Psychological Management of Stroke presents a comprehensive review and synthesis of the current data relating to the assessment, treatment, and psychological wellbeing of stroke patients. Information on clinical practice -- and the research evidence to support that practice -- will assist clinical psychologists and other relevant health care professionals through all phases of stroke recovery and care.
Each chapter features a careful synthesis of recent international research about psychological factors relevant to stroke survivors, their families, and the services in which they are cared for and treated. Research results and effective treatment approaches are complemented by the inclusion of several personal case studies that reveal the perspectives of both survivors and their carers. Written by clinical psychologists working in stroke services, Psychological Management of Stroke represents an invaluable resource for anyone involved in the treatment of the psychological aspects of stroke.
