This is a unique book based on fifteen years of intensive clinical practice with and investigations into the causes and treatment of pseudoseizures. It provides a classification scheme, which permits the clinician to reduce complex clinical material to a few well-defined and coherent pseudoseizure syndromes. The major theme of the work is the influence of trauma in the genesis of pseudoseizures along with treatment implications. Dr Kalogjera-Sackellares offers a psychodynamic model for understanding pseudoseizure syndromes by utilizing and synthesizing concepts drawn from three different schools of psychodynamic theory and therapy: psychoanalytic theory, object-relations theory and self psychology. Furthermore, practical guidance and techniques are offered for handling situations that might be encountered while conducting therapy as well as a valuable summary of the neurological features of pseudoseizure syndromes.
