• Develop a treatment prevention plan for suicidal patients based on this model
• Explain the underlying neurobiology that characterizes depressed patients at risk for suicidal behavior.
• Discuss neuroimaging and potential biomarker findings for suicidal behavior
• Discuss the potential psychologic and psychiatric complications of prescription medications
• Recognize medical prescription drugs that can cause depression, anxiety, psychosis or mania as a side effect.
• Discuss how all neurologic diseases are associated with psychiatric symptoms, and how all psychiatric disorders have neurologic underpinnings.
• Outline the association between metabolic disorders and brain structural changes
• Delineate dimensions of psychopathology linked to metabolic disturbances
• Describe how treatments in psychiatry may facilitate or aggravate brain health through metabolic pathways.
• Describe the gut microbiome-brain connection and the factors that affect it in neuropsychiatry.
• Discuss the processes by which the microbiome and gut-brain axis are operative in neuropsychiatric disorders
• Describe the evidence from clinical studies regarding the efficacy of adjunctive therapies that modulate the microbiome, such as probiotics, prebiotics, and diet

• Identify the spectrum of treatment modalities for sleep disorders and integrate practice guidelines for their treatment
• Discuss the bidirectional relationship between sleep disorders and psychiatric disorders.

• Discriminate between Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) and Alzheimer disease
• Recognize the transition to dementia in Parkinson’s disease.
• Understand which treatments should be avoided in LBD
• Identify pharmacologic treatments to help manage neuropsychiatric symptoms in dementing conditions
• Discuss the research on emerging treatments for depression and treatment-resistant depression.
• Explain the physiological mechanism by which onabotulinum toxin injections may modulate a brain circuit that regulates mood.
• Discuss current knowledge regarding the neuroanatomic and neurobiologic underpinnings of BPD

This highly practical, educational meeting will offer brain-behavior in an interactive, learning-focused format. Participants can earn up to 19 CME/CE Credits, including workshop credit, and obtain your entire year's ABPN Self-Assessment (SA) Requirement, plus credit towards their Maintenance of Certification (MOC).

Our nationally renowned faculty will present recent advances and emerging trends in the assessment, treatment and monitoring of patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. The clinical emphasis on neuropsychiatry will be the focus throughout.

As always, our meeting offers an outstanding opportunity for peer-to-peer learning and networking. With question and answers allotted for every session, there is ample time to share best practices and find solutions to your most difficult clinical challenges.

AACP is the national association which, in conjunction with CURRENT PSYCHIATRY, produces the Focus on Neuropsychiatry and the Psychiatry Updates in Chicago and Las Vegas, which attract more than 1,000 clinicians annually.

I look forward to seeing you in Washington, DC for a tour de force of the brain-mind continuum!!
