The American Psychological Association published a revision of the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct in 2002.This text, a companion to the 2002 text Ethical Issues in Clinical Neuropsychology by Bush and Drexler, presents the reader with common ethical challenges in neuropsychology. This text examines the differences between the 1992 and 2002 APA Ethics Codes as they relate to neuropsychological activities. The authors present cases and discuss ethical issues related to neuropsychological practice with a variety of patient populations and in a variety of clinical settings. In addition, ethical issues in neuropsychological research and test development are examined. The text also includes chapters on emerging and particularly challenging aspects of neuropsychological practice, such as the assessment of response validity, and the use of information technology and telecommunications. Through the use of case illustrations, the authors examine ethical issues in neuropsychology and the new Ethics Code, offering a practical approach for understanding and promoting ethical neuropsychological practice.

Until now there has been no single volume in which a broad and comprehensive scope of ethical questions in neuropsychology is discussed. These editors have sought to fill that gap, calling upon leading thinkers in the field of neuropsychology and ethics. Ethical Issues in Clinical Neuropsychology affords the seasoned practitioner as well as the beginner a broad sampling of research and commentary on the ethical dilemmas involved in the clinical practice of Neuropsychology. Part 1 presents ethical issues that arise in the provision of neuropsychological services irrespective of setting, whereas Part 2 concentrates on the unique ethical challenges that attend practice with specific populations. Each chapter offers a rare view into the actual practice of Neuropsychology and the examples highlight an oft-quoted observation at Ethics Committee meetings that good clinical practice is good ethical practice. Carefully crafted vignettes allow the reader to apply these concepts to a myriad of situations confronting practicing clinical neuropsychologists. The discerning reader of Ethical Issues in Clinical Neuropsychology should have no difficulty translating between the 1992 and the proposed ethics code. This is a volume that will be a meaningful addition not only to the libraries of graduate students, interns, and postdoctoral fellows but also to the reference shelves of established practitioners and those preparing for board certification examinations in neuropsychology. This book will be of interest to neuropsychologists, rehabilitation psychologists, clinical psychologists and ethicists.

This is an up-to-date guide to ethical decision making in the daily practice of clinical neuropsychology that includes a Continuing Education (CE) component administered by the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology. Emphasizing positive ethics, the book models a decision-making process by which practitioners can successfully resolve common ethical challenges. It is organized around the Ethical Standards of the American Psychological Association, each of which is systematically applied to neuropsychology and brought to life through extensive case studies that show the ethical decision-making model in action. (The book contains a total of 27 cases.) The book reflects the most recent published ethical, professional, and legal requirements and guidelines and synthesizes the latest research. Graduate students, those preparing for board certification, and even experienced clinical neuropsychologists will find much here that is useful; it will be especially valuable neuropsychologists who do forensic work. Those who wish to earn CE credit after reading the book are directed to a test on the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology website.

This is the final volume in a three-volume work that has addressed the scientific methodologies relevant to clinical neurobehavioral toxicology. Volume I focused on basic concepts and methodologies in Neurobehavioral Toxicology, with Volume II focusing on the peripheral nervous system. Volume III attends to what is known about industrial and environmental chemicals, medicines, and substances of abuse and how these agents affect the central nervous system. All substances have the capacity to be toxic, depending on factors that include the physical properties of the chemical or compound, organism related variables, or interaction between the two. These substances on the other hand and as a result of these same factors might be used therapeutically or even recreationally. The difference between medicine, recreational drug, or poison depends often on a careful balance between adverse and intended effects. How to determine that a specified substance has caused harm is emphasized in the present volume by way of case examples and discussion. Illnesses and behavioral variations that compete with toxicant-induced explanations for findings in a given case, as well as the various controversies that can arise around issues of diagnosis and causal determination, are treated comprehensively in this volume.

This volume has as its primary aim the examination of issues concerning executive function and frontal lobe development. While many texts have addressed these issues, this is the first to do so within a specifically developmental framework. This area of cognitive function has received increasing attention over the past decade, and it is now established that the frontal lobes, and associated executive functions, are critical for efficient functioning in daily life. It is also clear, and of particular relevance to this text, that these functions develop gradually through childhood, and then deteriorate during old age. These developmental trajectories, and the impact of any interruption to them, are the focus of this volume.

It is difficult to imagine what it must be like for someone following the personal crisis and catastrophe that ensues as a result of a serious traumatic brain injury (TBI). The individual is confronted with a huge range of alterations in his or her normal functioning, operating at the biological, psychological and social levels. All of these changes are also occurring to an individual who has just had a near-death experience, culminating not too surprisingly in the reflections "Who am I?" and "Why am I here?" As a result, these individuals can develop a wide range of behavioural, emotional, and psychiatric conditions following the injury, including depression, bipolar disorder, secondary mania, psychotic states, posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobic disorders, and generalized anxiety disorders, to name a few. In addition, these individuals can also be subject to a number of neuropsychiatric syndromes, including disorders of drive, disorders of impulse control, and disturbance of neurovegetative functioning. This book presents the current state of our knowledge of the behavioural and emotional effects that can occur as sequelae of TBI, and addresses issues associated with their differential diagnosis and the neurobiological mechanisms by which these might occur. The book will prove an excellent resource not only for clinicians who practice as psychiatrists, behavioural neurologists, clinical neuropsychologists and clinical psychologists, but also for psychologists in advanced training and for anyone who is involved in caring for or working with individuals with TBI.

In Trouble in Mind, neuropsychologist Jenni Ogden, author of Fractured Minds, transports the reader into the world of some of her most memorable neurological patients as she explores with compassion, insight, and vivid description the human side of brain damage. These are tales of patients who, as the result of stroke, brain tumor, car crash, or neurological disease, begin thinking and behaving strangely, and with their loved ones' support embark on the long journey to recovery, acceptance of disability and sometimes, death. There is Luke, the gang member who loses his speech but finds he can still sing his favorite blues number "Trouble in Mind," and HM, who teaches the world about memory and becomes the most studied single case in medical history. You will meet Julian, who misplaces his internal map of the human body, and Melody, a singer who risks losing her song when she undergoes brain surgery to cure her epilepsy. Then there is Kim with a severe head injury, and Sophie who has just enough time to put her house in order before Alzheimer's dementia steals her insight. For these and the many other patients whose stories are told in this book, the struggle to understand their disordered minds and disobedient bodies takes extraordinary courage, determination, and patience. For health professionals and researchers working with these patients, the ethical and emotional challenges can be as demanding as the intellectual and treatment decisions they make daily. Trouble In Mind is written in an accessible narrative style that is both accurate and intimate. It will be enjoyed by readers -- whether students, researchers, or professionals in mental health and neuroscience, patients with neurological disorders and their families, or general readers -- who want to learn more about brain disorders and the doctors who care for those who suffer them.
