Clinical neuropsychologists frequently evaluate individuals within a forensic context, and therefore must address questions regarding the possible presence of reduced effort, response bias and/or malingering. This volume offers a wide range of instructive real-world case examples involving the complex differential diagnosis where symptom exaggeration and/or malingering cloud the picture.
Written by expert forensic neuropsychologists, the scenarios described provide informed, empirically-based and scientifically-derived opinions on the topic. Issues related to malingering, such as response bias and insufficient effort, are discussed thoroughly with regard to a large number of clinical conditions and assessment instruments. Test data and non-test information are considered and integrated by the numerous experts.
Expert guidance for clinicians who must address the issue of malingering is provided in a straightforward and well-organized format. To date, there has not been a comparable collection of rich case material relevant to forensic practice in clinical neuropsychology.

"The Neuropsychology of Malingering Casebook provides a wealth of additional features such as discussions of statistical and measurement matters, ethical and professional concerns, perspectives from those outside of the profession, and numerous invaluable appendices. The clinical neuropsychologist who is frequently engaged in professional work in which malingering is a common question will likely want to read this book cover-to-cover. For those neuropsychologists who face questions of malingering less often, this book will serve as an excellent reference that they undoubtedly will want on their shelf." - Thomas J. Deters, Harvard Medical School, in The Clinical Neuropsychologist
"The case study format using real forensic examinees to illustrate the complexities of effort evaluation in neuropsychological testing is utterly captivating and highly effective... Not only is it exceedingly informative, it is a fascinating and entertaining read that makes the reader critically consider one’s own approach to effort evaluation. ... The Neuropsychology of Malingering Casebook provides essential knowledge and would be an excellent addition to the library of every neuropsychologist in active practice." - Bernice Marcopulos, Ph.D. ABPP-CN, in JINS, the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
