Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'A unique and appealing format that encourages additional thought as well as disagreement on some occasions. Contributors to this text are easily recognised as leaders in their respective areas and the consistent presentation of information through case vignettes gives a 'real-life' feel for how ethical dilemmas arise and are managed in day-to-day professional practice. ... The vignettes provided are very strong and thought-provoking. ... Overall, 'A Casebook of Ethical Challenges in Neuropsychology' is a well thought out book that serves as a strong companion to the original Bush & Drexler text. It provides a very good overview of how 'black and white' ethical guidelines play out in very 'gray' real-world'settings and is the only text and casebook in neuropsychology that addresses the APA Ethics Code. While this book is especially useful for students, pre- and post-doctoral trainees, and new professionals, the challenging and provocative nature of the content would enhance the ability of more experienced professionals to recognize and manage ethical challenges inherent in the practice of neuropsychology. For more senior practitioners, it serves as a unique reference for promoting through consideration of the new standards with the adequate breadth necessary for the many complex real worls situations that require balancing multiple and sometimes competing obligations. Althought it specifically addresses the ethics code of the APA, it has broad applicability for neuropsychologists across all continents. In combination, the initial Bush and Drexler text (2002) and the new Casebook represent seminal texts in the application of ethical principles to guide neuropsychological practice and would 'strengthen the shelf' of any clinician's library.'- Mark T. Barisa, Veterans Affairs Medical Centre Tennessee in IJFP Book Review August 2005
