Neuropsychological Assessment and Intervention for Youth

$59.95

Researchers in pediatrics and psychology bridge the gap between neuropsychological evaluation and intervention for children with emotional and behavior disorders. The models they present adopt an integrated assessment-treatment paradigm that recognizes the complex interplay of genetics, neurodevelopment, and neuropsychological functioning.

Description

This comprehensive text translates basic brain science into empirically-supported clinical assessments and interventions for children. Co-editors Reddy, Weissman, and Hale – all first-rate clinical researchers – selected the emotional and behavioral disorders examined in each chapter based on their high prevalence in children and adolescents (e.g., OCD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, conduct disorders, etc.).

As such, it serves as the first published text bridging the gap between neuropsychological evaluation and clinical interventions for youth with emotional and behavioral disorders. This is a timely and important issue as emerging researchers – and the field at large – gain greater awareness of the intersection between neuropsychology and clinical practice.
