Minority and Cross-Cultural Psychology is more relevant now than ever in our society. Given the dramatic local and global changes occurring daily with regard to demographics, population changes, immigration issues, and the psychological and neuropsychological factors affecting these areas of study, this is fast becoming a respected and critical area of scientific study. Marry that with the fact that people of all cultures and racial groups are living longer (and now experiencing many of the age-related diseases and disorders), and one can easily see the need for additional work on issues related to neuropsychological assessment. This new edition brings to the forefront recent developments by experts in the area of neuropsychological assessment. Seasoned experts in the field offer up their newest projects in minority and cross-cultural aspects of neuropsychological assessment and are joined by new, up-and-coming professionals across a wide array of disciplines including psychology, medicine, and neuropsychology. As with the last book, this updated volume sheds light on the ever-growing need for adequate neuropsychological assessment to a wider subset of individuals, crossing many cultural and minority barriers in the process. The aim is to provide adequate neuropsychological assessment and, at the same time, to expand upon the growing need for such critical assessment.
