This respected resource has earned widespread critical acclaim for its strong emphasis on communication theory.

Abundant experiential exercises allow readers to build their communication skills. This edition features a new chapter on Critical Thinking: Values and Ethics in Nurse-Client Relationships, and an updated chapter on Professional Documentation that addresses computerized client record-keeping, reimbursement coding, and computerized tracking systems. It also includes additional content on health promotion and change theory and a greater focus on community-based communication.
