“An excellent guide that can help novices and experienced practitioners alike 'light out' the often confusing and confounding territory of work-related conditions. With nearly uniform success, the chapters of this volume deliver on the promise to provide an evidence-based framework for the neuropsychological assessment of work-related injuries. Some chapters provide such detailed and comprehensive reviews of matters of universal clinical interest that the book actually transcends its work-related focus....It is easy to recommend Neuropsychological Assessment of Work-Related Injuries. While doing a good job of clarifying many of the unique and difficult demands inherent in the evaluation of work-related conditions, the book includes several excellent and up-to-date reviews on topics of wide clinical interest. This fact alone makes it one of those volumes that are a delight to pull off the shelf when struggling with the best way to conceptualize a challenging case, especially those that require a neuropsychologist to be more than a skillful and well-informed diagnostician.”

Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology


“Overall, quite successful in meeting the editors' stated goal of promoting evidence-based practice in the evaluation and treatment of workplace injuries and will likely serve to improve the quality of such practice for those who read it….The book is likely to be of particular relevance to those who practice in forensic and/or rehabilitation-oriented areas of neuropsychology; however, the topics covered are likely to be relevant to many, if not most, practicing neuropsychologists. As an added bonus, there is also a great deal of practical information that will serve as a useful reference for neuropsychologists, no matter how ‘green’ or ‘grizzled’ in their exposure to workplace injuries.”

Psychological Injury and Law


“This work provides an objective review of the role and function of neuropsychology in assessing work-related injuries, an area in which clinical neuropsychologists have long participated, but without such a comprehensive resource. From explanations of the underlying science to best-practice guidelines, the book is thorough, readable, and a tribute to the editors' ability to attract such quality authors. My copy will become worn very quickly.”

—Cecil R. Reynolds, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology and Neuroscience and Distinguished Research Scholar, Texas A&M University


“Given the paucity of books on the neuropsychological assessment of individuals who have been injured at work, this is a welcome contribution. Neurological and psychological injuries specific to the workplace are summarized. The book succeeds in promoting evidence-based neuropsychological assessments by integrating the latest research and facilitating biopsychosocial understanding. Graduate students and experienced clinicians alike will benefit from the authoritative reviews and guidelines for practice in both clinical and forensic settings.”

—Ronald M. Ruff, PhD, private practice, San Francisco, California


“Bush, Iverson, and their well-known contributing authors have targeted an area of neuropsychological practice that is important, yet underserved, in terms of books that provide needed guidance. Clinicians will find a diversity of topics relevant to practice with individuals who have—or may have—work-related injuries.”
