"Dr. Wheeler has skillfully crafted a text that covers basic psychiatric principles and skills from developing a therapeutic relationship and assessing and diagnosing the client to providing evidence-based psychotherapy for a variety of patient populations... This text is an excellent primer for teaching therapy skills and, although targeting graduate psychiatric nursing students, would prove equally valuable for students of any mental health discipline. It is also a resource for experienced clinicians wanting to expand their understanding of trauma and how adaptive information processing might be used as an organizing framework for all psychotherapy."
--Linda Mabey, Journal of EMDR Practice and Research

"Lays out a holistic paradigm for advanced psychiatric nursing (APN) practice by drawing upon a neuroscience of information processing, human development, attachment theory, and trauma. . . (and) explains the essentials of psychotherapy by melding principles underlying the therapeutic alliance, adaptive information processing (AIP), change, and a hierarchically arranged treatment format that fosters healing through the resolution of dysfunctional memory this important text holds true to the historical basis for psychiatric nursing being organized around phases and principles of the nurse-patient relationship."
Margaret England, PhD, RN, CNS, Perspectives in Psychiatric Care

"Wheeler offers the field a scholarly training manual. . . grounded in Shapiro's (2001) adaptive information processing paradigm . . .(where) the brain is viewed as an information processing system with innate self-healing mechanisms that regulate its internal environment to survive and to maintain a stable, constant condition through dynamic regulation."
