Traumatic Brain Injury: Methods for Clinical and Forensic Neuropsychiatric Assessment

Numerous books exist on traumatic brain injury, yet none comprehensively cover evaluation from both clinical and forensic standpoints. Traumatic Brain Injury: Methods for Clinical and Forensic Neuropsychiatric Assessment is the first medical book to guide treatment practitioners not only in methods for evaluating traumatic brain injury in adults and children, but also in the important elements of forensic brain injury assessment.

From the clinical aspect, the book details neurobehavioral data analysis and describes how to apply it to treatment planning and pharmacotherapy following traumatic brain injury. From the forensic perspective, it provides methods for detecting deception at examination and emphasizes the important legal concepts of causation, damages, and impairment determination following traumatic brain injury.

The text provides multiple explanatory tables, structural and functional brain imaging figures, and liberal case examples of actual traumatic brain injury examinations and reports. The practical and pragmatic approach offered in Traumatic Brain Injury: Methods for Clinical and Forensic Neuropsychiatric Assessment will aid clinicians and forensic specialists in comprehensively evaluating the TBI patient and successfully presenting the evaluation in the courtroom.
