What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
This comprehensive reference book, written by a panel of experts in the field, should be on the bookshelf of everyone dealing with stroke patients. The needs of the patient and their family can only be fully understood if all professionals have genuine insight into the cognitive, emotional and communication problems arising as a consequence of stroke. There is also coverage of the social dimensions of stroke, which is of upmost importance for patients and care providers.
W. De Weerdt, Full Professor and Chair Neurorehabilitation Sciences, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium

It is only recently that the wider clinical community has begun to recognise the widespread and serious "invisible" consequences of stroke. This book provides a timely and comprehensive summary of psychological aspects of stroke management; ranging from descriptions of the problems and their causes, through to the theory and practice of management. The authors provide a refreshing blend of theoretical text, clinical evidence and practical advice. This will be an invaluable resource for clinical psychologists who work with stroke patients, as well other disciplines specialising in stroke rehabilitation.
Peter Langhorne, Professor of Stroke Care, University of Glasgow, UK
