Mind the Gap symposium and workshops
Our Mind the Gap series provide professionals with training, lectures, workshops and interactive sessions to broaden understanding of complex epilepsy.
Mind the Gap workshop, 13 - 14 March 2014
We are holding a two day training event for medical professionals including Paediatric Neurologists, Paediatricians with a special interest in epilepsy, Psychologists and Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists.
The course will provide training in the management of cognitive and behavioural problems in school age children with epilepsy. From our research it is clear that such problems occur in around 90% of children with active epilepsy.
Mind the Gap symposium, 4 June 2013
Our 3rd ‘Mind the Gap’ symposium focused on the severe behaviour disorders that can manifest in those with complex epilepsy and how they can be managed. Very little research has been undertaken in this area, and consequently the interaction between the epilepsy, behaviour disorder, and the underlying brain pathology remains unclear in many cases. Management strategies can appear complex, and may or may not take epilepsy or behaviour disorder into consideration.
The available presentations for the day are:
Difficult behaviour in children – an overview
Pathological Demand Avoidance Syndrome – research to date
Francesca Happe/Liz O'Nions
The parental predicament. How difficult is it to share a problem?
Support for staff dealing with difficult behaviour. (Medical/educational/parental)
*Please note that not all sessions are available in presentation format.
