Society, Behaviour and Epilepsy (Neurology-Laboratory and Clinical Research Developments: Psychology Research Progress)
By (author): Jaya Pinikahana
Although clinical, neurological, biological, psychiatric and even therapeutic aspects of epilepsy have been fairly consistently reviewed, relatively little is known about the psycho-social aspects of this condition. The psycho-social consequences of epilepsy are arguably often more severe than the severity of epilepsy. Studies show that social exclusion, fear, anxiety, stress, suicide, unemployment and homelessness among people with epilepsy are higher than the general population. Although there are no viable eclectic theories of bio-psychosocial aspects of epilepsy, there are several current psychological and sociological perspectives of this disorder. This book fills a gap in the literature on the psycho-social context of epilepsy.
