The Advances in Psychiatric Treatment is a good guide to college thinking so look at the ones around 4-6/12 ago when they were setting the papers. These include a long series on psychotherapy (IPT/CBT/DBT etc) and stuff on stigma (useful to learn as you can put it in almost any essay for PC points). There has been a lot written also about the new community team models eg ACT, home treatment, early intervention which would make a good essay topic as would fit the criteria of covering more than one area in psychiatry. Otherwise be guided by topics at Guidlford and MAnchester- between them have got most of the recent years some where near right.

I sat the exam last time round. The other things I considered were

1. Capacity/consent - children vs adults, testamentary capacity

2. Transcultural- eg. whether we should have specialist services for minority groups

3. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - distinction between physical and mental illness

as well as stigma/Impact of Dementia.

I used the APT, BJP and Psychiatric Bulletin to generate topics of interest.

Best of luck!!
