Since publication of the second edition of Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry, there has been a tremendous influx of fresh information relevant to the practice of psychiatry. The sheer scope of this new material places an even greater burden on today's examinees, who are expected to be familiar with both older and newer treatments. This unique and proven reference provides exactly what every candidate needs to achieve success on the rigorous American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) oral examination. Incorporating the updated diagnoses reflected in DSM-IV-TR and presenting pertinent clinical information on the assessment and treatment of the kinds of patients most likely to be encountered during the oral boards in psychiatry, this new edition retains its predecessor's easy-to-use chapter format and breakthrough perspective. The author emphasizes that candidates are being tested not on their proficiency in making a single accurate diagnosis but rather on their ability to formulate a differential diagnosis that is, on their reasoning skills and their ability to recognize, during even a short patient interview, that many diagnoses are possible. And knowledge alone is not enough; the examinee also must demonstrate insight by showing empathy for the patient and by developing a collegial relationship with the examiners. The ABPN requires psychiatrists to pass a recertification examination every 10 years. In addition to its utility in preparation for the oral boards, this third edition of the Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry represents an excellent review text for clinicians facing the recertification examination. This indispensable study guide offers a distinct advantage to the busy professional by bringing together in one compact volume both the knowledge and the insights so essential to success on these crucial examinations. By combining its distinct advantage over lengthier psychiatry textbooks and references with both the knowledge and the insight so essential to success on this crucial exam, this compact volume proves once again that it is, quite simply, the definitive study guide for all oral board examination candidates.
