Overview

Study Guide to Forensic 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 Forensic Psychiatry, Second Edition. The Study Guide is made up of 139 questions divided into 23 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, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Forensic Psychiatry, Second Edition is a versatile resource that is valuable not only for practicing psychiatrists (both the general clinician and the forensic specialist) but also for psychiatric residents, those enrolled in forensic fellowship programs, and other mental health professionals. Organized around case examples and featuring an index of legal cases, the book provides the context clinicians require to navigate the legal system, understand their role as expert witnesses, and practice professionally and ethically.
