ABOUT ANPA

The American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA) is a non-profit organization of professionals in behavioral neurology, neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, and the clinical neurosciences. Established in 1988, ANPA has grown to over 500 members from around the world. ANPA's mission is to improve the lives of people with disorders at the interface of psychiatry and neurology.


WELCOME FROM THE PRESIDENT

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 content of the meeting focuses on brain-behavioral relationships and connecting those concepts to patient care. The meeting provides information 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, ANPA supports the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences (JNCN), our home scientific publication.

I want to invite those of you in the behavioral neurosciences, whether in clinical care, teaching, or research, to join our organization and to attend our annual meeting. For me, it has been an amazing 23+ years of having a true “professional home”. The mentorship, the forum for learning and continually improving my clinical skills, as well as the networking and professional relationships that I have received from ANPA has directly translated to better patient care and to my own personal growth as a clinician, teacher, and researcher. I am confident that those opportunities exist every day in ANPA for our all our members. In addition to the many advantages note above, members have access to educational slide sets for use in teaching their own trainees, patients, and communities, subscription to the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, membership in a multitude of subspecialty interest groups, opportunities for service and leadership, mentorship for early career members, Fellowship status, and ability to network with other like-minded clinicians and scientists in one’s regional area. It is really an exciting and forward-thinking group that always welcomes new members. Even if you are unsure yet of membership, please come to our annual meeting and see what we are all about first-hand.

Recently, there has been significant new information come to light on the importance of clinician self-care to avoid burnout, as well as the value that professional organizations bring to clinician wellness. ANPA provides a great venue for that professional self-care. Clinicians who practice good self-care more often avoid burnout, have better quality of care metrics, and are globally more happy in their careers.

As your ANPA president for the next two years, I am committed to continuing (1) to see that ANPA is truly considered the premier medical home for neuropsychiatry/behavioral neurology and (2) to continually seek those opportunities for our collective expertise to advance the standards of medical care for those suffering from neuropsychiatric disease/illness. As we (the members of ANPA) advance our understanding of the complexities of the human brain and its amazing relationships with cognition, behavior, and emotion, I believe we have the obligation to share that knowledge for the betterment of all patients suffering from these maladies.

In addition, I will continue to be forward-focused on opportunities to increase our standing in the medical community. The members of ANPA have an incredible wealth of knowledge and expertise that can better the lives of so many, and that sharing that knowledge is indeed our duty. I believe that one of my strengths is the ability to identify those opportunities for sharing and can make a difference. Furthermore, I am a firm believer that “it takes a village” and that no one person has all the answers – it is through team work, respect for all members and their contributions, and with a common goal that change for the better occurs. I will continue to echo those tenants noted above and to serve my fellow members, our organization, and most of all our patients to be best of my abilities. I am indeed grateful for this opportunity to serve in this capacity.

In summary, please contact us with any questions, look through our website and come join us at our next meeting.

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.
