Understanding Somatization in the Practice of Clinical Neuropsychology


Understanding Somatization in the Practice of Clinical Neuropsychology is written for neuropsychologists who wish to improve their ability to diagnose and treat, or recommend treatment for, patients with somatoform disorders. The author, a seasoned clinician, blends evidence-based recommendations with sound practical advice within a conceptual framework that helps neuropsychologists to understand and engage these challenging patients. A Continuing Education (CE) component administered by the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology is included, as is access to the author's workshop presentation materials. The book will be of interest to those who work with or wish to gain insight into somatizing patients - neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, neurologists; post-doctoral fellows; graduate psychology students; and neuropsychologists who want to earn Continuing Education (CE) credit.

In The Press

"Dr. Lamberty's primer is a well-written and concise overview of somatization that can serve to help the field of neuropsychology get 'up to speed' regarding this ubiquitous but poorly understood phenomenon."--Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology
"This book maintains the high standard of the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology series and provides an enlightening study of the difficult challenge of somatoform disorders. Readers delving into the material will acquire an empathic understanding of these patients and gain valuable insights into their management, especially during post-evaluation follow-up."--Doody's, a 5-star review!
"The author has been able to create a work of interest to clinicians looking to gain a new perspective on difficult to diagnose patients, yet, it is scholarly enough to highly recommend this volume to trainees seeking to further understand the relationship between brain and behavior. Since it seems unlikely that one would never encounter the influence of somatization in a clinical setting, this book would be of value to all practicing clinicians."--Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
