Assessment in Rehabilitation and Health is the first and only text tailored specifically for students seeking a structured foundation of knowledge of tests and related assessment practices commonly used by health professionals in their various fields. While other textbooks commonly used in this area of study often offer a broader and more sweeping look at assessment practices and theories, Assessment in Rehabilitation and Health focuses closely on the standardized and clinical methods of health assessment in regards to rehabilitation counseling, communication and speech disorders, occupational therapy, neuropsychology, physiotherapy, and physical medicine. Each chapter is structured using the common framework provided by the World Health Organization's International Classification of Disability, Functioning and Health (ICF). This framework, which is considered the gold standard by numerous health institutions around the world in regards to concepts and practices in rehabilitation and health, allows students to gain knowledge and learn practices that are consistent with this widely accepted and highly regarded ICF model. These chapters not only follow this framework, but are also all organized to include the following topics: professional and legal definitions and theories that form the foundation for assessment methods; a brief history of the research and practice methods pertinent to each chapter topic; a listing of assessment methods commonly used in rehabilitation and health related practices; and a discussion of cultural, legislative, and professional issues that impact the use of the specific assessment methods.

Folk Devils and Moral Panics

'Richly documented and convincingly presented' -- New Society Mods and Rockers, skinheads, video nasties, designer drugs, bogus asylum seeks and hoodies. Every era has its own moral panics. It was Stanley Cohen’s classic account, first published in the early 1970s and regularly revised, that brought the term ‘moral panic’ into widespread discussion. It is an outstanding investigation of the way in which the media and often those in a position of political power define a condition, or group, as a threat to societal values and interests. Fanned by screaming media headlines, Cohen brilliantly demonstrates how this leads to such groups being marginalised and vilified in the popular imagination, inhibiting rational debate about solutions to the social problems such groups represent. Furthermore, he argues that moral panics go even further by identifying the very fault lines of power in society. Full of sharp insight and analysis, Folk Devils and Moral Panics is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand this powerful and enduring phenomenon. Professor Stanley Cohen is Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the London School of Economics. He received the Sellin-Glueck Award of the American Society of Criminology (1985) and is on the Board of the International Council on Human Rights. He is a member of the British Academy.
