Do you suffer from epilepsy and/or non-epileptic attack disorder? We are currently conducting a short questionnaire to assess how different self-perceptions (self-compassion, gratitude, perfectionism) are related to how individuals with epilepsy and non-epileptic attack disorder cope with their seizures.
Epilepsy and non-epileptic attack disorder (NEAD) are chronic, disabling conditions that can cause people to become anxious, worried and low in mood. Research has shown that people living with other long-term, chronic conditions cope differently with their illness depending on the way they view themselves. These different self-perceptions can influence how well people with long-term health problems manage to live with their conditions.
This study is being carried out as part of a Doctor of Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) research project based at the University of Sheffield.
