"The book contains first-rate chapters by leaders in the field... The focus of this book is on evidence based practice, and this it does well...Civil Capacities in Clinical Neuropsychology is a book that is certain to advance the field." -- Jennifer Moye, PsycCritiques "...Civil Capacities is a major advance that is sure to become an essential text for those working in this area, including neuropsychologists, forensic psychologists, attorneys and judges." -- "This is a sorely needed compilation of topics related to civil capacities. It is the only publication where literature reviews, case studies, and practical applications are formulated into a coherent guide for almost any civil capacity evaluation encountered in clinical neuropsychology. No clinical neuropsychologist's shelf should be without this book and it should serve as a primer for intern and fellowship training in this area." --DOODY'S "...this is an essential text for the clinician. It clarifies basic assumptions, models, roles, and responsibilities, and it provides a rudimentary framework for conducting capacity evaluations. Furthermore, owing to the scientific blindspots it highlights, this text will also serve as a catalyst for subsequent research." -- Archives in Clinical Neuropsychology
