“This comprehensive and inspirational book ensures psychological care equals the importance of physical interventions to maximise quality of life poststroke. It is relevant to occupational therapy stroke clinicians, researchers and students, as well as being a valuable asset to multidisciplinary stroke services at all stages of the patient journey.” (British Journal of Occupational Therapy, 1 December 2012)
“Overall I found this a timely text that would be an excellent resource for anyone working in stroke services.” (The Psychologist, 1 January 2013)
“I offer my congratulations to the authors and my thanks on behalf of psychologists, stroke survivors, and their families.” (Psyccritiques, 5 September 2012)
This comprehensive reference book, written by a panel of experts in the field, should be on the bookshelf of everyone dealing with stroke patients. The needs of the patient and their family can only be fully understood if all professionals have genuine insight into the cognitive, emotional and communication problems arising as a consequence of stroke. There is also coverage of the social dimensions of stroke, which is of upmost importance for patients and care providers.

It is only recently that the wider clinical community has begun
to recognise the widespread and serious "invisible" consequences of
stroke. This book provides a timely and comprehensive summary of
psychological aspects of stroke management; ranging from
descriptions of the problems and their causes, through to the
theory and practice of management. The authors provide a refreshing
blend of theoretical text, clinical evidence and practical advice.
This will be an invaluable resource for clinical psychologists who
work with stroke patients, as well other disciplines specialising
in stroke rehabilitation.
—Peter Langhorne, Professor of Stroke Care, University of Glasgow, UK
