Drawing on case studies from the areas of neuropsychology as well as developmental, rehabilitation, and medical psychology, this book distills nearly 40 years of Dr. Judith Guedalia’s interventional styles—christened “Judi-isms” by the author—and highlights the intersection between psychology and Judaism. These interventional styles, as well as the remarkable case studies, are complemented by useful advice that readers at all levels of interest can incorporate into their own lives.


"Dr. Judith Guedalia has come out with a winner; stories that can be appreciated by the professional as well as the layman. . . . Readers of this book will delight in her unique style . . . and the wealth of information it contains.''  —Naomi Klass Mauer, associate publisher, Jewish Press

"Dr. Guedalia . . . consistently brings a fresh perspective to a variety of areas where psychology meets Jewish thought. I recommend this book to anybody who is interested in a unique blend of wisdom, humor, and insight into the human spirit."  —David Pelcovitz, PhD, Straus Chair in Psychology and Education, Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration, Yeshiva University  

"[T]he book is full of clever, insightful and interesting anecdotes and vignettes that can serve as guidelines for behavior towards God and Man."  —Professor Rabbi Avraham Steinberg, chairman, Ethics and Supervision Committee, Israeli Association for Pediatric Neurology

"Sensitivity, caring, wisdom, wit, trust, kindness, and many years of experience. Put them together and what do you get? A Neuropsychologist's Journal: Interventions and 'Judi-isms'. These are not just stories; they are teachings. But what a pleasant way to learn!"  —Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, MD, founder and medical director emeritus, Gateway Rehabilitation Center
