Brings basic concepts in psychology and sociology to life for nursing students . I particularly liked the critical approach to mental health and the inclusion of new perspectives such as the The Power, Threat, Meaning Framework
Very useful book for the BSc nursing students.

A fantastic text which applies theoretical concepts to clear and appropriate examples of practice - helping the reader to see the relevance of the social sciences to the nursing profession. A must read for nursing students.
