This book tackles the issues under three main headings. Section 1 deals with the social implications of epilepsy in young people, for example in education and employment, driving and in personal relationships. In Section II the latest therapies are described: choosing appropriate therapy, when and how to treat with drugs, non-drug therapy, and the problems of drug withdrawal. Finally, the authors of chapters in Section III present the latest research in epilespsy, concentrating on non-convulsive status epilepticus, ambulatory EEG monitoring, photosensitivity and new investigatory techniques. Paediatricians, neurologists, psychologists and psychiatrists will find that this book provides invaluable guidance to the practical management of epilepsy in young patients."@en ;
