New Book:

In January of 2014, Dr. Lorna Myers published Psychogenic Non-epileptic Seizures: A Guide for patients, loved ones and professionals who work with them and who may be unfamiliar with the condition.  Dr. Myers has extensive knowledge of the diagnosis and treatment of Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures (PNES) as a clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist practicing for over ten years. She is the Director the PNES Treatment Program and the Clinical Neuropsychology Program at the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group. 

The book is an invaluable resource that explains the elements that make up PNES, provides the necessary tools to begin achieving real changes in behavior, thoughts and emotions, and guidelines to live a life that is healthy, safe and good in quality.  It has received wonderful reviews and has been very well received by patients and health providers alike.  This book is for sale on (Kindle and print version) and on the Barnes and Noble website.
