Description - Essential Psychology for Nurses by Graham Russell
This text is an introduction to psychological concepts for all those studying the subject in relation to health care for the first time. Assuming no previous knowledge, the author explores the basis of individual psychology and considers: how we recognize and interpret the signs and symptoms of illness in ourselves; what influences the decision to seek help; compliance and non-compliance with advice; and the contribution of psychological factors to physical well-being. The importance of understanding psychological theory in order to provide appropriate patient care is underlined throughout. Illustrative scenarios and self-test questions are included to help the reader apply the concepts to nursing practice.
