Positive Neuropsychology: Evidence-Based Perspectives on Promoting Cognitive Health (Paperback)John J. Randolph (editor)
- We can order this
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.

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 members' health and ability to work efficiently.
