Overview

Patients with nonepileptic seizures present in neurology, psychiatry, psychology and emergency departments. Although the disorder has been well documented in the medical literature and much is known about the nature and signs of the condition, much less has been written about its treatment and management. Gates and Rowan's Nonepileptic Seizures, third edition, takes a multidisciplinary approach to this neuropsychiatric disorder, building and branching from the prior editions, with a strong focus on management, to aid all clinicians in the diagnosis and treatment of both child and adult patients. With a DVD containing video material to supplement the differential diagnosis, patient characteristics and treatment sections, and with contributions from the leading authorities from around the world, this will be essential reading for physicians and psychologists, at all levels of training and experience, encountering patients with this complex brain-behavior disorder.
