Overview

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, Fifth Edition. The Study Guide is made up of 307 questions divided into 44 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 Psychiatry, Fifth Edition has been meticulously revised to maintain its preeminence as an accessible and authoritative educational reference and clinical compendium. More than 100 contributors summarize the latest developments in psychiatry, with new chapters on cellular and molecular biology; neuroanatomy; human sexuality and sexual dysfunctions; nonpharmacological somatic treatments; supportive psychotherapy; combined psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy; treatment of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender patients; and assessment of dangerousness. Each chapter ends with 5-10 key points, 5-10 recommended readings, and helpful Web sites for clinicians, patients, and family members.
