Bhatia and Craig’s Elements of Psychology and Mental Hygiene for Nurses in India by B D Bhatia and Margaretta Craig was one the first books to document the psychological perspective of nursing. Since it was first published, in 1958, the book has been revised thrice to meet the requirements of the 21st century nurse. The fourth edition of the book covers a wide range contemporary topics and methods of psychology. A new chapter on Interpersonal Relationships and Communication has been addedto help nurses develop better interpersonal skills, which is the need of the hour in this era of globalisation. The fourth edition is packed with attractive features like anecdotal critical thinking exercises, highlighted sections to illustrate the relevance of each topic to nursing and a fresh new look to aid not only the learning of this subject but also the application of psychology to all walks of professional as well as personal life.
