Publisher: American Psychiatric Pub
Study Guide to Psychiatry is a question-and-answer companion that allows you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry, Sixth Edition. The Study Guide is made up of approximately 500 questions divided into 38 individual quizzes of 10--20 questions each that correspond to the chapters in the Textbook. Questions are followed by an Answer Guide that references relevant text (including the page number) in the Textbook to allow quick access to important information. Each answer is accompanied by a discussion that addresses the correct response and also (when appropriate) explains why other responses are not correct. The Study Guide's companion, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry, Sixth Edition, has been meticulously revised to maintain its preeminence as an accessible and authoritative training reference and clinical compendium. The first comprehensive psychiatry textbook to integrate the new DSM-5® criteria, this acclaimed gold standard is the definitive guide for a new era in psychiatric education and practice.
The Study Guide to DSM-5® is an indispensable instructional supplement to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition. The Study Guide is intended to assist readers in understanding diagnostic criteria and concepts from DSM-5®, as well as how to apply them. Learning objectives introduce each group of chapters to hone critical insights into diagnosis. Foundational concepts of diagnosis are amplified with case vignettes, discussion questions, and recommended reading to enrich knowledge and practice. The gem of this volume, diagnostic classes are made straightforward with overview narratives, summary discussions, and diagnostic pearls. In each diagnostic class, the reader will find in-depth sections for key diagnoses, including approach to the diagnosis, getting the history, tips for clarifying the diagnosis, case vignettes, and differential diagnosis. A self-assessment section for each diagnostic class includes a checklist of key concepts, discussion questions, case-based question sets, and short-answer questions and answers to help readers comprehend diagnoses as they naturally occur in multidimensional, clinically complex scenarios. Lastly, an overview of diagnostic questions that cover material across the Study Guide and DSM-5® provides additional testing of knowledge for the astute learner. The Study Guide to DSM-5® is written by recognized leaders in academic psychiatry who provide their expertise in helping the reader to understand how criteria, as words in a manual, come together in the real-life experience of patients. Experts across clinical areas and learners were engaged to help ensure attunement to learner concerns in the book's development. Teachers and students of psychiatry, psychology, social work, medical schools, and residency programs will benefit from this interesting and enormously instructive companion volume.
Psychiatrists and residents are faced with the important -- but what may feel overwhelming -- task of refreshing their knowledge of the whole of psychiatric practice, typically while remaining engaged in full-time clinical activity. Psychiatrists will find the logical structure, substantive questions, and thorough explanations provided by the Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination to be as reassuring as they are educational. Although readers are advised to consult a range of resources in preparation for the examination, this guide is indispensable. It is the first and only guide to reflect the revisions contained in DSM-5®, and it will ably assume a primary role in the study and review process. The guide is designed for maximum usefulness, with specific features and attributes to support knowledge recall and successful examination performance. * The authors are from a cross-section of accomplished students, fellows, and junior and senior faculty, all of whom have faced or will face the board examination and who understand its importance to the profession.* Topics were determined by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certification Examination in Psychiatry 2015 Content Blueprint.* The approximately 400 questions were formulated from information extracted from widely available American Psychiatric Publishing textbooks and accurately reflect the accepted psychiatric knowledge base.* Each multiple choice question is followed by an explanation of why the correct answer is correct and the others are incorrect, and every question and explanation is referenced, directing the reader to the primary material for more in-depth learning and study.* The volume was designed as a study guide for both the initial psychiatry board examination and the recertification examination. The process of working through the study guide will allow the reader to identify areas of strength and weakness, initiate further study, and test and retest knowledge, ultimately preparing for the examination's rigors. Only the Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination offers support for the new, DSM-5® -- compatible examination, and that alone renders it essential.

Visual Guides and More for Learning to Use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV-TR)
Author: Carlton E. Munson
Provides information on the DSM-IV system, for example, how to use the Culture-Bound syndromes in order to produce a Cultural Formulation. Other features include coverage of the major classes of DSM-IV disorders, concise summaries of each class of disorder, visual aids, and summaries of treatments. The physical book is poorly made--a book block poorly pasted into a too-small case that caused our review copy to come apart at the spine. The wise buyer will avoid bibliochiropracty and save money by purchasing the paperback and a decent case to put it in. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR
