From the Inside Flap:

Millions of workers are injured on the job every year. Unique in its focus, this volume provides an evidence-based framework for neuropsychological assessment of work-related injuries. Leading authorities present up-to-date information on a wide range of neurological and psychological problems and offer guidelines for conducting effective evaluations. Addressing important scientific, legal, ethical, and professional issues, this book is essential reading for practitioners in clinical or forensic settings. Parts I and II describe common injuries sustained in the workplace that can cause time-limited or permanent cognitive impairment. Coverage encompasses traumatic brain injury, sports concussion, electrical injury, exposure to neurotoxic substances, posttraumatic stress, depression, chronic pain, and brain and psychological injuries experienced in combat. Contributors review the epidemiology and pathophysiology of each type of injury, its typical symptom presentation and course, the impact on day-to-day functioning and job performance, diagnostic dilemmas, and approaches to neuropsychological assessment and treatment planning. Part III turns the lens on professional practice issues, with particular attention to the practitioner's role in helping to make determinations about disability status and compensation claims. The complexities of conducting independent examinations and consulting to attorneys, government agencies, and insurance companies are discussed. The book also presents keys to preparing reports that are relevant for vocational rehabilitation planning. Grounded in the best available knowledge -- while also identifying areas where further research is needed -- this is a rich resource for practicing clinicians and advanced trainees in neuropsychology, clinical and forensic psychology, psychiatry, and rehabilitation.
