Essential Psychology for Nurses by Graham Russell

Book Description

This text examines the concepts which are fundamental to everyday nursing practice. Understanding how individuals function psychologically in health and illness is vital to providing appropriate care for all patients and clients. Assuming no previous knowledge of the subject, the author explores the basis of individual psychology focusing on personality traits, beliefs systems, body-image and self-esteem. Periods of illness are seen as psychologically demanding events which individuals cope with in different ways. The book considers how we recognize and interpret the signs and symptoms of illness in ourselves, what influences the decision to seek help and whether or not we comply with advice from health professionals. The contribution of psychological factors to physical wellbeing is also examined and the link between psychological theory and patient care is examined throughout the book. With scenarios and questions to help the reader apply the concepts to nursing practice Essential Psychology for Nurses provides an excellent introduction to the subject for pre-registration students and those studying psychological concepts in relation to health care.
