Overview

"Incorporating the updated diagnoses reflected in DSM-IV-TR and presenting pertinent clinical information on the assessment and treatment of the kinds of patients most likely to be encountered during the oral boards in psychiatry, this new edition retains its predecessor's easy-to-use chapter format and breakthrough perspective. The author emphasizes that candidates are being tested not on their proficiency in making a single accurate diagnosis but rather on their ability to formulate a differential diagnosis - that is, on their reasoning skills and their ability to recognize, during even a short patient interview, that many diagnoses are possible. And knowledge alone is not enough; the examinee also must demonstrate insight by showing empathy for the patient and by developing a collegial relationship with the examiners." The ABPN requires psychiatrists to pass a recertification examination every 10 years. In addition to its utility in preparation for the oral boards, this third edition of Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry represents an excellent review text for clinicians facing the recertification examination. This indispensable study guide offers a distinct advantage to the busy professional by bringing together in one compact volume both the knowledge and the insights so essential to success on these crucial examinations.
