Formal training in clinical neuropsychology introduces trainees to diverse patient populations with a variety of conditions and disorders. Learning to competently apply a structured, fact-finding approach to case conceptualization, differential diagnosis, and treatment planning is an essential goal at all levels of training. This approach provides a valuable exercise and method of examining practitioner competence. The structured approach to case analysis promotes good clinical decision making, and exercises based on such an approach can help prepare clinicians for the oral exams that are a part of board certification. The Neuropsychology Fact-Finding Casebook is a resource for both supervisors and trainees in clinical neuropsychology, as well as for clinicians preparing for board certification. The volume provides 24 compelling and diverse fact-finding cases, one for each month of a two-year residency. Each case is presented in a stepwise fashion: presenting problem and referral question, background information and patient report, behavioral observations, and test findings. At the end of each case, a summary, diagnostic impression, recommendations, and questions are provided to assess, reinforce, and teach core competencies; an outcome section describes what occurred after the full case evaluation is completed; and critical teaching points are discussed. This Casebook is a standardized approach to fact-finding that training programs at various levels can use to help trainees develop such evaluation skills.

“I am very pleased to see EPPP Fundamentals, a concise, compact presentation of essential information, that does not overwhelm the reader who is already feeling some anxiety about the upcoming exam. This is an effi cient alternative to expensive EPPP preparation courses, and is now at the top of my list of recommendations for our graduates.” Richard Tedeschi, PhD, Professor of Psychology, University of North Carolina-Charlotte This authoritative guide to the EPPP provides an affordable, concise, and comprehensive review of core exam content and includes over 300 sample questions.

Instead, it covers the eight content domains of the EPPP and their knowledge areas in a step-by-step, narrative, and review format. The book also includes contributions from the directors of top psychology training and internship programs in the United States. The combined approach of providing a comprehensive review from true content experts helps users gain the depth and breadth of knowledge required for passing the exam, and mirrors how doctoral-level courses are commonly taught. The review gives test-takers an orientation to the EPPP by covering the development and format of the exam along with successful test-taking strategies. Chapters covering EPPP content domains each include a comprehensive review of the material, key points to remember, sample questions and answers, and recommended readings for more in-depth study. Reflecting the test’s presentation, chapter authors cover each subject domain according to the ASPPB’s EPPP Information for Candidates Guide. Chapters are written by clinical supervisors and faculty directly involved in training interns, residents, and fellows in psychology. In addition to sample exam questions with answers in each chapter, a bonus section of 100 questions gives readers practice in taking this high-stakes test.

The purpose of this text is to provide an overview of basic business principles and how they can be used to enhance the stability and fiscal responsibility of neuropsychological practice. The principles discussed are are defined and information is provided to guide practical application of the concepts. The book is designed to benefit professionals at varying levels of practice regardless of their work setting, but focuses primarily on the issues related to neuropsychological practice. Graduate school catalogs and training program brochures reveal a broad array of educational opportunities designed to prepare future professionals for independent practice in neuropsychology. However, little is offered to prepare neuropsychologists for the business realities that await them in the workplace. The expectation that they will simply see patients and do quality clinical work is often in conflict with institutional goals of making money so that the doors can remain open. The result can be a cataclysmic "crash" when altruistic ideals meet capitalistic needs. The concepts of "cash is king" and "no margin, no mission" are foreign to most neuropsychologists until our own fiscal bottom line is affected. The Business of Neuropsychology also contains an overview of business "basics," such as budget and fiscal tracking, strategies for communicating with stakeholders in the business, front and back office flow and processes, billing, coding, marketing, referral relationship development, and staff growth and development. The Business of Neuropsychology is part of the Oxford AACN Workshop series.
