This is the long-awaited text on interdisciplinary treatment and assessment of, among other clinical topics, brain-derived behavioral, cognitive, and neurological disorders....

Gone is the unidimensional approach of the expert summarizing a topic from a single vantage point. Instead, the content shifts laterally, embracing not only interdisciplinary expertise, but an integrative way of thinking that transcends each discipline....What makes the Handbook so refreshing is that this cross pollination of ideas and approaches is more than novel theorizing. It offers clinicians a new way forward.
