Combining scientific expertise with psychotherapeutic acumen, this book is highly accessible and packed with clinical examples. Part I provides essential information on how brain damage affects emotional functioning. Part II describes practical, specially tailored ways to treat anxiety, depression, and anger related to acquired brain injury, and to help patients regain a sense of meaning and value in their lives. The book shows how standard psychotherapeutic interventions can be adapted for the brain-injured population, as well as which approaches may be contraindicated. It presents a biopsychosocial framework for assessment and treatment that integrates emotional support, cognitive-behavioral techniques, and acceptance- and mindfulness-based strategies.

“The limited utility of traditional psychotherapy for brain injury survivors leads most clinicians to only superficially address important emotional, social, and behavioral injury sequelae. This valuable book equips readers with practical techniques to better help survivors manage anxiety, depression, and anger, while learning to accept their new reality and rebuild their lives in meaningful ways. The senior author, Ruff, is a rare neuropsychologist who is as committed to psychotherapy as he is to assessment. He shares clinical wisdom acquired over three decades in a text that will become an integral part of our rehabilitation neuropsychology training program.”

—Richard Wanlass, PhD, Chief Psychologist/Clinical Professor, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, University of California, Davis, Medical Center

“Ruff and Chester show that helping patients with acquired brain injury effectively cope with their post-injury emotional problems is as important as any service clinical neuropsychologists provide. This resource will be helpful in the training of clinical neuropsychologists and other clinicians. It offers clear information on the neuroanatomy of emotional control, as well as describing in some detail what patients experience when their neuropsychological recovery is incomplete. The authors provide many useful suggestions for conducting psychotherapy with these patients.”

—George P. Prigatano, PhD, ABPP, Emeritus Chair of Clinical Neuropsychology, Barrow Neurological Institute
