Description

Readers of the best-selling Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry, Seventh Edition—the seminal primer on the field—can now test their knowledge with this companion study guide.

With a format that replicates what medical students, psychiatric residents, and others might encounter in specialty certification exams, this guide is organized along the lines of DSM-5 and features detailed questions on topics that include

  • Diagnosis and classification
  • Interviewing and assessment
  • Neurobiology and genetics
  • All DSM-5 disorders
  • Legal issues
  • Psychotherapy
  • Somatic treatments

Each multiple-choice question is linked to specific pages in the Textbook for ease of reference and includes plausible distractors. The answer guide includes explanations not only of the correct responses but also of why the other options are incorrect.

Beyond mere rote memorization, the Study Guide to Introductory Psychiatry is designed to help learners truly assimilate and deeply encode the information in the Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry, Seventh Edition, so that they can recall it when it matters most—when speaking with the patients they treat.
