Study Guide to Clinical Psychopharmacology is a question-and-answer companion that allows you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through the corresponding textbook. The Study Guide is made up of 368 questions divided into 65 individual quizzes of 5-10 questions each that correspond to chapters in The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychopharmacology, 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 Psychopharmacology, covers four major sections: Principles of Psychopharmacology, which provides the necessary background in neurobiology and pharmacology; Classes of Psychiatric Treatment, which presents information by classes of drugs; Clinical Psychobiology and Psychiatric Syndromes, which reviews the data on the biological underpinnings of specific disorders for a better understanding of current psychopharmacological approaches; and Psychopharmacological Treatment, which provides specific information about drug selection and their prescription.
