Description

Study Guide to The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychosomatic Medicine is a question-and-answer companion that allows you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through the Textbook. The Study Guide is made up of 234 questions divided into 40 individual quizzes of 5-10 questions each that correspond to chapters in The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychosomatic Medicine. Questions are followed by an Answer Guide that references relevant text (including the page number) in the Textbook to allow quick access to needed information. Each answer is accompanied by a discussion that addresses not only the correct response but also explains why other responses are not correct. The Study Guide's companion, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychosomatic Medicine, edited by James L. Levenson, M.D., covers all the major topics in psychosomatic medicine, including general principles in evaluation and management, psychiatric symptoms and disorders in the medically ill, issues within each medical specialty and subspecialty, and psychiatric treatments in the medically ill. Meticulously researched, clearly written, and designed for ease of use, the comprehensive and scholarly Textbook brings together the body of knowledge and skills that defines the subspecialty of Psychosomatic Medicine.

Review quote

"Particularly useful in this study guide is the fact that in the review and answers section the entire questions and choices are repeated, which thus eliminates the need to flip back and forth from the questions to the answers sections."-- "Jose R. Maldonado, PsycCritiques", "January 2006"show more
