The oral boards are a professional milestone that often feel like a millstone around the necks of intimidated candidates, as they survey the mountains of material they are expected to have mastered. "The Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry" removes the burden of reviewing multiple texts and journals by compiling all the pertinent clinical information candidates must know to prepare for the exam into one concise, yet comprehensive guide. Everything that may be asked by the examiners is contained in this volume. Organized by class of disorder, the book takes the reader through the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria, clinical issues, etiology, prognosis, differential diagnosis and treatment for each type. It also provides indispensable insight into the clinical interview which is the core of the examination, emphasizing the importance of empathy, establishing rapport, and building trust with the patient. Finally, the author acknowledges and compensates for the limitations candidates may face due to the clinical setting in which they practice by focusing on the types of patients most likely to present for the oral boards. "The Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry" has reached the fourth edition for good reason: It is the most user-friendly, comprehensive, and effective tool on the market.

Book Description American Psychiatric Association Publishing, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. 4th Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry has been a trusted and indispensable resource for a decade and this new, 4th edition continues the tradition of currency, relevancy, and rigor. To pass the oral boards in psychiatry, a candidate must possess clinical knowledge that is both broad and deep, something that is difficult to attain for a clinician who is exposed, in daily practice, to a limited number of patients with a limited range of disorders. However, the oral boards are a test of clinical, not theoretical, knowledge, and so the candidate seeking to prepare thoroughly is faced with the critical challenge of mastering the patient interview, contextualizing the findings, and providing a differential diagnosis for disorders which he or she may not have encountered professionally. This book is designed to provide practical clinical information regarding the assessment and treatment of the types of patients most likely to present for the oral boards. Its approach is both encyclopedic and succinct, with an insider s view of what the candidate can expect.  Organization is by class of disorder and each section addresses, at a minimum, the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria, clinical issues, etiology, prognosis, differential diagnosis and treatment -- all the pertinent clinical information candidates should know so they will be prepared when asked by the examiners. The author stresses the necessity for thorough preparation and care in the formulation of responses, reflecting the knowledge that if a candidate mentions a particular medication, for example, he or she should expect to be questioned about its indications, dosing information, therapeutic benefits, and potential side effects. Less tangible factors are also discussed, such as demonstrating empathy for the patient, effective interview technique, and the ability to establish rapport. An abundance of tables and figures make complex information easy to understand, and the author has supplied algorithms for treatment protocols to help candidates whose experience with a particular patient group is limited. The oral examination is a difficult and intimidating event that looms large in the clinician s professional development. However, the Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry both simplifies and demystifies the process by compiling and organizing all the material the candidate requires to prepare for the exam. Any candidate willing to invest the time and effort to study this comprehensive guide will surely achieve success. Seller Inventory # AAR9781585624126
