Positive Neuropsychology: Evidence-Based Perspectives on Promoting Cognitive Health

 
9781489997708: Positive Neuropsychology: Evidence-Based Perspectives on Promoting Cognitive Health

Psychology and many of its subfields have seen a significant shift over the past 10-12 years toward a focus on hope, positive attributes, and character strengths through the positive psychology movement. This book provides a blueprint for a burgeoning subfield in neuropsychology―positive neuropsychology. It proposes an alternative, evidence-based perspective on neuropsychology that incorporates positive psychology principles and a focus on promotion of cognitive health. It synthesizes existing research and provides novel perspectives on promotion of cognitive health in clinical, nonclinical, and academic settings. This work is a resource and reference for neuropsychologists, allied professionals, and students who see the critical role neuropsychologists can play in maintaining, promoting, and being mindful of cognitive health.

From the Back Cover:

Positive psychology--the study and promotion of character strengths, positive emotion, and optimism--has gained considerable momentum and support in recent years. Yet despite its application to various specialty areas within the broader field of psychology, neuropsychology has been slow to adopt and adapt its ideas.

 The contributors to Positive Neuropsychology assert that neuropsychology as a discipline should concern itself with promoting cognitive health as well as addressing pathology. In these pages, positive neuropsychology is conceived of as broadening and enhancing the field, focusing on key areas such as studying and developing cognitive strengths, considering the importance of lifestyle factors on cognition, preventing cognitive dysfunction, compensating for deficits, and promoting cognitive health through education and technology. Chapters reveal not only the benefits of understanding cognitive health and optimal outcomes across the lifespan, but also emerging avenues for practitioners to expand their work into non-traditional settings. Among the topics featured:

  • Modifiable lifestyle factors that impact cognition through midlife.
  • Effects of coping strategies on outcomes in neurological disorders.
  • Promoting cognitive health through effective sports concussion management.
  • Use of innovative assessment and compensatory strategies to promote the executive functions.
  • Promoting psychosocial and cognitive wellness
in the workplace.
  • Lifestyle factors and successful cognitive aging in older adults.
  • Gerontechnology applications focused on promoting cognitive and general health.
  • Bringing new dimensions to the neuroscience, wellness, and positive psychology literatures, Positive Neuropsychology will interest a wide range of academics and clinicians, including neuropsychologists, geriatricians, health psychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, and other mental health and public health professionals.

    Review:

    “The book’s intent is to orient readers to this new perspective on research and practice. Nine chapters cover a range of important topics to meet this objective. ... This book will help readers adopt a broader view of what can be offered to clients with numerous presentations.” (Joseph N. Ricciardi, New England Psychologist, July, 2015)

    “This book covers the progress that has been made toward positive neuropsychology. ... Written by a host of well-regarded contributing authors, this book targets neuropsychologists. ... this book provides an adept look at how neuropsychological principles can and are being applied to improve quality of life in a preventive and positive manner.” (Christopher J. Graver, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2013)

    A vital and timely contribution to our field . . .

    Presents a compelling argument for our field’s ability to seriously address cognitive health as well as cognitive pathology . . .

    . . . Not only allows clinical neuropsychologists to immediately assist our primary care colleagues in improving health outcomes for their patients . . . but also lays a foundation for sharing this information with larger health systems and corporate structures with self-funded insurance plans that are interested in improving their m

    embers’ health and ability to work efficiently.

    From The Clinical Neuropsychologist, Vol 28, No. 2, 2014
