Psychology and many of its subfields have seen a significant shift over the past 10-12 years toward a focus on hope, positive attributes, and character strengths through the positive psychology movement. This book provides a blueprint for a burgeoning subfield in neuropsychology-positive neuropsychology. It proposes an alternative, evidence-based perspective on neuropsychology that incorporates positive psychology principles and a focus on promotion of cognitive health. It synthesizes existing research and provides novel perspectives on promotion of cognitive health in clinical, nonclinical, and academic settings. This work is a resource and reference for neuropsychologists, allied professionals, and students who see the critical role neuropsychologists can play in maintaining, promoting, and being mindful of cognitive health.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book's intent is to orient readers to this new perspective on research and practice. Nine chapters cover a range of important topics to meet this objective. ... This book will help readers adopt a broader view of what can be offered to clients with numerous presentations." (Joseph N. Ricciardi, New England Psychologist, July, 2015)

"This book covers the progress that has been made toward positive neuropsychology. ... Written by a host of well-regarded contributing authors, this book targets neuropsychologists. ... this book provides an adept look at how neuropsychological principles can and are being applied to improve quality of life in a preventive and positive manner." (Christopher J. Graver, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2013)

A vital and timely contribution to our field . . .

Presents a compelling argument for our field's ability to seriously address cognitive health as well as cognitive pathology . . .

. . . Not only allows clinical neuropsychologists to immediately assist our primary care colleagues in improving health outcomes for their patients . . . but also lays a foundation for sharing this information with larger health systems and corporate structures with self-funded insurance plans that are interested in improving their m

embers' health and ability to work efficiently.
