The Neuropsychological Assessment of the Hispanic Client

  • Antolin M. Llorente
  • Deborah Weber
Part of the Issues of Diversity in Clinical Neuropsychology book series (ISSUESDIV)

The senior author remembers eagerly reading the book The Art of Loving (Fromm, 1956) for the first time as a teenager. In its Foreword, Dr. Fromm notes in its first sentence that “reading of this book would be a disappointing experience for anyone who expects easy instruction in the art of loving.” Unfortunately, the same disappointment is applicable to this chapter, in that the reader will quickly surmise the complexity involved in the neuropsychological assessment of the Hispanic client. This chapter, or this entire volume for that matter, is incapable of providing “easy instruction” in such an art.
