ABOUT ANPA

The American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA) is a non-profit organization of professionals in behavioral neurology, neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, and the clinical neurosciences.

WELCOME FROM THE PRESIDENT

  KALOYAN TANEV, MD, FANPA

Welcome to the American Neuropsychiatric Association’s (ANPA) website and to our community. ANPA’s vision is to be the professional home for clinicians, academicians, and researchers in neuropsychiatry, behavioral neurology, and behavioral neuroscience. Our core values include working together in a collegial and interdisciplinary fashion to provide a forum for learning, advancing knowledge of brain-behavior relations, and promoting excellent, scientific, and compassionate patient care. Annually, we produce a scientific meeting that provides high-value educational and networking opportunities to our attendees. The meeting focuses on the neuroscience of brain-behavioral relationships, and applying this knowledge to patient care. The meeting provides updates on the latest scientific breakthroughs in the conditions most commonly treated in neuropsychiatry/behavioral neurology, “hands-on” workshops for clinical examinations,  continuing medical education (CME), and maintenance of  certification (MOC) credits. In addition to the annual meeting, the ANPA supports the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences (JNCN), our home scientific publication.

Brief history of BNNP certification:

We live in historic times. In the late 18th-19th century, physicians identified as neurologists or psychiatrists based on their practice nature and location, not based on the mind-brain dichotomy. In the 20th century, US psychiatry diverged from both medicine and neurology based on the wide spread of psychoanalysis. However, the development of medical sciences in the 20th century, the development of psychopharmacology in the 1950s and 1960s, and the growth of neurosciences in the 1980s and 1990s laid the foundation for reunification of the parts of neurology and psychiatry that deal with brain-behavioral relationships. In the early 2000’s, the ANPA and the Society of Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology recognized this need for reunification and collaboratively applied for accreditation of a new neurological subspecialty, Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry (BNNP), to the United Council of Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS). The UCNS approved the application in 2004. Since then, practitioners obtain BNNP subspecialty certification through qualifying examinations, and BNNP fellowship programs have established unified training curricula. The BNNP subspecialty certification identifies practitioners possessing specific competencies to treat cognitive, emotional, and behavioral disturbances related to brain dysfunction.

The ANPA membership:

The ANPA membership comprises clinicians, educators, scientists, and members in training from several related areas – neuropsychiatry, behavioral neurology, neuroimaging, psychology, neuropsychology, neuroanatomy, basic neuroscience, rehabilitation, and allied health.

The ANPA is the village of BNNP practitioners, educators, and researchers.

The ANPA annual meeting is a high-quality, high-impact educational event. When I return from a meeting, I feel inspired by symposia that show new views through the kaleidoscope of brain anatomy, physiology, pathology, behavior, and symptoms.

The ANPA annual meeting is also a great networking opportunity. As a new member, I was amazed to be able to speak face-to-face with people who were editors of landmark textbooks in neuropsychiatry and behavioral neurology. Over the years, I have benefited from the mentorship of many ANPA members, have enjoyed getting to know BNNP colleagues, and have become friends with many.

Through its journal, publications of systematic reviews and expert opinions, and through the UCNS Certification Exam, the ANPA has established itself as The Organization setting the standards of neuropsychiatric care. Rightfully so. I believe that ANPA is one of the hidden gems in medicine. Although relatively small – about 1,000 members, it is influential on a national level. It feels like many more people should be interested in the work of our organization. Many physicians from neighboring specialties can benefit from ANPA’s programs and network.

My commitment to you for the next 2 years:

I will support the ANPA as a professional home to its members. ANPA has always offered high-quality educational programs and has been a professional network.

I will support growing membership involvement in the organization. Many members would like to contribute their energy and ideas to ANPA. Increasing member involvement would benefit ANPA, would widen the opportunity for members’ professional growth through participation, and would increase the organization’s network value.

I will reach out to organizations in neighboring fields to establish collaborations and to spread the word about ANPA’s value to their members. I will collaborate with the Executive and Membership Committees to create appropriate incentives to grow the membership of ANPA and expand our organization’s national and international influence.

I will collaborate with others to spread the message and excitement about neuropsychiatry and applied neurosciences to the next generation of clinicians-neuroscientists.

Please reach out to me with questions and ideas.

MISSION

To improve the lives of people with disorders at the interface of psychiatry and neurology

VISION

To transform recognition, understanding and treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders

WHAT IS NEUROPSYCHIATRY?

A scientific field

When used to refer to a scientific field, neuropsychiatry is the integrated study of psychiatric and neurologic disorders. This definition of neuropsychiatry does not connote a particular type of educational background or professional training; instead, it refers broadly and inclusively of the work performed any basic or clinical scientist, educator, clinician, public policy maker, or other individual that seeks to advance our understanding of the neurological bases of psychiatric disorders, the psychiatric manifestations of neurological disorders, and/or the evaluation and care of persons with neurologically based behavioral disturbances. In other words, one’s work can be neuropsychiatric regardless of whether one is trained as a neuropsychiatrist.

A medical subspecialty

When used to refer to a medical subspecialty, neuropsychiatry is one of the two historically separate but parallel clinical disciplines that comprise the medical subspecialty known currently as Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry. While the knowledge base and clinical skills of behavioral neurologists and neuropsychiatrists are built upon on the foundation established by primary training in one or both of these specialties, expertise and clinical competence in Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry requires experience specific to the evaluation, differential diagnosis, prognosis, pharmacological treatment, psychosocial management, and neurorehabilitation of persons with complex neuropsychiatric and neurobehavioral conditions.
