Description - Cross-Cultural Neuropsychological Assessment by Victor Nell
This is aimed at neuropsychologists who are called upon to assess culturally different clients. In Minneapolis as in Oslo, migrant and refugee minorities raise assessment and test validity problems that cannot be ignored. Suburbs and workplaces that were culturally and linguistically homogenous a few years ago are no longer. In the developing countries of the southern hemisphere, the problems are pervasive and demand a solution even more imperatively. To deal realistically with the problem of doing neuropsychological assessment without norms, the author describes the principles of a "behavioural neuropsychology", and then sets out interview, test and interpretation methods that should allow clinicians to produce valid and prognostically accurate assessments.
