"In Neuropsychological Practice with Veterans, Dr. Shane S. Bush provides a multifaceted overview of neuropsychological assessments and treatments associated with war veterans who have suffered from traumatic brain injury (TBI) during their service." – Somatic Psychotherapy Today

Traumatic brain injury (TBI), afflicting approximately one third of injured veterans returning from duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, is considered the signature injury in these conflicts. In addition to TBI, symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and major depression often afflict these veterans and contribute to neurological symptoms. This is the first volume to provide a comprehensive overview of neuropsychologically grounded assessment, treatment, training, and trends for clinicians who work with this population.

Encompassing the writings of clinicians and researchers experienced in working with the Veterans Administration (VA) population, the book is grounded in an understanding of the unique culture of the veteran with its specialized service delivery methods and procedures. In addition to its focus on veterans with TBI, the text also addresses the assessment and treatment of aging veterans of previous military conflicts and of combat and non-combat veterans with neurological and emotional problems related to aging, substance abuse, HIV/hepatitis, psychiatric disorders, and other problems.

Key Features:

  • Addresses the growing need for neuropsychological assessment and treatment of returning veterans as well as aging veterans of earlier conflicts
  • Focuses on traumatic brain injury, posttraumatic stress disorder, and major depression
  • Discusses assessment of malingering (faking); benefits, pension, return-to-work evaluations; polytrauma management; and training concerns
  • Written by clinicians and researchers experienced in working with veterans
  • Edited by a neuropsychology specialist who is well known in the VA community
