“A very readable, well-edited book applicable to both students in rehabilitation and neuropsychology and well-established practitioners....This book serves to update the clinician's knowledge by providing research-based findings, novel ideas, and concepts that can be directly applied to their practice. It also can serve as a textbook for advanced students who have chosen to specialize in rehabilitation and are just beginning to work with patients who have neuropsychological impairments due to brain injury....I highly recommend this book.”

Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology

“The book's title captures its essence: A lovely combination of the latest scholarly research on a wide range of neuropsychological interventions combined with practical guidelines for the clinician. Rarely does one find this combination in such a readable and useful book. It is clear that the editor and authors are not simply academics but are also dedicated to the very real needs of their patients....Rehabilitation specialists will want to keep this book close at hand in their work. It is an excellent resource for effective treatment suggestions as well as a valuable guide for future research as we refine our knowledge of which treatments are effective for which people under which conditions.”

Neuropsychological Rehabilitation

“A jewel of a book for the experienced clinician and an important text for those entering the field....Almost all of the chapters are sophisticated presentations that are both thoughtful and thought-provoking....Rarely am I as excited about a book as I was reading Neuropsychological Interventions. It provides a needed resource for clinicians and researchers in the field. It also is a fine textbook for training young clinicians.”

The Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences

“This book is well-written and would serve well as a general guide in graduate neuropsychology, occupational health, and assessment classes. It contains many useful, up-to-date references and excellent brief task-orienting tables.”

“This book will be of immediate and vital importance to clinical neuropsychologists and allied professionals involved in caring for brain-damaged patients. Dr. Eslinger has assembled a superb collection of cutting-edge contributions that provide an exquisite blend of science and practice. The field of neuropsychological rehabilitation, growing exponentially in size and importance, has been waiting for two decades for a definitive textbook of this caliber. This book is essential reading for clinical and experimental neuropsychologists, rehabilitation therapists, speech therapists, and others who care for patients with brain injury. It would also serve as an excellent textbook for a graduate-level course on neuropsychological rehabilitation. Finally, students enrolled in postdoctoral residency training programs in clinical neuropsychology should have access to this book.”

“This book is a timely and worthy contribution to the field. Each author has hewed to the editor's charge to evaluate neuropsychological interventions 'clinically and scientifically.' The result is a comprehensive treatment of current problems and practice in neuropsychological rehabilitation that is refreshingly frank and honest. The theoretical and evidentiary bases for practice are critically reviewed. This volume not only can serve as a reference for practitioners and students, but also sets out a clear research agenda for the field.”

—Michael Weinrich, MD

“This book offers the most current, integrated knowledge of neuropsychological rehabilitation and clinical neuroscience. It examines many new advances in the field and demonstrates the significance of treating the brain-injured person as a whole, rather than as a collection of symptoms. Focusing on studies that have real-world applications, the book clearly outlines innovative research methodology to improve chances for replication. For students, researchers, and practitioners, this book will become a gold standard in the field.”

—Giuseppe Zappalà, MD, Unit of Behavioral Neurology, Clinical Neurotraumatology and Rehabilitation, Garibaldi Hospital, Catania, Italy

“This timely book, edited by a leading cognitive neuroscientist, represents an important contribution to the movement toward evidence-based interventions. Chapters by recognized experts provide a background in the history and methodology of cognitive neurorehabilitation, synthesize recent research, and appraise the applications to intervention in various neurobehavioral domains. Written from a scientific perspective, yet equally relevant to clinical practice, this is an indispensable book for both investigators and practitioners. It will also be a useful text for graduate courses in neurorehabilitation.”
