Summary

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" is a single text focusing exclusively on the examination's psychiatry topics, providing an organized and understandable review of material that the user presumably will have mastered but offering a practical means of reviewing that material and minimizing the need to consult multiple sources. It's 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 editors have provided a sufficiently detailed overview so that the book can serve as a primary source for psychiatry candidates. They have maintained a balance between succinctness and comprehensiveness while providing the proper emphasis on critical topics for study. The contents are arranged by topic to conform to coverage in the Examination. The first eleven chapters review basic sciences for psychiatric practice?functional neuropathology, genetics, immunology, and more?as well as such subjects 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, from cognitive disorders to anxiety to personality disorders, accompanied by chapters on the psychiatric interview, diagnostics, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and pain disorders.
