About this book

Introduction

The Neuropsychology of Women

Edited by Elaine Fletcher-Janzen, Private Practice, Cleveland

The male brain has traditionally set the standard in the neuroscientific literature, whether the topic was normal development or pathological conditions; yet complex factors contribute to women having assessment and treatment needs apart from those of men. The current volume in the Diversity in Clinical Neuropsychology series, The Neuropsychology of Women is the first resource to focus exclusively on these factors.

The contributing panel of neuropsychologists and researchers offers the reader a thorough grounding in female brain functioning in developmental, cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and pathology contexts while also raising and addressing significant questions about socioeconomic variables that frequently result in compromised care. A deeper awareness of these data enhances readers’ clinical knowledge, leading to more accurate assessment and diagnosis, suitably tailored interventions, and better treatment outcomes in these chapter areas:

  • Traumatic brain injury.
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
  • Learning disabilities.
  • Eating disorders.
  • Seizure disorders.
  • Psychopathological conditions.

The Neuropsychology of Women is a major step forward in the cultural competence literature, deserving of a wide audience among neuropsychologists (hospital-based, academic, private practice), clinical psychologists, and rehabilitation professionals.
