Clinician's Guide To Neuropsychological Assessment

Clinician's Guide To Neuropsychological Assessment Lowest new price: $75.60
Lowest used price: $71.70
List price: $97.95

Neuropsychological assessment is a difficult and complicated process. Often, experienced clinicians as well as trainees and students gloss over fundamental problems or fail to consider potential sources of error. Since formal test data on the surface appear unambiguous and objective, they may fall into the habit of overemphasizing tests and their scores and underemphasizing all the factors that affect the validity, reliability, and interpretability of test data. But interpretation is far from straightforward, and a pragmatic application of assessment results requires attention to a multitude of issues.

This long-awaited, updated, and greatly expanded second edition of the Clinician's Guide to Neuropsychological Assessment, like the first, focuses on the clinical practice of neuropsychology. Orienting readers to the entire multitude of issues, it guides them step by step through evaluation and helps them avoid common misconceptions, mistakes, and methodological pitfalls. It is divided into three sections: fundamental elements of the assessment process; special issues, settings, and populations; and new approaches and methodologies. The authors, all of whom are actively engaged in the clinical practice of neuropsychological assessment, as well as in teaching and research, do an outstanding job of integrating the academic and the practical.

The Clinician's Guide to Neuropsychological Assessment, Second Edition will be welcomed as a text for graduate courses but also as an invaluable hands-on handbook for interns, postdoctoral fellows, and experienced neuropsychologists alike. No other book offers its combination of breadth across batteries and approaches, depth, and practicality.

Narcolepsy: A Funny Disorder That's No Laughing Matter

Narcolepsy: A Funny Disorder That's No Laughing Matter Lowest new price: $104.99
Lowest used price: $22.99
List price: $18.00
Author: Marguerite J. Utley

This book provides accurate facts about all aspects of narcolepsy, a little-known neurological sleep disorder. It is estimated that 150,000-250,000 people in the U.S. have narcolepsy, but most of those have not yet been diagnosed. In the past, patients have seen an average of five or more physicians over a decade or longer before receiving a correct diagnosis of narcolepsy. As the public becomes better informed and more doctors are entering the field of sleep medicine, people are being diagnosed quicker and at an easlier age.

A wealth of information about narcolepsy is available on the internet, but this 166-page book is the most comprehensive, single source of information to be found. In addition to facts, the author relates her personal experiences with all the symptoms and describes how the disorder has impacted her life. It is an excellent reference source and a self-help book rolled into one.

People with narcolepsy usually have great difficulty reading a book without falling asleep. If anything can keep them awake, this book will. It is written in layman's terms, with a positive approach and amusing stories that encourage you to read on.

Understanding Williams Syndrome: Behavioral Patterns and Interventions

Understanding Williams Syndrome: Behavioral Patterns and Interventions Lowest new price: $70.56
Lowest used price: $26.81
List price: $90.95
Author: Eleanor Semel
Brand: Brand: Routledge

Comprehensive and readable, Understanding Williams Syndrome: Behavioral Patterns and Interventions is an essential guide for all those professionally, scientifically, or personally involved with this so frequently misunderstood and underserved population--psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other mental health professionals; special educators and vocational counselors; speech-language, physical, and occupational therapists; audiologists; physicians; and parents.
 
In the last 20 years, Williams syndrome has captured the interest of large numbers of scientists and attracted considerable media attention in spite of its rarity (estimated at no more than one in 30,000 births). Those diagnosed display a unique pattern of behavioral, cognitive, and physical limitations and strengths with fascinating neurogenetic implications--a pattern that poses enormous challenges to their parents and caregivers.

The authors, a specialist in learning disabilities and a developmental psychologist, review basic information about Williams syndrome, its medical conditions, paradoxical profile, and neurobiological mechanisms; and discuss distinctive features of the language and perceptual and motor performance of children and adults with the syndrome. 
 
Other features include:
* Strategies for working with patients.
* An examination of the difference between Williams syndrome and other developmental disorders.
* Problem-specific alternatives for treatment.
* Analysis of new directions in research, clinical intervention, education, and systems for care delivery.
 

Throughout, they stress variations among individuals and subgroups in ability level, skills, talents, and problem severity; and emphasize the necessity of recognizing these components in planning treatment on an individual basis.

