This bestselling, comprehensive assessment guide has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest changes in the rapidly maturing field of clinical neuropsychology.
This third edition expertly leads neuropsychologists and trainees through the complicated process of assessing, diagnosing, and treating an enormous range of neurologic, neuropsychological, psychiatric, and behavioral disorders and syndromes. New chapters in this edition cover emerging areas such as cultural neuropsychology and somatic disorders, and emphasize newly discovered links between drug abuse and impulse control disorders, while diagnostic information has been updated throughout to reflect the newest DSM-5 criteria. Readers will also gain access to a cache of tools and supplementary material on the APA website, including videos of assessment techniques, audio samples of language deficiencies, and a wealth of diagrams and images that draw upon the latest brain imaging technologies. It is appropriate for neuropsychologists across all health care settings - from emergency rooms, oncology departments, and infectious disease programs, in cardiology, neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry departments.
