2009 AJN Book of the Year Award Winner! Designated a Doody's Core Title! Middle Range Theory for Nursing is a textbook designed for theory and research courses in master's and doctoral programs. As described in the 2d edition of the Encyclopedia of Nursing Research, middle range theory "is a basic, usable structure of ideas, less abstract than grand theory and more abstract than empirical generalizations or micro-range theoryÖ. Middle-range theories are developed and grown at the intersection of practice and research to provide guidance for everyday practice and scholarly research rooted in the discipline of nursing." In this revised and updated second edition, the authors will revise the eight theories that were examined in the first edition with published research and practice updates along with any changes in the basic concepts and models. Seven new theories will be added. Each theory is presented by the theorist in a consistent format: purpose of the theory; basic concepts; relationships among the concepts, the model; use of the theory in nursing research and/or practice; conclusions; references. Theories new to the second edition Symptom Management (Dodd et al.) Caring (Swanson) Embodied Language (Liehr et al.)

Psychology is both an applied and academic field that studies the human mental processes and behaviour. The present book comprehensively deals with the appropriate areas of Psychology to help the students of Nursing and other healthcare courses gain an insight of the subject. The text begins with the evolution and history of Psychology and its branches, and moves on to the methods adopted by the contemporary psychologists in mapping the human brain. It focuses on the applications of psychology in performance enhancement and self-help. Psychological aspects like perception, learning, emotion, aptitude and intelligence are further exemplified and elucidated in this book with the clinical problems associated with them. The book also deals with the common health problems associated with stress—the bane of modern existence—and provides solutions to cope with those problems. The modern day issues like lifestyle illness and attitudinal problems are also addressed in this book. In the second edition, a new chapter namely, ‘Importance and Impact of Psychology for Nursing Profession’ has been introduced, which facilitates the nurses to adapt to the changing demand of the profession seamlessly.

Reflecting current developments in nursing practice and the understanding of mental health disorders, this edition includes twelve additional chapters, placing more emphasis on specific groups such as children and young people, women, older people, asylum seekers, and refugees. Case studies include patients with anxiety, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder as well as victims of sexual abuse, those with an eating disorder, homeless patients, and those with dementia and autism.

This is an essential text for all psychiatric and mental health nurses at the diploma and degree level, as well as qualified mental health nurses seeking to update their knowledge.

As we watch another agonizing attempt to shift the future of healthcare in the United States, we are reminded of the longevity of this crisis, and how firmly entrenched we are in a system that doesn't work. Witches, Midwives, and Nurses, first published by the Feminist Press in 1973, is an essential book about the corruption of the medical establishment and its historic roots in witch hunters. In this new edition, Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English have written an entirely new chapter that delves into the current fascination with and controversies about witches, exposing our fears and fantasies. They build on their classic exposé on the demonization of women healers and the political and economic monopolization of medicine. This quick history brings us up-to-date, exploring today's changing attitudes toward childbirth, alternative medicine, and modern-day witches.
