Neuropsychology of Malingering Casebook Hardback
Edited by Joel E. (Independent Practice, Morristown, NJ, USA) Morgan, Jerry J. (Evanston Northwestern Healthcare, Illinois, USA) Sweet
Clinical neuropsychologists frequently evaluate individuals within a forensic context, and therefore must address questions regarding the possible presence of reduced effort, response bias and/or malingering.
This volume offers a wide range of instructive real-world case examples involving the complex differential diagnosis where symptom exaggeration and/or malingering cloud the picture. Written by expert forensic neuropsychologists, the scenarios described provide informed, empirically-based and scientifically-derived opinions on the topic.
Issues related to malingering, such as response bias and insufficient effort, are discussed thoroughly with regard to a large number of clinical conditions and assessment instruments.
Test data and non-test information are considered and integrated by the numerous experts. Expert guidance for clinicians who must address the issue of malingering is provided in a straightforward and well-organized format.
To date, there has not been a comparable collection of rich case material relevant to forensic practice in clinical neuropsychology.
