By Kira E. Armstrong, Dean W. Beebe, Robin C. Hilsabeck, Michael W. Kirkwood

The authors demystify the ABPP-CN board certification procedure and supply particular counsel, advice, ideas, and path for neuropsychologists able to pursue the diplomate prestige throughout the ABCN. The e-book enhances latest academic information regarding board certification, together with fabrics supplied via AACN workshops and the AACN examine advisor. all of the authors carry ABCN diplomate prestige, having effectively navigated the method in the final 5 years, and are complete educators who've informed and mentored a number of colleagues, from graduate scholars and post-doctoral fellows to specialist friends. also they are founding participants and a part of the management council for 'Be prepared for ABPP in Neuropsychology' (BRAIN), a firm devoted soley to facilitating crowning glory of the ABPP-CN certification technique via useful scientific neuropsychologists. The authors are therefore uniquely certified to supply crucial suggestion approximately this very likely intimidating procedure with empathy, knowledge, and humor.

Sample text

Some people, especially those who spend lots of time in their cars, also find it valuable to record mnemonics or other information and play it back during their commute or travels (“On my cue, kids: the wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round . . and, cranial nerve IV moves the eyes in and down, in and down”). Steps to Success: Managing Examination Preparation Given the vastness of the content covered in the study materials, trying to figure out where to begin can be daunting. Like any other complex task, we think it is easiest to just break things down into steps and then put one foot in front of the other.

For example, because brain-behavior relationships are less likely to yield “classic” syndromes in children than in adults, pediatric and child clinical neuropsychologists often spend much more of their professional time considering developmental, functional, and contextual issues. The minutia of neuroanatomy knowledge, especially for those who deal primarily with neurodevelopmental conditions, can slowly fade due to disuse. Consequently, child-oriented clinicians may need to focus their ABCN preparations a bit more on functional neuroanatomy, and yes, they will need to learn about dementing processes that may not directly relate to their daily clinical work.

This is an intentional choice that was made for several reasons. First, the field is constantly evolving, limiting the “shelf life” of these kinds of study materials. Second, study outlines are already available for free on the BRAIN web site. The BRAIN materials are not perfect, but they have been good enough for dozens of clinical neuropsychologists to become board certified, including the four of us. In fact, over the past few years, about 50% to 75% of each cohort completing the ABPP/ABCN process has received support and resources from BRAIN.
