Explores diversity, culture, and ethnicity and their impact on neurological function
Features research-based evidence on the impact of Hispanic culture on brain-behavior relationships

Includes contributions from leading experts from the life and social sciences
The inaugural volume in the Issues of Diversity in Clinical Neuropsychology series, Principles of Neuropsychological Assessment with Hispanics sheds needed light on challenges specific to assessing members of this growing, diverse population. Beginning with evidence-based findings revealing intricate nonlinear relationships between culture and the brain, Antolin M. Llorente and a team of eight experts explore finely nuanced constructs of culture, ethnicity, race, and language among Hispanics in neurobehavioral and neurocognitive terms. The authors ably balance theory, research, and practical applications, and give ample space to ethical issues in the assessment of Latinos, indicating the ongoing need for bias-free procedures so that evaluations—and the treatment interventions that they generate—are accurate and valid.
In-depth coverage of:
Acculturation and assimilation
Language, bilingualism, and multilingualism
Cultural and ethnic identity
Patterns of migration and immigration
as they affect core practical areas, including:
Test development and norms
Psychopathology and rehabilitation.
Synthesizing the state of an evolving field and a highly heterogeneous subject group, this book is bound to appeal to a wide range of mental health professionals, including clinical neuropsychologists, clinical and educational psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and other mental health professionals.
