Summary

This groundbreaking volume provides a theoretical overview and clinical guidelines for the application of neuropsychotherapy. It takes a multidisciplinary approach, combining neuropsychological knowledge with recent conceptualizations from neuroscience and psychotherapy, with special emphasis on the role of working alliance.

The first part of the book focuses on the historical roots of neuropsychotherapy. Then, a framework of interpersonal process in neuropsychotherapy and conceptualization for clinical purposes are described. Resistance is described through a historical perspective of conceptualizations to the present-day demands of understanding this phenomenon in the process of neuropsychotherapy. In addition, the neuropsychology of emotions is presented in a therapeutic process through a case intervention.

The latter chapters of the book are concerned with special interest interventions and psychotherapeutic working methods suited for neuropsychotherapy.

Representing a wide variety of theoretical, research oriented, clinical neuropsychological and psychotherapeutic expertise, this book will interest professionals in neuropsychological rehabilitation and those working with patients with cognitive, emotional and behavioral disorders in in-patient and out-patient settings.
