Overview

Cognitive rehabilitation is a relatively young and rapidly changing field that extends beyond the amelioration of symptoms and control of dysfunctional behavior in the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders. Instead, it emphasizes identifying and building on patients' strengths, and ultimately facilitating the acquisition of the cognitive-behavioral skills needed to improve quality of life.

Cognitive Rehabilitation for Neuropsychiatric Disorders is a useful tool for clinicians who work with patients who have cognitive disabilities associated with neuropsychiatric conditions. A distinguished group of scientist practitioners share their up-to-date expertise on "normal" cognitive function and the concept of cognitive rehabilitation. Comprehensive in scope, the book covers a wide range of practical issues in cognitive rehabilitation.

Cognitive Rehabilitation for Neuropsychiatric Disorders presents an exceptional overview of the current knowledge about cognitive function and dysfunction, as well as the therapeutic strategies used to restore function that is lost as the result of central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Delving into a new subject area, this volume aims to aid the clinician in choosing treatment options that are relevant, respectful, and effective for patients with cognitive problems resulting from CNS disorders. Environmental requirements for setting up rehabilitation programs and the uses and potential of progressive techniques such as video and computer equipment are explored. Four models that serve as frameworks for organizing and developing treatment strategies are discussed, and detailed information is provided on what is known about cognitive deficits in depression, psychiatric disorders, and social anxiety.

Editorial Reviews

Contemporary Psychology

[T]he text fulfills its purpose as a review of theoretical models of cognitive disorders and the current clinical methods to treat and manage them. The book may help clinicians to choose intervention strategies, though the book soberly acknowledges their limitations.... The text certainly makes a worthwhile contribution to the cognitive rehabilitation literature.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, DO, MA (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is an exceptional new book detailing the current knowledge about cognitive function and dysfunction as well as strategies used to treat abnormal function as the result of central nervous system disorders. Written and edited by well known and respected clinician/researchers, this book is a welcome addition to the field.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is to provide a knowledge base that will aid the clinician in choosing treatment options that are relevant, respectful, and effective for patients with cognitive impairment caused by brain diseases. The editors and authors have achieved their goal.
Audience: The intended audience is clinicians who strive to help patients overcome cognitive disabilities associated with neuropsychiatric conditions. It would be helpful to psychiatrists, psychologists, neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, physiatrists, and psychiatry and neurology residents.
Features: The book features 459 pages that are organized into 16 chapters and divided into four parts. Part I discusses cognitive and neuropsychiatric deficits. Part 2 discusses interventions for severe neuropsychiatric disorders. Part 3 summarizes interventions for severe psychiatric disorders, and Part 4 reviews the practical issues in cognitive rehabilitation. Each chapter ends with an up-to-date and useful reference section. The index is also quite helpful.
Assessment: This new book documents the current state of the field in the cognitive rehabilitation of neuropsychiatric disorders and is a very useful tool for clinicians who work with these patients. I highly recommend it.
