Applying the Art communication tables walk through nurse-patient interactions to illustrate therapeutic and nontherapeutic communication and provide explanations of mental health nursing concepts. Numerous vignettes offer real-life glimpses into clinical practice by describing patients and their psychiatric disorders. Potential Nursing Diagnoses tables give possible nursing diagnoses for a particular disorder along with the associated signs symptoms. Nursing Interventions tables list interventions for a given disorder or clinical situation, along with rationales for each intervention. Pharmacological, Biological, and Integrative Therapies sections of the clinical chapters cover the range of available treatments for a given disorder, including both traditional and non-traditional treatments.
