Minority and cross-cultural psychology is more relevant now than ever in our diverse world. Given the dramatic local and global changes occurring daily with regard to demographics, population changes, and immigration issues, minority and cross-cultural psychology is fast becoming a respected and critical area of scientific study. Pair that with the fact that people of all cultures and racial groups are living longer and experiencing age-related diseases and disorders, one can easily see the need for additional work on issues related to neuropsychological assessment. This new edition brings to the forefront recent developments by seasoned experts in the field. They offer up their newest projects in minority and cross-cultural aspects of neuropsychological assessment and are joined by new, up-and-coming professionals across a wide array of disciplines including psychology, medicine, and neuropsychology. Like the first edition, this updated collection sheds light on the ever-growing need for adequate neuropsychological assessment to a wider subset of individuals, crossing many cultural and minority barriers in the process. Continuously pushing the boundaries of neuropsychological assessment, this collection is essential reading for cognitive and clinical psychologists, and neuropsychologists, and a model text for advanced courses dealing with minority and cross-cultural issues.

La psicología comunitaria estudia el comportamiento humano en sus contextos sociales más próximos, comunitarios, y cómo personas y comunidades se influyen mutuamente; pero es, sobre todo, una praxis innovadora que busca el desarrollo personal y la prevención y atención a la problemática psicosocial moderna con raíces socioambientales (adicciones, fracaso escolar, marginalidad, desvinculación social, desintegración familiar, etc.). Esta disciplina, además de tratar los problemas psicosociales (el malestar del bienestar), propone alternativas coherentes y esperanzadas al clima de desaliento, fragmentación, hiperindividualismo y egoísmo interesado que atenaza el nuevo siglo. Esta obra describe con detalle y claridad los conceptos, valores y enfoques de trabajo relativos a la psicología comunitaria, junto con los datos contextuales e históricos que dibujan el surgimiento del campo y sus variantes territoriales.
