    Special Issue on Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Nursing


    Challenges to the profession of child and adolescent mental health-psychiatric nursing, and choices available to address these challenges, are examined. The challenges stem from the large numbers of children in need of mental health services, the many risk factors to which children and families are exposed, and society's inadequate responses. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of child and adolescent psychiatric nursing.

    • Factors impacting the delivery of care to children and adolescents by APNs
    • Developmental concerns and toxic environments
    • Cultural congruence especially in the context of sensitive and respectful care
