Research output: Book/ReportEdited Bookpeer-review


This is the 2nd edition of the widely acclaimed and popular textbook. As something new in the 2nd edition, all stakeholders have participated in the creation of the book. This applies to psychiatric users, nursing students, nurses, teachers and researchers, who together have agreed on the book's overall content and structure, just as the book's chapters have been written and edited jointly.

The book describes important topics in psychiatric nursing, and it contains thorough introductions to the practices we expect nurses to know and master. This applies to e.g. deescalation and mental first aid, but also more specialized topics such as. environmental therapy and psychosocial health pedagogy. The book also contains introductions to the most important theories and models in psychiatric nursing, e.g. peer support, The Tidal Model and Open Dialogue.

Psychiatric nursing is written for all nurses who work with people with mental illness. It is an indispensable basic book for nursing students in the basic education, both in a theoretical and clinical context, and it is obvious in the special education in psychiatric nursing. The book is also extremely relevant for experienced clinicians and nurses who need updated knowledge and insight into new trends such as. trauma-conscious approach and resonance.
