Study Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is a question-and-answer companion that allows you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Third Edition. The Study Guide is made up of approximately 295 questions divided into 49 individual quizzes of 5-8 questions each that correspond to chapters in the textbook. Questions are followed by an answer guide that references relevant text (including page numbers) in the textbook to allow quick access to needed information. Each answer is accompanied by a brief discussion that not only addresses the correct response but also explains why other responses are not correct.

The Study Guide's companion, Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Third Edition, provides practitioners the depth and breadth of knowledge covering topics including neurodevelopmental and other psychiatric disorders and disorders affecting somatic function; multiple approaches to psychosocial treatments; the principles of pediatric psychopharmacology and use of the medications; and special topics, including cultural and religious considerations, youth suicide, legal and ethical issues, and gender and sexual diversity.

Parikh's and Dulcan's Study Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, 3rd edition, is an excellent guide for residents, fellows, and practicing psychiatrists reviewing for Board examinations or Maintenance of Certification. Even if not reviewing for certification, the book is a great refresher and self-assessment resource for Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists. The questions are short and case-based. It contains up to date and evidence-based information on various topics, including treatments, that complement the textbook well. It is a good guide to add to your bookshelf.—Consuelo Cagande, M.D., DFAPA, DFAACAP, Chief, Division of Community Care and Wellness,Senior Associate Fellowship Program Director, Dept of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
