9780195383522: Forensic Neuropsychology: A Scientific Approach

Neuropsychologists are frequently asked to serve as experts for court cases where judgments must be made as to the cause of, and prognosis for, brain diseases and injuries, as well as the impact of brain dysfunction on legal competencies and responsibilities. This fully-updated second edition describes the application of neuropsychology to legal issues in both the civil and criminal courts. The book emphasizes the scientific basis of neuropsychology, as well as using a scientific approach in addressing forensic questions. All of the contributors are recognized experts in their fields, and the chapters cover common forensic issues such as appropriate scientific reasoning, the assessment of malingering, productive attorney-neuropsychologist interactions, admissibility of neuropsychological evidence, and ethics. Also covered are functional neuroimaging in forensic neuropsychology and the determination of damages in personal injury litigation, including pediatric brain injury (traumatic injury and perinatal birth injury), mild, moderate, and severe traumatic brain injury in adults, neurotoxic injury, chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, and assessment of medically unexplained symptoms. Civil competencies in elderly persons with dementia are addressed in a separate chapter, and two chapters deal with the assessment of competency and responsibility in criminal forensic neuropsychology. The book closes with a perspective on trends in forensic practice and research. Like the previous edition, this new volume is an invaluable resource for neuropsychologists, attorneys, neurologists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and their students and trainees.

About the Author:


Glenn J. Larrabee, Ph.D. is currently engaged in the full-time independent practice of clinical neuropsychology, with an emphasis in forensic neuropsychology, in Sarasota, Florida. He is board-certified in Clinical Neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) and a licensed psychologist in Florida and Texas. He is a fellow of both the National Academy of Neuropsychology, and of Division 40 of the American Psychological Association, and serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society, The Clinical Neuropsychologist, Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology, and Aging, Neuropsychology and Cognition. Dr. Larrabee has authored or co-authored numerous papers covering topics such as memory assessment, age-related cognitive change, Alzheimer's disease, mild traumatic brain injury, forensic neuropsychology, and malingering. He is the co-author, with Dr. Donald E. Trahan, of the Continuous Visual Memory Test, and the editor of Assessment of Malingered Neuropsychological Deficits (Oxford University Press, 2007). He is also the 2015 winner of APA's Award for Distinguished Professional Contributions to Independent Practice.

Review:


"The editor and his co-authors have assembled a thoughtful and comprehensive introduction to a rapidly evolving area of science and practice...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


"Overall, Larrabee's Forensic Neuropsychology: A Scientific Approach is an excellent addition to the growing literature available in forensic neuropsychology. The strength of this text lies in its adherence to Larrabee's initial theme of presenting a scientific approach to forensic neuropsychology. The chapters provide important information, including applicable clinical assessment guidelines, that is empirically driven and supported in the literature. Additionally, unlike many other similar texts, the contributors present research from a wide variety of sources thereby creating an objective feel rather than a presentation based on subjectivity or individual bias. This book belongs on the shelf of any neuropsychologist working in forensic settings, and will likely become a primary reference source when forensic questions arise." -- The Clinical Neuropsychologist


"This is an exceptional offering from leaders in neuropsychology that hits upon the most significant points in forensic work without being cumbersome or complicated. Moreover, the undeniable applicability to general competent neuropsychological practice makes it an absolutely essential resource. 100 - 5 Stars." DOODY'S
