"As medical science continues to progress, so does the field of rehabilitation psychology. Since its publication in 2000, the first edition of the Handbook of Rehabilitation Psychology has become the most influential book covering the principles and practices of the specialty. This second edition updates and significantly revises the original text to account for fast-paced developments in the field. Over one third of the chapters are new, including several on developmental issues and risk factors for children with severe illness or injuries." "Reflecting the ever-expanding scope of rehabilitation psychology, this handbook covers diverse topics such as the clinical conditions most common to rehabilitation psychology (spinal cord injury, limb amputation, traumatic brain injury, stroke, and more), assessment and clinical interventions, neuroimaging, alcohol and substance abuse, vocational rehabilitation, assistive technology for cognitive impairments, ethics, spirituality, and the problems of family caregivers." With its unparalleled breadth of coverage, the Handbook of Rehabilitation Psychology, Second Edition, will serve the needs of psychologists, physicians, nurses, psychiatrists, rehabilitation therapists, and a variety of other health care practitioners and researchers as well as graduate students in these fields.

"...written for both scientists & practitoners, covers chronic disease, injury, & disability, addressing contemporary practice issues, research, & policy concerns."

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gary B Kaniuk, Psy.D.(Cermak Health Services)
Description: This book describes rehabilitation psychology, a specialty which began after World War II. The first edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: According to the editors, this second edition "provides an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of the issues related to rehabilitation psychology."
Audience: The editors view the book "as a useful sourcebook for the growing ranks of rehabilitation psychologists, as well as researchers and practitioners in the many related health fields —medicine, nursing, psychiatry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, health care administration, education, and family therapy, to name a few." Robert Frank, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at Kent State University, is a diplomate in clinical psychology and current fellow of the rehabilitation psychology of the American Psychological Association. Mitchell Rosenthal, who died in 2007, was chief operating officer at the Kessler Medical Rehabilitation Research and Education Corporation in New Jersey. Bruce Caplan is board certified in rehabilitation psychology and clinical neuropsychology and is a fellow of the American Psychological Association.
Features: The book begins with a description of the principles and practices related to common rehabilitation conditions including spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and chronic pain. It then discusses assessment issues, such as forensic psychological evaluation and neuroimaging, and clinical interventions including psychotherapeutic and cognitive rehabilitation. Pediatrics rehabilitation topics are addressed as well. Lastly, ethics, public policy, and competencies for rehabilitation psychologists are considered. The chapter on ethics is helpful in the way it addresses basic clinical issues that are encountered regularly, and discusses general principles, releasing test data, informed consent, and multiple relationships. There are interesting figures, tables, and exhibits.
Assessment: This is an excellent, comprehensive look at rehabilitation psychology. It addresses both research and practice guidelines, as well as professional issues. The field has radically changed in the past decade, justifying this second edition, which covers new topics and updates basic principles and practices.
