Review quote

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)
