Default Re: Frustration With Psychological Community

I agree with the last comment. FIguring out WHY the disorder developed rarely, if ever, causes the symptoms to go away. I have worked with the treatment of non-epileptic seizures for the past 12 years. We use a cognitive behavioral treatment approach very similar to what they use for panic disorder and pain mgmt. I would be happy to answer questions you have but I would suggest finding someone who has a very strong background in cognitive-behavioral therapy and then having them contact me or others who work in behavioral medicine or health psychology programs to find out how we apply this therapy to non-epileptic seizures. I, personally, work at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and we see patients like your wife everyday.