Functional Restoration of Adults and Children with Upper Extremity Amputation

Functional Restoration of Adults and Children with Upper Extremity Amputation Lowest new price: $65.33
Lowest used price: $5.50
List price: $250.00
Author: Dr. Robert H. Meier III MD
Brand: Brand: Demos Medical

"This is the only comprehensive guide to the surgery, prosthetic fitting, and rehabilitation of individuals sustaining an arm amputation. It incorporates the major advances in prosthetics and rehabilitation that have occurred in recent years, and will improve the quality of service and the outcomes for those who sustain an arm amputation. Sections deal with the surgical aspects of arm amputation, the comprehensive management of the arm amputee, prosthetic restoration following arm amputation, the special concerns of upper extremity amputation in children, and clinical outcomes.

The incidence, demographics, and functional outcomes are quite different from those of lower limb amputees. The arm amputee is most commonly a young man who sustains a traumatic injury, most often to his right, dominant arm. Because the incidence of arm amputation is low compared to that of the lower extremity, relatively few health professionals have much experience in providing surgery, therapy, rehabilitation, prosthetic care, or counseling for a significant number of arm amputees. This book is the definitive text for these individuals.

The prosthetic field, including its allied healthcare team, takes on a formidable task in restoring physical capabilities to the upper extremity amputee. This feat cannot be accomplished solely using modern technology, and technology is not always the central issue. Optimal rehabilitation requires an underlying commitment in many essential areas of care: for one, sensitivity to the desires, anxieties and fears of the individual with amputation. Although the prosthetic practitioner has at his or her disposal more technology than ever before, restoring integral function for the amputee involves still more than mechanical application. Interdisciplinary, cooperative efforts in research, development, and treatment between prosthetic practitioners and other constituents of the allied healthcare team is paramount. The rehabilitation process must focus not only on the provision and use of a prosthesis, but also on issues related to surgical procedures, self-determination and pain management. To this end, Functional Restoration of Adults and Children with Upper Extremity Amputation provides the definitive guide for all surgeons, prosthetists, and rehabilitation professionals who work with upper limb amputees.

The Great Ideas of Clinical Science: 17 Principles that Every Mental Health Professional Should Understand

The Great Ideas of Clinical Science: 17 Principles that Every Mental Health Professional Should Understand Lowest new price: $50.00
Lowest used price: $5.49
List price: $67.95
Brand: Scott O Lilienfeld

The idea that there is a fundamental rift between researchers and practitioners should not come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the current literature, trends, and general feelings in the field of clinical psychology. Central to this scientist-practitioner gap is an underlying disagreement over the nature of knowledge - namely that while some individuals point to research studies as the foundation of truth, others argue that clinical experience offers a more adequate understanding of the causes, assessment, and treatment of mental illness.

The Great Ideas of Clinical Science is an ambitious attempt to dig beneath these fundamental differences, and reintroduce the reader to unifying principles often overlooked by students and professionals alike. The editors have identified 17 such universals, and have pulled together a group of the most prolific minds in the field to present the philosophical, methodological, and conceptual ideas that define the state of the field. Each chapter focuses on practical as well as conceptual points, offering valuable insight to practicing clinicians, researchers, and teachers of any level of experience. Written for student, practitioner, researcher, and educated layperson, this integrative volume aims to facilitate communication among all mental health professionals and to narrow the scientist-practitioner gap.

Consciousness and Experience (MIT Press)

Consciousness and Experience (MIT Press) Lowest new price: $29.60
Lowest used price: $10.00
List price: $11.75
Author: William G. Lycan

This sequel to Lycan's Consciousness (1987) continues the elaboration of his general functionalist theory of consciousness, answers the critics of his earlier work, and expands the range of discussion to deal with the many new issues and arguments that have arisen in the intervening years―an extraordinarily fertile period for the philosophical investigation of consciousness. Lycan not only uses the numerous arguments against materialism, and functionalist theories of mind in particular, to gain a more detailed positive view of the structure of the mind, he also targets the set of really hard problems at the center of the theory of consciousness: subjectivity, qualia, and the felt aspect of experience. The key to his own enlarged and fairly argued position, which he calls the "hegemony of representation," is that there is no more to mind or consciousness than can be accounted for in terms of intentionality, functional organization, and in particular, second-order representation of one's own mental states.
