To be advised.
In recent years, medical professionals have gotten better at identifying when someone is experiencing non-epileptic attacks. However, there is still lots of work to be done to find the best treatments for people with Non-Epileptic Attack Disorder (NEAD). The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of the psychological mechanisms involved in physical sensations that individuals with a diagnosis of NEAD feel. We are hoping that this will help us learn more about the psychological factors which contribute to experiencing a non-epileptic attack, so that in the future we can explore what types of psychological support will best help individuals with a diagnosis of NEAD.
The results will be summarised and reported as part of a thesis within the Lancaster University Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme. Following this, the report may be submitted for publication in an academic or professional journal and be shared as a summary report online. The summary will never have specific information about participants.
