Overview

The editors and authors of Psychological Assessment in Medical Rehabilitation examine the current applications of psychological assessment of adults in the context of physical rehabilitation. Cushman and Scherer begin by presenting a model of rehabilitation assessment that is based on the most current research and literature. They provide an overview of the testing considerations that are unique to individuals with disabilities and of associated special training needs for psychologists who work in this area. They also describe the various patient populations seen in rehabilitation settings and examine the topic of "consumer empowerment" as it pertains to psychological assessment. The chapter authors cover topics such as measures of coping and disability functional assessment, bedside screening of neurocognitive function, and the assessment of pain and pain behavior, family functioning and social support, vocational interests and abilities, and deficits awareness. For each of these areas of assessment, the authors describe typical referral questions, types of data gathered, frequently used tests, psychometric properties of the tests, and limitations and cautions that apply to tests and then use with specific populations.
