un mundo libre de prejuicios, estereotipos y dictaduras depredadoras y brutales, ni tampoco renuncia a la esperanza de que cada ser humano pueda aprender a usar los recursos personales que todos poseemos para ser ricos, interdependientes y exitosos en vez de pobres, lastimosamente dependientes y fracasados. El mensaje que el autor intenta transmitir en sus confesiones es un mensaje de vida y prosperidad por medios eticos, repudiando enfaticamente el lema de que "los fines justifican los medios"

Routledge Handbook of Global Mental Health Nursing Book Review:

Awarded second place in the 2017 AJN Book of the Year Awards in Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing. "I welcome, at long last, a book on global mental health targeted to nurses, the front-line health worker for billions of people around the world.? The roles that nurses can, and should, play in mental health care are diverse and this book addresses both well-trod as well as emerging concerns across the continuum of care from promotion to prevention to treatment. Importantly, at the heart of this diversity is the foundation of compassion and care, the hallmark of the nursing profession." – Vikram Patel, Professor of International Mental Health and Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow in Clinical Science, Centre for Global Mental Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK Psychiatric disorders have consistently been identified as serious and significant global burdens of disease, yet meeting the needs of people in mental distress has not often been a priority in health care. This important reference work sets out the knowledge base for understanding the state of mental health care globally, and translating that into effective practice. The Handbook provides a historical and contemporary context of mental health care, identifies and discusses evidence-based standards of care and strategies for mental health promotion and explores the need to deliver care from interdisciplinary and community-based models, placing these imperatives within a human rights and empowerment framework. It is made up of four core sections which look at: Key and emerging issues that affect global mental health practice and research, including the social context of health; Evidence-based health promotion strategies for major areas of practice internationally; A range of country studies, reflecting different problems and approaches to mental health and mental health care internationally; and What constitutes empowering practice. The only comprehensive work looking at global perspectives on mental health nursing, this is an invaluable reference for all students, academics and professionals involved in mental health research with an interest in global or cross-cultural issues.
