This new, thoroughly revised edition of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry for the Specialty Board Review offers updated information, along with the most recent references and knowledge reflected in those changes. The authors especially incorporate new information and changes from DSM-5. Both general and child/adolescent psychiatrists will find this new edition invaluable, not only as a guide for preparing for their first successful Board examination, but also as a review in preparing for important re-certification exams. The book includes hundreds of multiple-choice questions, modeled after the types of questions on the actual boards. This challenging update, with new references and more relevant questions, will help readers to learn new information and be better prepared for their board examinations. Because the authors rewrote the majority of questions to cover a broader knowledge base, readers may find it useful to use the 4th edition as a companion book of the 3rd edition.
"The fourth edition of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry for the Specialty Board Review is a must-have for child and adolescent psychiatrists and general psychiatrists who are preparing for certification or recertification exams. This book is also a useful tool for medical students and residents preparing for examinations and is an excellent method of self-study for those who simply wish to ensure their knowledge is up to date. The questions and detailed explanations of the answers, which include references from leading textbooks, provide a comprehensive review of the entire field. The book has been updated to include DSM-5, as well as new knowledge in genetics, neurobiology, and psychopharmacology." --Lois Flaherty, MD, Lecturer on Psychiatry, Harvard University and Editor-in-chief, Adolescent Psychiatry
"This book presents a practical and well-organized approach to preparing for the boards exam in child and adolescent psychiatry, with an emphasis on changes brought about in diagnostic classification by the publication of DSM-5 and relevant new knowledge from brain imaging and clinical neuroscience. Multiple-choice questions are organized by topic. Part I includes 16 chapters covering normal development, diagnostic categories, treatments and special issues. Part II includes five case problems that test knowledge of assessment, differential diagnosis, formulation and treatment planning. The cases are thoughtfully presented and are consistent with the new board’s format." -- --William M. McMahon, MD, Professor & Chairman, Department of Psychiatry, University of Utah School of Medicine
