Discussing Child and Adolescent Mental Health Nursing by Dean-David Holyoake
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


There appears to be a paucity of books directed towards child and adolescent mental health nursing and those on the market are centred around a positivist, epistemological perspective, which more often renders a medical view of the problems encountered by the child, the family and the practitioner. This book does not attempt to provide answers to the multiplicity of problems encountered by service users and practioners of child and adolescent mental health, rather, by utilising a post-modernist paradigm, the authors attempt, through dialogue, to further critically appraise the theoretical views and practical applications most widely used by nurses within the specialism.
