Now in its second edition, An Introduction to Psychology for Health Carers provides an accessible grounding for all nursing and health care students who have little previous experience of studying psychology, but who within their first year courses need to quickly understand how psychological research and theory is invaluable in interpreting, explaining and actively influencing clinical practice. As a discipline, Psychology makes an important contribution to health care practitioners' understanding of health and health promotion, treatment, stress, pain, emotion, bereavement and loss. This engaging text introduces basic psychological concepts and techniques and applies them directly to nursing, encouraging all health care students to make the most of their experiences in the practice environment, to learn from these, and to become a reflective, psychologically-informed practitioner. Julia Russell is a lecturer in the Division of Psychology at Glyndwr University and the Head of Psychology at the Queen's School in Cheshire.
