Overview

Right Hemisphere Damage: Disorders Of Communication And Cognition is an outstanding text that provides a wealth of the latest information on right hemisphere damage, presented in a well-organized format and written in an easy-to-read style. It blends understanding of the attentional, cognitive, linguistic, and affective base for communication impairments subsequent to right hemisphere damage, synthesizing the latest research findings with clinical realities. Providing clinically relevant ways of conceptualizing the deficits associated with right hemisphere damage, the author includes useful suggestions about their management and provides inspiration for developing new treatment interventions that will improve the lives of those afflicted with damage on the right side of the brain.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book contains a wealth of information that will be valuable to any clinician, student or researcher who is working with people who have sustained damage to the right side of their brain. The book is a pleasure to read and it is difficult to generate anything but positive criticism of it. It is essential for any clinician or researcher. It is accessible enough for students to read, but is sufficiently comprehensive and is extensively referenced to satisfy the more demanding reader." — Aphasiology

"Inspires the reader with new treatment models and promotes research that is sensitive to the clinical realities of the disorders following RHD. It is a useful clinical text for every clinician involved in the management of patients with RHD, and carries up-to-date reviews and references for those who may have more research-oriented interest in this field." —Brain

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anastasia Raymer, PhD (Old Dominion University )
Description: This book reviews literature describing effects of right hemisphere damage (RHD) upon communication and related cognitive abilities. It synthesizes research and clinical information into practical chapters suggesting a direction for assessment and treatment of right hemisphere disorders.
Purpose: The author intends to integrate clinical and experimental research along with personal experience in a description of the deficits associated with RHD. Her goal is to identify a common basis for communication/cognitive disorders with the hope that clinicians might ultimately use this understanding to provide more effective treatments for RHD patients. This is a laudable goal that should benefit RHD patients receiving clinical services. The author makes a great contribution as she compiles the most relevant research into a format that is eminently usable for the practicing clinician.
Audience: Drawing upon years of experience studying right hemisphere communication disorders, the author prepared this book for students, clinicians, and researchers in speech-language pathology and related rehabilitation professions. Although researchers may seek the original literature for a more thorough understanding of the topics, students and clinicians will appreciate the clear, readable research overview with its practical clinical applications.
Features: A number of chapters are devoted to descriptions of pertinent research describing the subtle, but debilitating, disorders of prosodic, linguistic, and discourse aspects of communication which occur following RHD. Much appreciated are chapters in which the author tries to stem confusion regarding impairments of attention as distinguished from spatial attention impairments (neglect). Clinicians working daily with RHD patients will especially value chapters that describe current assessment materials and potential treatment techniques.
Assessment: This is a valuable clinical resource that belongs on the desks of practicing clinicians. The readable yet thorough overview provides an excellent text for use in courses focusing on right hemisphere disorders. This book goes beyond the work of Tompkins' Right Hemisphere Communication Disorders (Singular Publishing Group, 1995), as it spends more time delineating the multifaceted research efforts in RHD and merges research findings with functional clinical information. It should serve as a basis for much future clinical research in patients with RHD.
