9780199774067: Civil Capacities in Clinical Neuropsychology: Research Findings and Practical Applications (National Academy of Neuropsychology: Series on Evidence-Based Practices)

Clinical neuropsychologists are increasingly involved in the evaluation of civil capacities and are in demand by other professionals, particularly attorneys and judges, to assist their decision-making about these sometimes complex issues. While there has been some neuropsychological research in this area, this has not been assembled into a single volume nor have practice recommendations been provided. This volume fills these gaps. The first part of this volume reviews and synthesizes the research literature on neuropsychological aspects of civil capacities. The specific capacities addressed include driving, financial and healthcare decision-making, testamentary (i.e., will-making) capacity, and personal care and independence. Each chapter addresses relevant background issues, conceptual/theoretical advances, and empirical findings. The chapters also include an illustrative case study that demonstrates how the authors (each expert in the various areas) evaluated and conceptualized the case. Each chapter is written from an evidence-based perspective and, where appropriate, uses research to inform practice recommendations. The second part of this volume provides recommendations to practitioners on how to conduct civil capacity evaluations that utilize neuropsychological assessment. There are chapters on an evaluative framework for the assessment, capacity test selection and psychometric issues, working with other data sources besides testing (e.g., collateral interviews), best practices in report-writing and testifying, as well as common ethical issues in such cases. Throughout, these chapters provide practical "how to" advice to improve neuropsychological practice and consulting in civil capacity cases. In addition to these chapters, there is a chapter written by legal consumers of psychological reports. This chapter offers a wealth of useful information and recommendations that, if followed, will further serve to advance psychological report-writing and consultation in civil capacity evaluations.

About the Author:


George J. Demakis, PhD, is Professor of Psychology and Health Psychology and Director of Clinical Training in the Health Psychology program at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. As a licensed psychologist in NC, he has considerable clinical experience conducing a variety of civil capacity evaluations. He has worked closely with attorneys, legal guardians, and legal decision makers (clerks of court and judges) in a wide variety of capacity evaluations. He has also consulted with the North Carolina Guardianship Association. He has published on a variety of topics including financial decision-making capacity, malingering, Alzheimer's and Parkinson diseases, and meta-analytic approaches to outcome after mild traumatic brain injury and executive functioning.

Review:


"The book contains first-rate chapters by leaders in the field... The focus of this book is on evidence based practice, and this it does well...Civil Capacities in Clinical Neuropsychology is a book that is certain to advance the field." -- Jennifer Moye, PsycCritiques


"...Civil Capacities is a major advance that is sure to become an essential text for those working in this area, including neuropsychologists, forensic psychologists, attorneys and judges." -- forensicpsychologist.blogspot.com


"This is a sorely needed compilation of topics related to civil capacities. It is the only publication where literature reviews, case studies, and practical applications are formulated into a coherent guide for almost any civil capacity evaluation encountered in clinical neuropsychology. No clinical neuropsychologist's shelf should be without this book and it should serve as a primer for intern and fellowship training in this area." --DOODY'S


"...this is an essential text for the clinician. It clarifies basic assumptions, models, roles,
and responsibilities, and it provides a rudimentary framework for conducting capacity evaluations. Furthermore, owing to the scientific blindspots it highlights, this text will also serve as a catalyst for subsequent research." -- Archives in Clinical Neuropsychology
