Overview

Study Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is made up of 287 questions divided into 56 individual quizzes of 5-10 questions each that correspond to chapters in The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Third Edition. 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, the third edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, both scholarly and practical, continues the tradition of integrating clinical wisdom and scientific research to improve patient care and advocacy for children and families. Comprehensive, yet not so lengthy that it would discourage a resident in training or a busy practitioner looking for an update, this well-organized reference focuses on clinical issues (based on empirical research) and is thus extremely practical for everyday use. Written by 88 distinguished experts, each chapter in this informative work presents a summary of a core topic, blending clinical experience with evidence-based practices in assessment and treatment. For the third edition, the textbook has been revised and updated throughout to keep pace with accelerating progress in research on developmental psychopathology.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amer Smajkic, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book consists of 287 multiple choice questions and answers designed to parallel the topics and degree of difficulty found on the child and adolescent psychiatry board exams. The book is organized in 56 individual sections of 5-10 questions that are followed by detailed answer guide.
Purpose: The book is designed to provide a comprehensive and convenient instrument for self-assessment and review of child and adolescent psychiatry.
Audience: The book will prove useful to medical students, general psychiatry residents, child psychiatry residents, and child and adolescent psychiatrists as preparation for the in-service or board exams. The authors, who have experience in both clinical child psychiatry and medical student education, are credible authorities.
Features: Each question is accompanied by an answer, containing useful information about the correct answer as well as information about the other, incorrect choices. This allows the reader to cover multiple study points with each question. The chapters are organized by categories that correspond to chapters in The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, 3rd edition.
Assessment: This is a very useful book for general psychiatry residents, child and adolescent psychiatry residents, and child and adolescent psychiatrists. It covers a broad range of relevant topics in psychiatry in a convenient format. This new edition is warranted because the child psychiatry field continues to grow and there is a demand for the most current information provided in multiple choice format.
