Overview

The American Psychiatric Publishing Board Review Guide for Psychiatry by James A. Bourgeois

Little occasions cause as much anxiety in the clinician as the prospect of taking the examination for board certification. Psychiatrists and psychiatry residents poised to take the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Examination in Psychiatry (ABPNE) are faced with the overwhelming task of refreshing their knowledge of the whole of psychiatric practice, typically while engaged full-time in a clinical setting. That's why The American Psychiatric Publishing Board Review Guide for Psychiatry is such a valuable tool: In 39 concise, condensed, yet comprehensive chapters, this guide focuses the professional on the topics they must know not just to pass but to excel on the ABPNE.

Drawing on the very latest research and practice as reflected in The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, and their Essentials editions, the guide first takes readers through the basic sciences that undergird the discipline (e.g., neuroanatomy, genetics, and epidemiology) and then leads them through diagnostic topics (e.g., neuroimaging, laboratory testing, and the neuropsychological examination), before arriving at the psychiatric disorders (e.g., dissociative disorders, mood disorders, and schizophrenia) and, ultimately, the full spectrum of treatment options (e.g., cognitive therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and psychopharmacology). The book's many positive features include the following: • Its organization mirrors both clinical practice and the content of the ABPN itself, allowing readers to structure their study and review efficiently, as well as preparing them for an exam-taking experience.• Self-evaluation is integrated into the guide with the inclusion of two complete practice examinations, which provide the opportunity to assess learning and get used to the test-taking experience. Each exam is followed by an answer guide. • Categories employed are consistent with the DSM-IV-TR classification.• Quick-reference tables that summarize diagnostic criteria for specific psychiatric disorders are especially useful and abundant.

As easy to use as it is authoritative, The American Psychiatric Publishing Board Review Guide for Psychiatry provides the working clinician with an indispensable, single-volume source for success on the ABPN.
