"This beautifully written book ... clearly explains the application of psychological concepts and theories to health and succinctly summarises key issues. Each chapter also provides a series of vignettes capturing the kind of real-life situations health and social care professionals will encounter in their own practice and a set of thought-provoking exercises ... These will be invaluable in developing critical thinking skills and growing the capacity to provide the kind of empathic care which is the heart of person-centred practice" Dr Wendy Cousins, Course Director, University of Ulster School of Nursing, UK "I have recommended earlier editions of this book and now am delighted to say that this latest edition is even better. The authors continue to clearly explain the relevance of psychological theories, models and approaches to nursing care but now, through the use of frequent reflective activities, vignettes and a 'psychosoap' family, students are also highly encouraged to identify how the theory will help them to become the high quality holistic practitioners they desire to be." Anthony Duffy, Nurse Tutor, College of Human and Health Sciences, Swansea University, UK "This new edition embraces innovation in student learning. The use of the 'psychosoap' provides a structure which is meaningful and insightful. The chapter exercises have 'realworld' application and can be used to understand your own and others motivations, beliefs and values. Unlike many psychology texts ... this book offers real 'food for thought' and provides the building blocks which link theory to practice. It will also be a valuable resource for those who like to 'dip in' to a book." Philip Larkin, Professor of Clinical Nursing (Palliative Care), and Joint Chair, University College Dublin and Our Lady's Hospice & Care Services, Ireland "This new edition continues to improve the reader's experience, providing comprehensive insight into the complex subject of psychology.

It is a text which is well designed for student use and application and it has employed a number of innovative features ... An excellent resource, which I would highly recommend."

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.
