Handbook of Rehabilitation Psychology
Robert G. Frank, Timothy R. Elliott
American Psychological Association, 2000 - Medical - 727 pages
With chronic health problems rising steadily, rehabilitation is expected to escalate to a major health care concern. This book is a ground breaking resource that captures the depth of this changing field by combining the traditional areas in rehabilitation, such as spinal cord injury, brain injury, and limb amputation, with new areas of expertise, such as neuroimaging, functional outcomes, and new models of rehabilitation. Since its emergence as a separate field over 40 years ago, rehabilitation psychology has expanded to include numerous disciplines. Accordingly, the handbook's coverage runs the gamut from clinical psychology and neuropsychology to social psychology and health policy and includes a list of acronyms and resources as well as a glossary. As scientist-practitioners, chapter authors cover chronic disease, injury, and disability, addressing contemporary practice, research, and policy issues.
