    APNA Certificate Program: Understanding the Brain-Behavior Connection

    With this three-module certificate program, apply an understanding of the biological processes behind human behavior to the psychiatric-mental health nursing care and treatment you provide. Over the course of these webinars (5 hours total), take a systematic look at the relationships between brain anatomy and physiology, human behavior, psychiatric disorders and symptoms, and tailored nursing interventions. You’ll gain a clearer understanding of the biological basis behind an individual’s reactions to their provider, their medication, their environment, and more, as well as a path forward for providing tailored nursing interventions that are supported by principles of neurobiology.

    • In Module I, you will learn about the 5 major brain functions and the 6 major ‘CAMPPS’ of psychiatric symptoms and diagnoses. Understanding these core functions will serve as the foundation for assessing key symptoms common to psychiatric disorders. 
    • In Module II, you will learn how the brain develops and how the major brain structures function. This will help you understand how to evaluate the interrelatedness of these structures and the resulting effects of any deficits on the 5 major brain functions.  
    • In Module III, you will explore research that depicts how the different parts of the brain are involved in various psychiatric diagnoses, including published brain scans that depict differences in the brains of individuals who live with various psychiatric disorders. Using case studies, we will discuss nursing interventions that are tailored to the specific deficits depicted in these brain scans.
