There are a number of books about complementary therapies for nurses, but these mostly take a therapy-led approach. This new book, written by an experienced nurse, health visitor and teacher, uses a problem-based approach that relates to conditions presenting in everyday practice.

Childrens health, psychological and social needs are qualitatively and quantitatively different from those of adults and the author has for this reason addressed not only medical conditions but also psycho-social development problems.
Well-referenced and evidence-based, this book is an essential companion for all healthcare professionals who treat children and young adults.
