The Study Guide to DSM-5 was designed as a companion volume to DSM-5 to help students, residents, and clinicians understand and apply the 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 Guide possesses a multitude of features that will benefit both learner and instructor:

The structure of the Guide mirrors DSM-5's organization around diagnostic categories, and diagnostic criteria sets from DSM-5 are included.
Content and features are consistent across the chapters, with each including an introduction, learning objectives, pearls, in-depth discussion of the diagnosis, epidemiology tables, clinical vignettes, approach to the 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, guidelines are offered for resolving issues of diagnostic ambiguity.
Checklists, definitions, 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.
