About the Author

Dr. Prigatano is presently the Emeritus Chairman of Clinical Neuropsychology and Newsome Chair of Neuropsychology at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. He is an internationally recognized expert in neuropsychological rehabilitation and the study of anosognosia. His most recent professional work focuses both on the neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapy of children and adults with various brain disorders. He is an honorary member of several international organizations and in 1998 served as the President of the National Academy of Neuropsychology within the United States.


This is an excellent book. It is original, unique, and provides a superb integration of many different sources of information to provide a rich tapestry of clinical insights. George Prigatano's vast professional experience, knowledge, wisdom, and humaneness shines through in this extraordinary book. The book is a comprehensive, well-integrated resource, but individual chapters can also be read in isolation, without having to read the whole book for these to make sense. This is very valuable for readers who are experienced practitioners within the field, but equally also to those who may be less experienced, or who are primarily interested in specific topics covered in the book."

Clinical Neuropsychology and the Psychological Care of Persons with Brain Disorders is thoughtfully organized and very well written. Prigatano provides several overviews of the provision of neuropsychological services more broadly, and discusses these concepts in greater detail with specific neurological populations."

Dr. Prigatano's book is valuable in its width, and it delivers readers insight into the multi-faceted nature of clinical neuropsychological work. The core arguments are clear, convincing, and well-reported. The insights are in accordance with the zeitgeist, but original in their essence. The book covers a wide variety of theory and clinical work. Mind-brain relations are described throughout the life span according to recent scientific advances. Rehabilitation practices are viewed in accordance with modern demands with the core theme of psychological care in any brain disorder. Interactional process is emphasized with alliance, trust rapport, and resilience as adjusting means to altered life situations. The text offers working guidelines for professionals as well as students in the field."
