"This work provides an objective review of the role and function of neuropsychology in assessing work-related injuries, an area in which clinical neuropsychologists have long participated, but without such a comprehensive resource. From explanations of the underlying science to best-practice guidelines, the book is thorough, readable, and a tribute to the editors' ability to attract such quality authors. My copy will become worn very quickly."--Cecil R. Reynolds, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology and Neuroscience and Distinguished Research Scholar, Texas A&M University
"Given the paucity of books on the neuropsychological assessment of individuals who have been injured at work, this is a welcome contribution. Neurological and psychological injuries specific to the workplace are summarized. The book succeeds in promoting evidence-based neuropsychological assessments by integrating the latest research and facilitating biopsychosocial understanding. Graduate students and experienced clinicians alike will benefit from the authoritative reviews and guidelines for practice in both clinical and forensic settings."--Ronald M. Ruff, PhD, private practice, San Francisco, California
"Bush, Iverson, and their well-known contributing authors have targeted an area of neuropsychological practice that is important, yet underserved, in terms of books that provide needed guidance. Clinicians will find a diversity of topics relevant to practice with individuals who have--or may have--work-related injuries."--Jerry J.
