  • Epilepsy is marked by recurrent seizures, the result of sudden excessive electrical discharges involving different parts of the brain, and varies from the briefest lapses of attention or muscle jerks to severe and prolonged convulsions.

    Living in the shadow of epilepsy obviously has enormous consequences for young people, and there is a real need for an up-to-date book which looks at behavioural and emotional issues as well as medical ones, and which also explores complementary therapies and self-management issues. Coping with Epilepsy in Children and Young People looks at the causes and triggers of childhood and teenage epilepsy, types of epilepsy, including those particular to young people (i.e. juvenile myoclonic), seizure control and outgrowing epilepsy, transition from childhood to teenage years, including transition to adult care, hormones, sex and contraception, behavioural and emotional issues, school, college and university, driving and careers.
