Epilepsy on the Move: Stay tuned for upcoming epilepsy and seizure disorder events and news in the second half of 2020

Epilepsy on the Move: Our gaze is focused on what is to come in the future.  There are many exciting plans in the works and events that are being planned. Stay tuned for upcoming epilepsy and seizure disorder events and news in second half of 2020.

Starting in October, the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group will begin recruiting patients who are diagnosed with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for a treatment trial. This clinical trial is being conducted at the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group and is examining two types of cognitive behavioral therapy for reducing the frequency and severity of seizures in individuals with PNES. The sessions will all be administered through an online (computer) platform.  This study's goal is to analyze changes in seizure characteristics and psychological symptoms associated with the two therapy types to further our understanding of treatment effectiveness for PNES.
