dc.description.abstractThe aim of this chapter is to present relevant cultural aspects that a neuropsychologist should take into account in order to provide adequate service to Spanish patients and their families. In the first section, there is an introduction to the Spanish culture, which is linked to small case studies that reflect its relevance from a neuropsychological point of view. Spain is culturally complex, with different regions that maintain their own traditions and languages. For Spaniards, social relationships and family are so important that patients may prioritize some rehabilitation goals against others in order to recover their social functioning. Likewise, the complex relationship between languages and education is presented, as well as the educational and socioeconomic level of the country. In the second section, the importance of social relationships and the role of the family in the neuropsychological assessment and rehabilitation, as well as the context in which the patient lives, are explored closely through RJ case. Finally, the chapter ends with a summary of the most relevant ideas to consider when assessing a Spanish patient.en
