Whereas the roots of the clinical neuropsychology specialty can be found in fields over a century old, it has grown very rapidly during the past thirty years. Doctoral programs in clinical psychology and predoctoral internship programs have developed concentrations in this area, as the need for postdoctoral training in this specialty has become increasingly acknowledged. Typically thought of as the clinical and empirical study of brain-behavior relationships, clinical neuropsychology is firmly grounded in psychology, behavioral neurology, psychiatry, psychometrics, and statistics.
In this volume, Drs. Lamberty and Nelson provide a comprehensive overview of the foundational and functional competencies related to the broad field of clinical neuropsychology. The authors distill not only the most important dimensions of the current science and practice, but also delineate important future directions and challenges. Anyone interested in obtaining an extensive survey of the extant literature related to this specialty, as well as insider knowledge on important professional issues, will find this volume to be an invaluable resource.
