Abstract

Neuropsychological Assessment of Neuropsychiatric Disorders was originally published in 1986, and in 1996 was selected one of the “essential books and journals in North American Clinical Neuropsychology” in a survey of ABPP Diplomats. The Second Edition promises to maintain this position. As was the case in the original, the editors aimed to (1) present leading approaches to neuropsychological assessment in neuropsychiatric populations; and (2) evaluate current understanding of the neuropsychology of more important or problematic disorders. Organization of this edition follows that of the First Edition. The first section covers methods of neuropsychological assessment and the second section covers targeted neuropsychiatric disorders. This edition also adds a third section on psychosocial consequences and moderating factors in neuropsychological impairment, particularly as illustrated in people with head injury and chronic pulmonary disease. Two-thirds of the original authors, as well as 25 new authors, contributed. More often than not these contributors are leading authorities in their respective topic.
