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. Additionally, the text focuses on treatment issues across the life span and highlights pertinent clinical differences from the adult population through pediatric pointers and aging alerts. Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nursing reflects the extensive practice and educational experience of editors and contributors from the United States, Canada, and Scotland, all of whom are expert APNs.

Key Features:

  • Organized around psychiatric “syndromes,” rather than DSM diagnoses, so it will remain relevant after the DSM-5 is published
  • Integrates neurobiology, theory, and research evidence related to psychotherapy. psychopharmacology, and CAM therapies
  • Provides the much-needed content on psychotherapy newly required for all psychiatric advanced practice nurses (APNA & ISPN White Papers)
  • Supports clinical decision skills through thoughtfully designed, easy-to-follow decision trees
  • ICONS highlight life span clinical management differences through Pediatric Pointers and Aging Alerts

Awarded first place in the 2017 AJN Book of the Year Awards in Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing.

This book introduces an innovative technique for therapeutic communication in mental health nursing, expanding the toolkit for nurses seeking to engage challenging patients who have not responded to more conventional therapeutic methods. Linking nursing communication to current research on metaphor and figuration, it is illustrated with accessible clinical examples.

Metaphor is a key component of talk-based psychotherapies. But many of the patients whom nurses encounter in the inpatient setting are not good candidates for talk-based approaches, at least initially, because they are violent, withdrawn, highly regressed, or otherwise lacking a vocabulary to convey thoughts and feelings. This book offers specific clinical examples of an approach called the “gestural bridge.” This is a method for structuring games and physical activities which connect metaphorically to a patient’s personal themes, activating narrative and observational agency and enabling an exchange of meaning to begin at a time when conventional language is not available. Rooted in what nursing theorists have called the “embodied” or “aesthetic” way of knowing, this approach is both specific and easily grasped.

Drawing from contemporary work in literary theory, semiotics, metaphor theory, cognitive science, philosophy, linguistics, psychoanalysis, and the arts, Therapeutic Communication in Mental Health Nursing is important reading for advanced-level practitioners, students, and researchers interested in communication and relationship-building in nursing.
