Monthly Support PNES Groups

Services por Psychogenic Non Epileptic Seizures

Monthly Support groups for psychogenic non epileptic seizures
(This group is only open to patients who have completed treatment

at the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group)

The way we measure if individual and group therapy have been effective is:
a) If the seizure-like episodes have stopped or gone down in frequency
b) If other aspects of life are better (i.e. back to work, studying, driving, active out of the home, etc)
c) If quality of life, self image and interpersonal relations are improved

Once the patient and psychologist confirm that noticeable improvements of this type have been made, treatment can start winding down. However, because life is unpredictable and throws us curve balls from time to time, all "graduates" of the PNES treatment program know that they are
welcome to drop in on monthly group meetings to touch base with the psychologists and some of the other graduates if needed.
