As medical science continues to progress, so does the field of rehabilitation psychology. Since its publication in 2000, the first edition of the Handbook of Rehabilitation Psychology has become the most influential book covering the principles and practices of the specialty. This second edition updates and significantly revises the original text to account for fast-paced developments in the field. Over one third of the chapters are new, including several on developmental issues and risk factors for children with severe illness or injuries. Reflecting the ever-expanding scope of rehabilitation psychology, this handbook covers diverse topics such as the clinical conditions most common to rehabilitation psychology (spinal cord injury, limb amputation, traumatic brain injury, stroke, and more), assessment and clinical interventions, neuroimaging, alcohol and substance abuse, vocational rehabilitation, assistive technology for cognitive impairments, ethics, spirituality, and the problems of family caregivers. With its unparalleled breadth of coverage, the Handbook of Rehabilitation Psychology, Second Edition, will serve the needs of psychologists, physicians, nurses, psychiatrists, rehabilitation therapists, and a variety of other health care practitioners and researchers as well as graduate students in these fields. --BOOK JACKET.
