9780195158991: Forensic Neuropsychology: A Scientific Approach

With increasing frequency neuropsychologists are being asked to serve as experts in court cases where judgements must be made as to the cause of, and prognosis for brain diseases and injuries. This book describes the application of neuropsychology to legal issues in both the civil and criminal courts. It emphasizes a scientific basis of neuropsychology. All of the contributors are recognized as scientist-clinicians. The chapters cover common forensic issues such as appropriate scientific reasoning, the assessment of malingering, productive attorney-neuropsychologist interactions, and ethics. Also, covered are the determination of damages in personal injury litigation, including pediatric brain injury, mild, moderate, and severe traumatic brain injury in adults (with an introduction to life care planning); neurotoxic injury; and forensic assessment of medically unexplained symptoms. Civil competencies in the elderly persons with dementia are addressed a separate chapter, and two chapters deal with the assessment of competency and responsibility in criminal forensic neuropsychology. This volume will be an invaluable resource for neuropsychologists, attorneys, neurologists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and their students and trainees.

About the Author:

Glenn J. Larrabee is at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Florida.

Review:


"The editor and his co-authors have assembled a thoughtful and comprehensive introduction to a rapidly evolving area of science and practice...It is, however, an excellent, thoughtful and thought-provoking introduction to this area of practice, one that will remain a useful resource for addressing the controversies surrounding the practice of forensic neuropsychology."--Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society


(cont'd)"...Larrabee's text is a must-read for students and professors who wish to include this area of practice in their curriculum. It is ideal for clinicians and attorneys who know little but want to better understand and appreciate how these two professions intersect, though "collide" might often be a better descriptor. And finally, even for those neuropsychologists who consider themselves seasoned in the legal arena, this text will remind them of the complex and myriad factors influencing their practice, as well as providing an overview of how the science of understanding brain-behavior relationships can be better and more carefully applied to legal cases."--Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society


"The chapters on traumatic brain injury are extremely helpful and full of information. ... it covers everything you would expect. ...it is worth the financial investment if forensic neuropsychology is your career track." --Doody's


"To summarize, this is an amazingly informative book and comes as a boon to all forensic neuropsychologists. This book should find a place in the shelves of every forensic neuropsychologist- be he a beginner or an expert. Fully and heartily recommended."--Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology
