Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures: A Guide (Paperback)
You've just been told that those seizures you've been having for months or years and that have been making a mess of your life aren't actually due to epilepsy and that instead they are caused by psychological stress. Maybe you're discharged from the hospital by your neurologist with a name and a number of a mental health professional who can start treating you, but too often you leave the hospital with nothing other than the name of your disorder: psychogenic non-epileptic seizures. When you search for information and professional help, it's terribly hard to find. This book is directed at patients, loved ones and mental health professionals and is an invaluable resource that explains the elements that make up PNES, provides the necessary tools to begin achieving real changes in behavior, thoughts and emotions, and guidelines to live a life that is healthy, safe and good in quality. Psychogenic non-Epileptic Seizures: A Guide will equip you with essential knowledge about this condition and provide you with tools that will help you take charge of your PNES.
