While there are many excellent texts addressing cognitive impairment and behavioural difficulties and on rehabilitation associated with traumatic brain injury, few textbooks specifically address the most common emotional problems that can have such an adverse effect on rehabilitation and outcome. Uniquely this book deals exclusively with the identification and psychotherapeutic management of mood and anxiety disorders after traumatic brain injury. Furthermore, a systematic approach to identifying and diagnosing anxiety and mood disorders is followed throughout the text.

As well as providing an introduction to anxiety and mood disorders after traumatic brain injury, it provides a psychological perspective on their evolution and management. It is aimed at a range of professionals in training (or those responsible for providing training in psychopathology, neuropsychology and psychotherapy), as well as those who may have an interest in working with the type of patients with anxiety or depression, commonly seen in post-acute brain injury rehabilitation settings. Case studies, summaries and suggested references for further reading are used throughout to facilitate understanding and teaching where relevant.

Reviews and Endorsements

'This timely, well-structured and informative book will be an invaluable resource for psychologists and clinicians working with brain injured patients who aim to overcome the divide between psychopathology, neuropsychology and neurorehabilitation.'
- Dr Birgit Gur, Chartered Clinical Psychologist/Neuropsychologist, Neuropsychology Service, Dorset HealthCare NHS Foundation Trust

'I wish this book had already been published before I gave my last course in neuropsychology. It is refreshing to see a book on neuropsychology emphasizing the importance of clinical assessment, and one that provides an appreciation of the dynamic interplay of mood, personality and loss in traumatic brain injury.'
- Dr Helena Thornton, Senior Clinical Psychologist/Lecturer, Valkenburg Hospital & University of Cape Town

'At last, a comprehensive and readable clinical text on the treatment of anxiety disorders after acquired brain injury. Rudi Coetzer's new book is not only an excellent introductory primer in the field but is also a wonderful depository of informative and relevant case studies for the experienced practitioner. Lucid and well researched throughout, I would heartily recommend this scholarly text.'
- Dr Gavin Newby, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist, Acquired Brain Injury Service for South Cheshire

'A book not only for the brain injury expert, but a must-have for the multi-disciplinary team that cares for the brain injured patient. Written in a conversational, but informative, style which will suit the student and the clinician that deals with the injured brain and behaviour. These would include allied health professionals, psychologists, psychiatrists and rehabilitation specialists.'
- Dr Johann Claassen, Associate Professor in Psychiatry, QEII Medical Centre, the University of Western Australia
