Casebook of Clinical Neuropsychology features actual clinical neuropsychological cases drawn from leading experts' files. Each chapter represents a different case completed by a different expert. Cases cover the lifespan from child, to adult, to geriatric, and the types of cases will represent a broad spectrum of prototypical cases of well-known and well-documented disorders as well as some lower base rate disorders. Chapter authors were specifically chosen for their expertise with particular disorders. When a practitioner is going to see a child or an adult with "X" problem, they can turn to the "case" and find up to date critical information to help them understand the issues related to the diagnosis, a brief synopsis of the literature, the patient's symptom presentation, the evaluation including neuropsychological test results and other results from consultants, along with treatments and recommendations. Clinical cases represent a long-established tradition as a teaching vehicle in the clinical sciences, most prominently in medicine and psychology. Case studies provide the student with actual clinical material - data in the form of observations of the patient, examination/test data, relevant history, and related test results - all of which must be integrated into a diagnostic conclusion and ultimately provide the patient with appropriate recommendations. Critical to this educational/heuristic process is the opportunity for the reader to view the thought processes of the clinician that resulted in the conclusions and recommendations offered. With the science of the disorder as the foundation of this process, students learn how the integration of multiple sources of data furthers critical thinking skills. The case study method has rightfully endured because it is such a powerful teaching vehicle.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you are looking for a casebook of common neuropsychological disorders,
consider your search over. In fact, Morgan, Baron, and Ricker have provided an edition that delivers content well beyond its title. The authors have compiled a broad range of clinical cases, each of which provides an appropriate level of detail for readers who have pre-existing knowledge of neuropsychology principles. Thus this text is sure to find its way to the shelves of advanced graduate students,
postdoctoral residents, early career practitioners, and seasoned professionals who serve adult and pediatric populations." — Psychology Press

"Overall, Casebook of Clinical Neuropsychology is an excellent resource. It accomplishes its stated goal of providing reference for case preparation and does so for a great variety of conditions and in concise manner." — Alexander B. Chervinsky, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, Neuropsychological Assessment Platform

"As a supervisor, I suspect that one of the major ways I will use this book is for teaching. It is perfect for use with graduate students just starting their clinical work in neuropsychology... This book is interesting and informative in the sense that it gives you a glimpse into the clinical assessment procedures of a number of prominent neuropsychologists, so you get to see what types of tests they use, how they write up a case, and how they interpret data...I found myself thinking about several of the cases long after I had finished reading it. It is a valuable reference to add to one's arsenal of resources in the field of neuropsychology." — Suzanne Dickson, Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology

"In the Casebook of Clinical Neuropsychology, the editors have assembled a cast of neuropsychologists with expertise in a wide range of subspecialties to review and discuss informative cases from their clinical practices. The real-life cases presented in this text make a valuable contribution to one's personal reference library." — Timothy A. Crowell, Journal of Clinical and Experiemental Neuropsychology
