Study Guide to Psychosomatic Medicine is a question-and-answer companion that allows you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychosomatic Medicine, Second Edition. The Study Guide is made up of 271 questions divided into 41 individual quizzes of 5-10 questions each that correspond to chapters in the Textbook. 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 American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychosomatic Medicine: Psychiatric Care of the Medically III, Second Edition, again brings together a multinational group of distinguished contributors to address every aspect of psychiatric care in the medically ill. This book captures the diversity of the field, whose practitioners—scholars, physicians, and clinicians of varied backgrounds—represent a multiplicity of perspectives.
