The Boston Process Approach

A Brief History and Current Practice

Part of the Critical Issues in Neuropsychology book series (CINP)


The Boston process approach to clinical neuropsychological assessment embodies a philosophical ideal concerning the optimal means of examining patients with suspected brain damage or cognitive disabilities. The term “process” was applied to the approach by its founder and earliest proponent, Edith Kaplan, during her tenure at the Boston Veterans Administration Hospital. A great deal of the impetus and basis of methods applied to the approach arose from investigators in the fields of aphasiology and behavioral neurology with whom Kaplan worked on clinical assessment and research at the Boston VA throughout the 1960s to 1990s. Efforts by Kaplan, her colleagues in these fields, and students trained in the process approach have resulted in a tradition of formal test measures, techniques for qualitative observation of test behavior, and clinical interpretation. This tradition has been extensively applied to both assessment of individual patients and research methodology throughout the world and continues to represent the predominant approach to neuropsychological assessment used in the Boston area. In addition, many of the tests developed based on the tradition are used by practitioners who primarily employ techniques emanating from other neuropsychological traditions.
