MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

This timely text examines normative and pathological brain/behavior connections across the male lifespan, and how these findings can best inform research, intervention, and prevention. It spotlights possible etiologies for male-dominated pathology, including academic deficits and disorders relating to violence, as well as identifying men's psychological resilience and vulnerabilities throughout life. Clinical and social issues are intricately linked here, particularly in areas such as substance abuse, emotion processing, and sequelae of brain trauma. In these ways, the text moves on from the simplistic view of males as the standard in psychological studies while respecting complicated questions about biology and environment that have yet to be resolved. Since the inception of psychology, much research has focused specifically on men but few studies have offered distinctive interventions developed to help this unique male population. This volume fills the chasm left from many seminal studies.

 

Among the featured topics:

 

·       Imaging and development: relevant findings in males.

·       Understanding the neuropsychology of autism spectrum disorders in men.

·       Understanding disorders of defiance, aggression, and violence in males.

·       Serving men with traumatic brain injuries.

·       Men at risk: special education and incarceration.

·       The neuropsychological basis of emotion and social cognition in men.

 

The Neuropsychology of Men offers neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, and rehabilitation specialists an evidence-based framework for understanding male-specific cognitive and behavioral trends in the normative population, and for identifying and addressing challenges in boys and men outside the norm.

 


Feature:

Focuses on the uniqueness of male behavior in such disorders as mental retardation and autism, and specific externalizing disorders

Neuropsychological perspective permits investigation into the cause of the male-dominated nature of specific conditions

Concludes with a summary of the uniqueness of male behavior
