The Study Guide to DSM-5
is an indispensable instructional supplement to DSM-5
to help teachers and students of psychology, psychiatry, social work, medical schools, and residency programs understand and apply diagnostic criteria and key clinical concepts through a variety of learning tools. The Study Guide
can stand alone as a training supplement to DSM-5
or be paired with Clinical Cases
as comprehensive instruction for understanding and applying DSM-5
The Study Guide possesses a multitude of features that will benefit both learner and instructor:
- Content and features are consistent across the chapters, with each including an introduction, learning objectives, pearls, in-depth discussion of a diagnosis, epidemiology tables, clinical vignettes, approach to a diagnosis, getting a history, self-assessment questions and answers, and recommended readings.
- Key clinical vignettes exemplify diagnostic criteria while reflecting the complexity of real-life scenarios. In addition, examples are offered to help readers appreciate diagnostic variations and ambiguities.
- Checklists, discussion points, and questions for self-assessment are located at key points throughout the guide, allowing readers to test their understanding of DSM-5 and helping teachers to focus on the most critical issues.
Engagingly written, the Study Guide to DSM-5 introduces learners to DSM-5 and provides them with the tools they need to fully understand and deftly apply DSM-5 concepts and criteria.
