The APA Handbook of Dementia addresses assessment, comorbidity, evaluation, and treatment of various forms of dementia. The handbook reviews common dementias including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, and other less common dementias. It is organized into sections discussing diagnosis, epidemiology, and neurobiology (including neuropathology and neuroimaging); assessment, including cultural issues, methodology, and neuropsychology; and primary, secondary, and tertiary intervention strategies.
The Handbook is edited in-chief by Glenn E. Smith, PhD, the Elizabeth Faulk Professor and chair of the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology at the University of Florida and Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine.
Dr. Rod Swenson and other members from the Consortium for the Examination of Neuropsychological Data in Aging (CENDA) contributed a chapter to this handbook entitled "Neuropsychological Evaluation for Vascular Dementia".
