A man who has taught psychiatry to nurses for twenty years has published this book to accomplish four goals: (1) to help the student develop a dynamic interest in psychiatry; (2) to make psychiatry more easily understood; (3) to make the teaching of psychiatry practical, and (4) to permit flexible use of the test. The book is divided into four parts, namely, the introductions, medical psychology, psychiatry and mental hygiene. The textual matter is clearly written and easily understood. This book is recommended for the use of the student nurse and the psychiatric social service worker.
