Neuropsychology in the Courtroom
This volume brings together leading neuropsychologists to shed light on the nuts and bolts of forensic practice. An array of adult and child cases are presented, involving such conditions as traumatic brain injury, multiple chemical sensitivity, cerebral anoxia, and electrical injury. Contributors show how they go about reviewing reports and depositions in a particular case, providing fine-grained analysis of the opinions and conclusions of the examiner. Issues addressed in detail include the selection of tests, appropriate use of normative samples, and errors in scoring and interpretation. Unique in providing multiple perspectives on each case, the book identifies common clinical and professional pitfalls and how to avoid them.
Forensic Neuropsychology Casebook
This unique compendium of cases from experienced neuropsychologists offers a window into the complexities of conducting forensic assessments and serving as an expert witness. Covering both the civil and criminal arenas, the reader learns of evidence-based procedures for evaluating premorbid functioning, competency, malingering, and other forensic issues. Translating science to practice, the casebook yields valuable insights on navigating the twists and turns of the legal system.
The Practice of Clinical Neuropsychology
This volume is a contemporary survey of practice-related issues in clinical neuropsychology in the United States. Section 1 includes chapters on topics relevant to practitioners in clinical neuropsychology such as managed care, practice trends, business aspects of practice, training and credentialing, internet resources for practice, and research in the private practice setting. Section 2 provides narrative descriptions of a range of different practice settings. Authors give firsthand descriptions of their settings, billing and coding practices, how they interface with colleagues and referral sources, and other unique aspects of their practices. Settings range from independent practices to university based departments for both pediatric and adult practices. The volume will be a valuable resource for graduate students interested in clinical neuropsychology, postdoctoral fellows embarking on a career in the field, and practitioners interested in enhancing their practices via the experiences of a diverse group of successful practicing neuropsychologists.
