Description

Psychological techniques have a major role to play in the treatment and management of epilepsy. The Clinical Psychologist's Handbook of Epilepsy is the first comprehensive reference text written specifically from a psychological angle.

A team of experts review the latest research and give practical advice for the clinician in areas including neuropsychological assessment, the impact of anti-epileptic medication, behaviour problems in children with epilepsy, and the impact of epilepsy in people with learning disabilities.

A practical handbook for all psychologists working in the area, whether new to the field or more experienced, The Clinical Psychologist's Handbook of Epilepsy will also provide a useful resource for research.

Reviews

'This book provides a valuable overview of the field for those whose practice might bring them into contact with people with epilepsy. For those already working in the field, the book provides a helpful resume of those areas that complement this particular specialism.' - British Journal of Psychiatry

'[This book] provides a highly competent coverage of an important but all too often neglected issue. It is a volume that deserves to be widely read and consulted and the editors are to be congratulated on a job well done.' - British Journal of Health Psychology
