Excerpt

Preface

Clinical psychologists have been working in this field for many years, and from the work carried out to date, it is clear that, as a profession, we can make a major contribution to the understanding of epilepsy, its assessment and treatment. Our aim, therefore, in editing this volume is to bring together current expertise and knowledge in order to provide a readily accessible source of information for psychologists coming to the field for the first time, for those with some experience, and for other interested professionals.
