About the Book

This volume is a contemporary survey of practice-related issues in clinical neuropsychology in the United States. Section 1 includes chapters on topics relevant to practitioners in clinical neuropsychology such as managed care, practice trends, business aspects of practice, training and credentialing, internet resources for practice, and research in the private practice setting. Section 2 provides narrative descriptions of a range of different practice settings. Authors give firsthand descriptions of their settings, billing and coding practices, how they interface with colleagues and referral sources, and other unique aspects of their practices. Settings range from independent practices to university based departments for both pediatric and adult practices. The volume will be a valuable resource for graduate students interested in clinical neuropsychology, postdoctoral fellows embarking on a career in the field, and practitioners interested in enhancing their practices via the experiences of a diverse group of successful practicing neuropsychologists.

Reviews

'This volume is essential reading for the practicing neuropsychologists regardless of experience and is nothing less than indispensable for the student neuropsychologist, from novice to advanced learner. The chapters provide a full featured portrait of the real practice of neuropsychology as told by those living their professional lives in a variety of roles and settings. To read this book's edited chapters is to gain a wealth of priceless experience from leading colleagues in neuropsychology who have taken decisions about how and where they practice. The book reveals the good, the bad, and the unexpected consequences. Those entering the practice of clinical neuropsychology will be flying needlessly blind without this book. ' - Ken Adams, University of Michigan
