Overview

Study Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is a question-and-answer companion that allows you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. The Study Guide is made up of 332 questions divided into 65 individual quizzes of 5-10 questions each that correspond to 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 needed information. Each answer is accompanied by a discussion that not only addresses the correct response but also explains why other responses are not correct.

The Study Guide's companion, Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive text in child and adolescent psychiatry as presented by more than 110 contributors, with 56 of the 65 chapters featuring new lead authors. Both the organization of the original text and the structure of the chapters have been overhauled to highlight what we now know about evidence-based practices in assessment and treatment, while preserving clinical wisdom.
