About the Author:

Dr. Judith Bendheim Guedalia is the director of the neuropsychology unit at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. She is a licensed psychologist and a certified school psychologist and a certified assessor of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule. She has authored several peer-reviewed journal articles in the area of neuropsychology as well as on Judaism and psychology and writes a monthly column for the Jewish Press.

Review:

''Dr. Judith Guedalia has come out with a winner; stories that can be appreciated by the professional as well as the layman. Many of these stories originally appeared as articles by Judi, on the pages of The Jewish Press, including our introduction to Chaim K. Seeing the book in print is the culmination of a dream shared by many of her friends. Readers of this book will delight in her unique style...the name alone, Judi-isms, gives a glimpse of that...and the wealth of information it contains. Over the years Dr. Guedalia has worn 'many hats' but adding 'Author' to her long list of achievements is the 'crown' on top.'' --Naomi Klass Mauer, Associate Publisher, The Jewish Press

''Dr. Judith Guedalia's A Neuropsychologist's Journal: Interventions and ''Judi-isms'' is a fascinating and far-ranging book that shares her knowledge and experiences working on the front lines of Israel society during times of war and peace. From the perspective of her decades of work as the director of Shaare Zedek Medical Center's Neuropsychology Unit, Dr. Guedalia conveys her wisdom on a wide range of topics ranging from resilience in the face of family conflict, to coping with illness, loss and trauma. A number of chapters introduce the reader to an array of Biblical topics with Dr. Guedalia's signature creativity regarding psychological and Jewish wisdom. She consistently brings a fresh perspective to a variety of areas where psychology meets Jewish thought. I recommend this book to anybody who is interested in a unique blend of wisdom, humor and insight into the human spirit.'' --David Pelcovitz, Ph.D., Professor, Straus Chair in Psychology and Education, Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration, Yeshiva University

''Judi-isms are very special anecdotes from a very special personality. I have known Dr. Judith Bendheim Guedalia for several decades as a very capable neuropsychologist, a dynamic personality, a woman with a sharp and critical eye yet very empathic and sympathetic. On reviewing Dr. Guedalia's book I discovered yet another attribute of hers, namely her literary capabilities. In the many short anecdotes and descriptions one can detect Dr. Guedalia's empathy and love for a great variety of people and issues: patients, patients' families, students, co-workers, the land of Israel, the Torah and last but not least - her own family. The almost poetic descriptions of patients, situations and events are well characterized by ''Judi-ism'' - her deep insight as a psychologist, yet her great devotion and willingness to effectuate her expertise to help people in distress and in need. The Torah-vignettes are interesting and innovative, adding new psychological dimensions to the Biblical stories and personalities. In short, the book is full of clever, insightful and interesting anecdotes and vignettes that can serve as guidelines for behavior towards G-d and Man.''
-Professor Rabbi Avraham Steinberg
Chairman of the Ethics and Supervision Committee of the Israeli Assn. for Pediatric Neurology and winner of the Israel Prize

''Sensitivity, caring, wisdom, wit, trust, kindness and many years of experience. Put them together and what do you get? A Neuropsychologist's Journal: Interventions and ''Judi-isms.'' Dr. Judith Bendheim Guedalia, Director of Neuropsychology at Jerusalem's Shaare Zedek Hospital, is the only person in the world who could provide us with such brilliant, heart-warming and inspiring personal experiences. These are not just stories; they are teachings. But what a pleasant way to learn!'' --Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, MD, Founder, Medical Director Emeritus, Gateway Rehabilitation Center
