Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brenda Canning, BS (Univ of Illinois at Chicago Coll of Associated Health Professions)
Description: This is a resource book covering the terminology related to brain injury and cognitive and neurobehavioral issues. Entries include definitions of terminology as well as assessment and treatment suggestions for behavioral and cognitive disorders. References are included for some entries but not all. The author notes that some treatment suggestions are based on his own experience and those of clinicians he has worked with over the years.
Purpose: The author proposes to provide a concise work that clinicians working in the area of rehabilitation can use for defining terms and gathering generalized treatment strategies. The book does meet the author's objectives. There is no similar work that I am aware of as an occupational therapist. I feet that the book is most helpful for its definitions; they are clear, nicely cross-referenced, and often include behavioral examples. Treatment suggestions are usually described as strategies to improve functional performance and are quite practical. However, they should not be mistaken for a treatment plan which would take into account many more factors, including the environmental and task demands of a patient's daily occupations, a patient's age, and duration of his or her impairments.
Audience: The author recommends the text to clinicians and students in all allied health professions who deal with rehabilitation of persons with neurobehavioral and cognitive impairment. In my judgment, the book would be beneficial to students, new clinicians, or anyone new to neurobehavioral rehabilitation. Based on my experience, I believe the author to be a credible authority. His treatment suggestions are prudent and accepted practices in rehabilitation settings.
Features: The book is small enough to be carried in a lab coat pocket. It is alphabetized in a glossary-like fashion and, therefore, no table of contests or index is necessary. The clinician must have the term provided or have one in mind before looking up the definition. Compared to Dorland's Pocket Medical Dictionary, 22nd edition, definitions for cognitive and behavioral terms are more likely to be included and are also more complete in the PocketGuide. The overall appearance is adequate and the print size is easy to read.
Assessment: I would recommend this book to clinicians and students working in neurobehavioral rehabilitation. I feel that it would be a good addition to a personal or departmental library to supplement other more complete texts on the subject..
