The field of psychiatry is evolving rapidly specifically in the areas of classification of many psychiatric disorders, psychopharmacology and psychotherapeutics. The new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: DSM-5 which was introduced in 2013 forms the basis of the new classification system in psychiatry. The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology is also in the process of phasing in DSM-5 criteria to the board examination, such that by 2017 the examination material will exclusively reflect the new manual. As psychiatric trainees and psychiatrists prepare for their certification and recertification examinations using the new classification system, a new board review textbook is imperative to address these changes in order to prepare them for the certification examinations as well as for their clinical practice. To help with this process we have compiled a list of 1000 questions and answers in psychiatry and neurology using the most current information available in the field and using the DSM 5 classification system. This book has been specifically written for the busy professional who does not have the time to access numerous resources necessary to prepare for professional examinations.
We all feel bad from time to time but how do we deal with these feelings? Do the ways we cope with emotional issues hurt us further or do they help us? Perhaps we need a new story. Over the years Dr. Bob Hoke, a psychiatrist, has created a series of therapeutic discussions devoted to “Emotional Repair”. Dr. Bob, in his “Emotional Repair Program” uses fictional stories to help us learn to repair our own emotions and deal with the non-fictional world. During animated conversation Dr. Bob shared his stories and their therapeutic context within the “Emotional Repair Program” with Sue Clancy, an artist, who wrote notes and illustrated the stories as Dr. Bob talked. Sue, with Dr. Bob’s encouragement, collected her notes and cartoon illustrations into this book. Dr. Bob’s Emotional Repair Program is based on the following assumptions: - People DO have the resources and strengths to resolve their complaints and create emotional growth. - Emotional repair does NOT require long-term therapy. - Practical results can be achieved in a short time. This First Aid Kit focuses on the immediately needed skills to quickly repair emotions and develop the inner resources to resolve emotional problems. The First Aid Kit is a series of fictional stories – and non-fiction cognitive behavior practices – which come with a strong warning: Keep this First Aid Kit to yourself! Resist the impulse to teach the practices in this book to anyone else! You live these practices first – let other people learn from your example! As the master said “Don’t try to teach a pig to sing, it wastes your time and irritates the pig.”

Presenting a vivid historical account of the contributions that black psychiatrists have made to American psychiatry, this important book documents the growth and influence of the group in tandem with the advancement of the field as a whole. It provides us with a deep appreciation for what these pioneers accomplished and the hurdles they overcame. Spurlock and the book's many distinguished contributors provide an overview of the history spanning generations and various areas of psychiatry. This volume documents early and contemporary pioneers and their contributions to modern psychiatry. Surveys of black psychiatrists in academia, child psychiatry, psychiatric research, forensic psychiatry, and psychoanalysis provide an enlightening view of their experiences. From a collection of descriptive essays, readers can step into the shoes of several pioneers and experience how they lived. These personal reflections provide enormous insight into the history of American psychiatry. Finally, the book addresses current mental health issues affecting African Americans as well as the barriers black psychiatrists face and the coping mechanisms they use. This work should be of particular interest to psychiatry students or residents and to anyone interested in the history of American psychiatry. It discusses the widening opportunities for professional growth for black psychiatrists and the important place black psychiatrists have reached in the present mental health arena.
