Dr Ross Balchin's book wins the BPS book award
The BPS Book Award recognises excellent published work in psychology and is made jointly by the Research Board, the Education and Public Engagement Board, and the Professional Practice Board. The Practitioner text category is for titles that have 'made a significant impact in expounding and promulgating an evidence-based approach, to an area of practice of psychology'.
Working with Brain Injury provides a hands-on resource for the development of essential skills and competencies in clinical neuropsychology. On a very practical level it addresses a question frequently asked by students, trainees, interns, and newly qualified psychologists: what do I need to know in order to perform the everyday tasks involved in clinical neuropsychology? The authors distill, from a vast knowledge base, the practical skills and knowledge needed to lay the foundations for working with brain-injured patients, especially within the developed and developing world where time and resources are limited.
Dr Balchin is currently a researcher and Guest Lecturer in the Department of Psychology, where he is teaching the first year of the MA in Neuropsychology programme.
