"FOCUS Psychiatry Review, Volume 2" contains 400 new board-type multiple-choice questions from the annual "FOCUS Self-Assessment Examinations" that can help psychiatrists prepare for examinations and identify areas for further study. These new questions, developed by the FOCUS self-assessment board, are consistent in form and process with the questions used by high-stakes examinations. They cover important clinical areas of psychiatric practice and closely follow the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) outline of topics for the recertification examination in psychiatry. "The FOCUS Psychiatry Review, Volume 2" is designed to test current knowledge and its clinical application. The workbook is flexible in format, allowing readers to use the educational approach that works best for them. Readers can review resource materials prior to answering questions, or they can use the workbook to review the references listed in the critiques after scoring test sections. The workbook will be useful for anyone committed to lifelong learning in the field - psychiatric residents, practicing psychiatrists, and psychiatrists preparing for examinations. APA is accredited by ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. APA designates this educational activity for a maximum of 50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits[trademark].
