NAN Book Series
The new National Academy of Neuropsychology
Book Series on Evidenced-Based Practice is an exciting direction for NAN. It
is derived from the recognition of the need for accessible materials focusing
on empirical evidence aimed at improving the quality of informed clinical decision
The Series aims to provide to the NAN membership and others thorough and accurate
resources directly applicable to the everyday needs and demands of clinical
neuropsychology, and that are presented in a meaningful and accessible way,
offering the latest knowledge based on the most recent and rigorous scientific
evidence within the field.
Oxford University Press (OUP), one of the most renowned and respected publishing
companies in existence, was selected by the NAN Board of Directors to manage
and distribute the Series. OUP has committed to the long-term development and
support of the NAN Series and the provision of the finest quality venue for
the success of the Series.
The Series is designed to be a dynamic and ever-growing set of resources for
the science-based clinical neuropsychologist. As such, the volumes are intended
to individually focus on specific significant areas of neuropsychological inquiry
in depth, and together cover the majority of the broad clinical area of neuropsychology.
This is a challenging endeavor, and one which relies on the foremost experts
in the neuropsychological field to provide their insight, knowledge, and interpretation
of the empirically-supported evidence within each focused topic.
Each volume is intended to provide an exhaustive review of their respective
topic, yet there are a number of constants across the volumes including a commitment
to providing evidence-based information, maintaining a consistent format, the
provision of information directly and readily usable to the clinical neuropsychologist
in everyday practice, and the provision of information in such a way as to
make it accessible as a "pull off the shelf" resource. Finally, each volume
is designed to work within a pedagogical strategy that educates and informs
the knowledgeable neuropsychologist and providing meaningful (i.e., read "useful")
information geared toward enhancing the practice of neuropsychology.
keeping with the educational focus of the Series, Series contributors work
with the NAN Education Committee so that continuing education credit may
