The practice of neuropsychology offers a unique yet multidimensional approach to clinical assessment, with its emphasis on the Bio-Psycho-Social Model. This chapter addresses a variety of issues that are relevant in our field, beginning with a discussion of the recommended model of training in neuropsychology and purposes of neuropsychological assessment. To give the reader a sense of the current context of neuropsychological assessment, we also describe the most typical work settings and specific issues in each, as well as populations seen and instruments used in our field. We then discuss some aspects of the assessment process that neuropsychologists consider, in addition to common challenges of our clinical and research practice, such as the assessment of practice effects, effort, individuals from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and general validity issues. We end this chapter with a brief discussion of the future of neuropsychological assessment and how technology may play a key role in shaping the activities and settings of our practice.
