Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tony A. Fletcher, PsyD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is the first text to address learning disabilities (LD), usually associated with neuropsychology, from a psychoanalytic approach. The authors accumulate the current research and the clinical expertise of several therapists into a case illustration of relevant knowledge in effectively treating individuals with LD. They take into consideration the cognitive difficulties as well as the secondary emotional dilemmas these individuals face daily.
Purpose: The purpose is to give mental health professionals additional treatment options that deal with patients' psychological and emotional dimensions. Traditionally treating their psychic conflicts have been overlooked and undertreated. This is an important, timely, and much needed understanding of LD that addresses psychological factors that play an intricate role in appropriate treatment.
Audience: This book is written for graduate course study in psychoanalytic therapy and will be an invaluable resource for the practicing professional who works with patients with LD. The authors are leading experts in psychoanalysis and give practical applications for this particular population.
Features: This book includes several clinical case vignettes which help to round out the appreciation of the plight of individuals with LD and possible treatment for these individuals. There are sufficient tables and figures that aid in the illustration of the authors' understanding and benefits gained by the use of psychoanalytic treatment. The references give an innovative look at the use of psychoanalytic treatment to a traditionally viewed neurological disturbance.
Assessment: This extremely useful therapeutic guide to treatment is a must-read for any clinician who treats individuals with LD. It brings together theoretical concepts, relevant research, and clinical applicability, and connects them with clinical vignettes to aid in the appreciation and appropriate treatment of LD.
