The Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination is the first study guide that reflects the current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-5(R). Authors from the full career spectrum medical students, fellows, and junior and senior faculty collaborated in the development and refinement of this study guide, a monumental task undertaken and executed with professional seriousness and academic rigor. The selection of topics follows the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certification Examination in Psychiatry 2015 Content Blueprint, thoroughly preparing and familiarizing readers with both the subject matter and test experience. Content for the approximately 400 questions contained in the study guide was culled from numerous, readily available American Psychiatric Publishing texts, and each multiple choice question is followed by explanations for both the correct and incorrect options, with the appropriate citations for further study. Although not the only resource readers should consult when preparing for the test, the Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination is surely the best, most up-to-date tool available, and psychiatrists taking either the initial certification or the 10-year recertification examination will find it invaluable.

Substantially revised to include a wealth of new material, the second edition of this highly acclaimed work provides a concise, coherent introduction that brings structure to an increasingly fragmented and amorphous discipline. Paul R. McHugh and Phillip R. Slavney offer an approach that emphasizes psychiatry's unifying concepts while accommodating its diversity. Recognizing that there may never be a single, all-encompassing theory, the book distills psychiatric practice into four explanatory methods: diseases, dimensions of personality, goal-directed behaviors, and life stories. These perspectives, argue the authors, underlie the principles and practice of all psychiatry. With an understanding of these fundamental methods, readers will be equipped to organize and evaluate psychiatric information and to develop a confident approach to practice and research.
