Description - The Clinical Psychologist's Handbook of Epilepsy by Christine Cull
It is becoming increasingly recognised that epilepsy is no longer the sole domain of the medical profession. In particular, over recent years the contribution made by psychologists to the understanding and treatment of this disorder has developed enormously. The Clinical Psychologist's Handbook of Epilepsy addresses those psychological aspects of epilepsy that are important for both assessment and management. Following a brief introduction to epilepsy, its causes, classification and investigation, the topics addressed in detail by the book include: neuropsychological assessment, including a guide to developing an assessment protocol; memory deficits in epilepsy, their assessment and rehabilitation; the impact of anti-epileptic medication on cognition and behaviour; psychological disturbance associated with epilepsy; and behaviour problems in children with epilepsy. The book contains contributions form experts in the field and provides a review of the latest research findings. It will be a valuable handbook and a practical guide for all clinical psychologists working in the field of epilepsy.
