Description

DSM-5 (R) Self-Exam Questions: Test Questions for the Diagnostic Criteria elucidates DSM-5 (R) through self-exam questions designed to test the reader's knowledge of the new edition's diagnostic criteria. Mental health professionals, ranging from clinicians and students to psychiatric nurses and social workers, will benefit from this substantive text's 300-plus questions. This book is a "must have" for anyone seeking to fully understand the changes brought about by the groundbreaking launch of DSM-5 (R). Some of the book's most beneficial features include:  Self-exam questions and cases designed to test the reader's knowledge of conceptual changes to DSM-5 (R) (e.g., autism spectrum disorder), specific changes to diagnoses (e.g., the integration of childhood disorders within main disorders), and diagnostic criteria (e.g., the diagnostic criteria for major depressive disorder and bipolar disorders). Questions about each diagnosis in DSM-5 (R), including the proposed diagnoses in Section III, which enable readers to teach themselves about new and potential future diagnoses. A contrast of DSM-5 (R) diagnoses with DSM-IV-TR (R) to assist readers in quickly learning about the changes in diagnostic classes and criteria. Short answers that explain the rationale for each correct answer (diagnostic criteria sets from DSM-5 (R) are included as appropriate, and readers are directed to DSM-5 (R) for further information). Question answers containing important information on diagnostic classifications, criteria sets, diagnoses, codes, and severity, dimension of diagnosis, and culture, age, and gender. Straightforward, practical, and illustrative, DSM-5 (R) Self-Exam Questions: Test Questions for the Diagnostic Criteria will successfully test and broaden the DSM-5 (R) knowledge of all mental health professionals.show more
