This one-of-a-kind resource covers both basic and clinical sciences for psychiatrists and psychiatry residents preparing for Part 1 of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Examination in Psychiatry. The American Psychiatric Publishing Board Prep and Review Guide for Psychiatry offers a practical refresher on essential material, minimizing the need to consult multiple sources. It is an authoritative work that can be used with confidence, drawing on the latest editions of the APPI Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry, the APPI Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, and their " Essentials" editions.
The book is arranged in topical order to conform to the examination's coverage. The first 11 chapters review basic sciences as well as topics such as psychological assessment, cultural psychiatry, and legal issues. Subsequent chapters address the entire gamut of clinical syndromes along categories consistent with DSM-IV-TR classification, accompanied by chapters on the psychiatric interview, diagnostics, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and pain disorders. Quick-reference tables summarize diagnostic criteria for psychiatric disorders. Multiple-choice study questions appear at the end of each chapter, with annotated answers provided at the back of the book.
