Minority and Cross-cultural Aspects of Neuropsychological Assessment
Minority and Cross-Cultural Neuropsychological Assessment pulls together neuropsychological assessment issues across a wide range of minority groups and populations currently underserved. Included are chapters related to African-Americans, Asian/Pacific Islanders, Hispanic/Latinos, Native Americans, and Rural Populations. Some minority groups have not been as widely studied or examined as other groups from a neuropsychological assessment perspective. This book will fill this obvious void. Other chapters are devoted to traditions and trends in clinical neuropsychology, and there is a section that examines the future of minority and cross-cultural issues in neuropsychological assessment. The current literature regarding minority and cross-cultural issues in neuropsychological assessment is quite scattered and it is the goal of this book to provide a more thorough review and refinement of the issues presented.
Minority and Cross-Cultural Aspects of Neuropsychological Assessment is a practical handbook for clinical practice and research. It is recommended for academic health sciences libraries, psychology libraries, and practicing psychologists who are developing neuropsychological assessment techniques within diverse populations. - Sunny Lynn Worel, Minnesota Department of Health
