Introduction

In July 2015 EFPA established a Task Force on Clinical Neuropsychology (decision General Assembly in Milano). The TF will complete its task in 2015-17 and present its report with recommendations to EFPA General Assembly in July 2017 in Amsterdam.

The tasks are:

1) to analyze the situation of the field of clinical neuropsychology in Europe

2) to collect information on the current situation on the specialization training within clinical neuropsychology in the different countries of Europe - both in the universities and in the clinical practice.

3) to collect information on the legal and professional status of clinical neuropsychologists within the profession of psychologists in different European countries.

4) to present the information and best examples to the EFPA Member Associations.

5) to make recommendations as how the specialization training in neuropsychology can and/or should be developed in the future.

The first TF meeting in February 2016 agreed that the goals are best met by conducting a survey to the member countries. Results will be presented to the General Assebly in Amsterdam 2017. Recommendations for the way forward will be based on the results.
