This book is about how to give outstanding feedback to patients, their family members, and other professionals. Effective feedback sessions have the potential to help patients understand their neurocognitive syndromes in the larger context of their real world environments and in a manner that positively alters lives.

As our profession has matured, feedback sessions with patients and family members have become the norm rather than the exception. Nonetheless, many senior and even mid-career neuropsychologists were never explicitly taught how to give feedback. And despite the burgeoning neuropsychological literature describing sophisticated assessment methods and neuropsychological syndromes, there has been almost no parallel literature describing techniques for communicating this information to patients and other professionals. This begs the question: how have we learned to do this extraordinary task well? And how do we effectively communicate intrinsically complex assessment results, to deliver the type of salient feedback that alters lives? It turns out, the answers are like feedback sessions themselves - varied and complex.

Feedback that Sticks presents a compilation of the clinical feedback strategies of over 85 neuropsychologists from all over the country: training directors, members of tertiary medical teams, and private practitioners. It offers the reader the ability to be a fly on the wall as these seasoned neuropsychologists share feedback strategies they use with patients across the lifespan, and who present with a wide variety of neurological and developmental conditions. Like receiving the best feedback training from 85 different mentors, the book gathers the most compelling, accessible ways of explaining complex neuropsychological concepts from a broad variety of practitioners. Through this process, it offers a unique opportunity for practicing neuropsychologists to develop, broaden, and strengthen their own approaches to feedback.

Review:


"How would you like to be a fly on the wall in the office of a respected neuropsychologist as he or she gives neuropsychological feedback to patients? Addressing adult and child patients with neuropsychological disorders including dementia, somatoform disorder, autism, and traumatic brain injury, among many others, Feedback that Sticks provides simulated quotes obtained from neuropsychologists during interviews about they how they would actually give feedback to their patients... This is a must-read resource for clinical neuropsychologists. It has the potential to change the way you practice."
Russell L. Adams, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, Professor, Director of Psychology Internship and Postdoctoral Programs, University of Oklahoma Health Science Center


"This very readable and interesting book is unlike any other neuropsychological assessment volume you are likely to read. I expect that most neuropsychologists give some kind of feedback to their patients: for example most will go through test findings with them; fewer, I suspect, will give information to the families; and even fewer are likely to think about the significance of providing feedback. This book should change all that. Before reading it, I had always assumed that the feedback I provided was reasonably inclusive, but the authors have taught me that there are many aspects to providing feedback that I had never considered. I learned a fair amount and will change some aspects of my professional behavior in the future." -- Barbara A Wilson, The Oliver Zangwill Centre, Ely, UK, Neuropsychological Rehabilitation
