Study Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is made up of 287 questions divided into 56 individual quizzes of 5-10 questions each that correspond to chapters in The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Third Edition. 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 not only addresses the correct response but also explains why other responses are not correct. The Study Guide's companion, the third edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, both scholarly and practical, continues the tradition of integrating clinical wisdom and scientific research to improve patient care and advocacy for children and families. Comprehensive, yet not so lengthy that it would discourage a resident in training or a busy practitioner looking for an update, this well-organized reference focuses on clinical issues (based on empirical research) and is thus extremely practical for everyday use.
Written by 88 distinguished experts, each chapter in this informative work presents a summary of a core topic, blending clinical experience with evidence-based practices in assessment and treatment. For the third edition, the textbook has been revised and updated throughout to keep pace with accelerating progress in research on developmental psychopathology. Purchase the online version of the Study Guide at and receive instant scoring and CME credits. Please note that scoring of the exam and CME credit are available only if you purchase the online version.
