This is an up-to-date guide to ethical decision making in the daily practice of clinical neuropsychology that includes a Continuing Education (CE) component administered by the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology. Emphasizing positive ethics, the book models a decision-making process by which practitioners can successfully resolve common ethical challenges. It is organized around the Ethical Standards of the American Psychological Association, each of which is systematically applied to neuropsychology and brought to life through extensive case studies that show the ethical decision-making model in action. (The book contains a total of 27 cases.) The book reflects the most recent published ethical, professional, and legal requirements and guidelines and synthesizes the latest research. Graduate students, those preparing for board certification, and even experienced clinical neuropsychologists will find much here that is useful; it will be especially valuable neuropsychologists who do forensic work. Those who wish to earn CE credit after reading the book are directed to a test on the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology website.
