Study Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is a question-and-answer companion that allows you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through Dulcan’s Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Second Edition. The Study Guide is made up of approximately 290 questions divided into 49 individual quizzes of 5-8 questions each that correspond to chapters in the textbook. Questions are followed by an answer guide that references relevant text (including page numbers) 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, Dulcan’s Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Second Edition, has been thoroughly updated to reflect significant changes to psychiatric nomenclature and criteria in DSM-5. This new edition prunes older content while distilling and incorporating clinically relevant findings. Reorganized chapters feature tables of selected diagnostic criteria from the DSM-5 for quick reference.
