Overview

"Perhaps the greatest challenge faced by neuropsychological assessment is its image as a bearer of bad news, i.e., the diagnosis of cognitive impairment. To meet this challenge and better address patient needs, practitioners need to fill the void that too often exists between diagnosis and treatment, starting with exchanging feedback about test results. The contributors to Collaborative Therapeutic Neuropsychological Assessment have developed methods that expand on traditional information-gathering means to build rapport with patients and let their voices be heard in decision-making: this client-centered approach has shown to lead to more personal interventions, better compliance, and stronger recovery." The clinical knowledge presented in Collaborative Therapeutic Neuropsychological Assessment builds on the centrality of assessment in care to signal potent new directions in practice and training. As such, it deserves to be read by neuropsychologists (as well as rehabilitation, clinical, and school psychologists), and used in courses and certification programs in psychological and neuropsychological assessment.
