Now in its second edition, this groundbreaking text and reference continues to be the only resource for APRNs to focus on integrative interventions for individuals with mental health problems across the lifespan. Combining theory and practice, it provides a clear framework for integrating psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) into advanced practice nursing. The second edition is thoroughly updated to reflect current research, new classifications in DSM 5, genetic testing, and increased use of telemental health delivery. It builds upon its lifespan focus and updates quick-access pediatric pointers and aging alerts. Additionally, the resource incorporates the 2014 publication of the ANA Scope and Standards of Practice for Psychiatric Nurses, offers a new focus on QSEN requirements, and responds to the need to reduce health disparities and address cultural considerations.

Organized around psychiatric syndromes, the text covers neurobiology, theory and research evidence related to psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and CAM interventions. It provides a virtual buffet of clear treatment options in the form of well-designed decision trees and accompanying explanatory narratives. The text also includes a section on such special considerations as substance misuse, medical problems, pregnancy, and forensic issues that often co-occur with psychiatric syndromes. Concise, clear language and abundant charts, graphs, and algorithms enhance the books' value in supporting sound clinical reasoning.
