This innovative first volume of the Series possesses a variety of characteristics that distinguish it different from other publications on this topic, including the following:
- In the first place, it places an emphasis on the interpersonal, humanistic, and ecological perspectives and methods of P/MH nursing.
- Second, it places an emphasis on patient- and client-centered approaches, as well as user involvement in mental health services.
- In conclusion, this is the very first textbook on psychiatric and mental health nursing in Europe, and the majority of its authors are academics in the field of mental health from Europe. However, it does include contributions from researchers in the United States of America and Australia and New Zealand.
It takes an evidence-based or evidence-informed approach, with a primary concentration on clinical and practical difficulties, as well as theory and empirical discoveries. Each contribution outlines the most recent developments in psychiatric and mental health nursing in Europe. The goal is to disseminate this information to psychiatric and mental health nurses and the larger mental health care community around the world so that it can be put into practice. Because of this, the book will be the very first one of its kind to be published on European psychiatric mental health nursing in the 21st century.
