Ethical Decision Making in Clinical Neuropsychology Book Excerpt:

This is an up-to-date guide to ethical decision making in the daily practice of clinical neuropsychology that includes a Continuing Education (CE) component administered by the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology. Emphasizing positive ethics, the book models a decision-making process by which practitioners can successfully resolve common ethical challenges. It is organized around the Ethical Standards of the American Psychological Association, each of which is systematically applied to neuropsychology and brought to life through extensive case studies that show the ethical decision-making model in action. (The book contains a total of 27 cases.) The book reflects the most recent published ethical, professional, and legal requirements and guidelines and synthesizes the latest research. Graduate students, those preparing for board certification, and even experienced clinical neuropsychologists will find much here that is useful; it will be especially valuable neuropsychologists who do forensic work. Those who wish to earn CE credit after reading the book are directed to a test on the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology website.

Ethical Decision Making in Clinical Neuropsychology Book Excerpt:

The ability to anticipate, avoid, and resolve ethical conflicts in neuropsychology is a dynamic process that must be developed and maintained over time. Ethics codes and professional guidelines are drafted and updated, changes in clinical practice occur, and new laws are implemented. To practice in a manner consistent with the highest ethics principles, neuropsychologists must be able to integrate the evolving ethical and legal requirements into their professional activities. The primary purpose of this 2nd edition is to review ethical guidelines and literature relevant to clinical neuropsychology that have been published since the first edition of this book was published a decade ago. A number of important publications have emerged since the first edition was published, including new Specialty Guidelines for Forensic Psychology, Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing, and position statements/practice guidelines by APA (e.g., Assessment of Older Adults with Diminished Capacity, co-authored with ABA) and other professional organizations (e.g., AACN, NAN) that are directly relevant to neuropsychological practice. In addition, scholarly publications have contributed knowledge to ethical practice in general (e.g., Knapp's & VandeCreek's work on positive ethics), which is relevant for, and should be applied to, neuropsychological practice. Additionally, book chapters on ethics in subspecialty areas (e.g., pediatric and geriatric neuropsychology, mTBI, Veterans) have advanced our understanding of ethical issues in neuropsychology and should be integrated into a new edition of the book. Finally, advances in technology and increased use of technology in clinical neuropsychology bring ethical issues and challenges incorporated in the new edition of the book. Learning exercises and study questions at the end of the chapters help readers review the main points and check their learning progress.

The Independent Neuropsychological Evaluation Book Excerpt:

The Independent Neuropsychological Evaluation explores the process of conducting an independent neuropsychological evaluation (IME) for disability related claims. While neuropsychologists are well trained in the area of clinical assessment, little training, mentoring, or supervision applies these skills to the disability arena, and a lack of literature specific to this rapidly growing area of practice by which to develop expertise encroaches on these needs. Authors Howard J. Oakes, David W. Lovejoy, and Shane S. Bush provide information about how to prepare disability related assessments that are valid, useful, and appropriate. They explain the language and context of "disability," offer relevant ethical and professional considerations, and cover business aspects of IMEs as well as particular neuropsychological related issues. Although the subject matter covered in this book has relevance to neuropsychological IMEs conducted in the context of civil litigation, workers' compensation, fitness for duty, and state- or federally-sponsored disability programs, this book emphasizes IMEs conducted for private disability insurance companies. Practicing neuropsychologists and clinical psychologists who conduct, or are contemplating conducting, independent examinations, as well as providers in neurology and psychiatry who may struggle with some of the same disability-related issues and questions, will find this volume of great practical use.
