Nursing Skills for Children and Young People’s Mental Health, (PDF) emphasizes those nursing skills that are truly valued and required by children and young people with mental health problems.

Whilst other ebooks have chiefly emphasized mental health conditions and treatments, this ebook moves away from this formulaic approach and considers what children and youth themselves need most from health professionals. It reflects why nursing skills are among the most precious values for patients. This stress on therapeutic relationships, establishing trust-based forms of nursing, and enabling children and young people to develop into healthy and resilient young adults has largely been ignored, despite the feedback from those who immediately need help but often struggle to find it, or are wary of looking for help and reluctant to engage.

This ebook focuses on the places where nurses face young people and seek to help them. It explores the role nurses play in specialist child and adolescent mental health settings (like in-patient and community, as psychotherapists, and on self-harm teams) and where paediatrics nurses work with disturbed young people (in pediatric wards, emergency departments,  and primary care). It also considers two particular areas, namely eating disorder services and consent-seeking, that could benefit from nursing skills that are presently undervalued but are in fact invaluable.

Its emphasis on those skills that nurses already have, but may not be consciously using, will make this ebook uniquely appealing to all nurses who work with children and young people with mental health problems, irrespective of the setting, and a vital guide for nursing students and experienced professionals alike.
