This clinical reference presents an advanced discussion and application of neuropsychological practice by addressing the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of the major forms of psychopathology. The book focuses on the neuropathological and pathophysiological basis of various symptoms with emphasis on the biological basis of each disorder. The text goes beyond the emotional and behavioral aspects of each disorder and views the broader impact of symptoms, including their functional implications (e.g., cognitive deficits with depression).

With contributions from leading scholars and practitioners in clinical neuropsychology, the text considers the adult versus child presentation of psychiatric disorders, and features the major forms of psychopathology, including ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Conduct and Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Somatoform Disorders, Schizophrenic Disorders, Personality Disorders, Cortical and Subcortical Dementias, and Eating Disorders. The book is written for clinical professionals and practitioners-in-training to help increase diagnostic accuracy and intervention success and to provide a way to approach psychopathologies as disorders of the neurological system.
