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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Michael McCrea
This book provides a comprehensive historical review of the role of psychology in rehabilitative medicine, detailed descriptions of current psychological assessment methods used, and an overview of factors that psychologists must consider that may be unique to the assessment of medical and rehabilitation patients. The authors clearly meet their objectives of providing an all-in-one, updated clinical guide for psychological assessment in a physical medicine and rehabilitation setting. This book is certainly timely, because the field of rehabilitation psychology is establishing itself firmly as a subspecialty. The authors intend the book for rehabilitation psychologists in clinical practice. The book also appears appropriate as a helpful reference for the generalist assessing patients in which medical illness or disability is either an accompanying or contributory factor impacting on psychological functioning. It represents a useful training text for beginning clinicians by reviewing historical and current applications in the psychological assessment of rehabilitation patients. The tables provide actual content representations of various assessment instruments as well as effectively presented research data. The references are both thorough and up-to-date, including a review of the classic and most recent rehabilitation psychology literature. This new book should provide a comprehensive, updated clinical guide for psychologists practicing in a physical medicine and rehabilitation setting. It also represents an educational resource for professionals in the areas of behavioral medicine and chronic pain. This book represents a valuable reference for the psychologist faced with assessingthe complex contribution that psychological factors often make in medical cases.
