(from the website):
The Society for Neuropsychology (Gesellschaft für Neuropsychologie or GNP) was founded in 1986 as a scientific organization of German speaking neuropsychologists working in research, in clinical areas, in the pharmaceutical industry and in forensics. At present the GNP has over 1.500 members.
One of its main objectives is to provide guidelines for postgraduate education and quality control in the area of clinical neuropsychology. Thus the GNP has set up a curriculum and provides certification services for qualified individuals as well as accreditation procedures for courses and training institutions.
The GNP holds annual scientific meetings; its task forces work on the development and improvement of diagnostic and therapeutic materials; regional and special interest groups meet regularly and support the continuing education of the membership.
The GNP also publishes the journal "Zeitschrift für Neuropsychologie" and various informational material for neuropsychologists and lay persons.
