Psychology and Psychological Medicine for Nurses provides a survey of psychology and psychological medicine specifically tailored for the use of nurses who will take the examinations for the Certificate of General Nursing of the General Nursing Council for England and Wales. The text covers topics on the development of human behavior or how the upbringing of children can influence their behavior when they become adults; care of mentally ill patients; and the bearing of childhood experience on the behavior of adults when they are ill. Nursing students will find the book a very good source of information and insight.
