  • The Influence of Psychological Trauma in Nursing

    As nurses know firsthand, the impact of psychological trauma is not limited to those who experience it. Others—including nurses and caregivers—are indirectly affected. In healthcare, patients’ psychological trauma may manifest in odd, uncomfortable, or confusing behaviors. Nurses and healthcare workers must recognize that patients may be feeling unsafe or struggling with low self–esteem, anxiety, grief, loneliness, or depression born from trauma. As nurses listen to, empathize with, and sometimes grieve with the people they care for, they need to comprehend the “why” behind these feelings and actions.

    The Influence of Psychological Trauma in Nursing helps nurses gain awareness and knowledge about trauma and recovery so they can heal and bring holistic healing to others. Authors Karen J. Foli and John R. Thompson provide a primer on psychological trauma, helping readers identify and understand the common forms of trauma in society. Filled with examples, tools, assessments, and learning objectives, this book helps nurses move forward as trauma–informed caregivers.

  • Rethinking Your Unit Council Structure

    Rapid change is constant in the healthcare industry, leaving hospitals—and the units within—to react and adapt.

    • Determine your unit’s immediate needs
    • Empower team members to identify problems and initiate solutions
    • Transcend elements of traditional unit council structures that hinder progress
    • Improve staff engagement and satisfaction

    This book provides a solutions-based approach to determining and addressing the unique needs of your unit, hospital, or system so that your change initiatives can succeed.
