Working with Functional Neurological Conditions

Postby MindfulPsych » Mon Apr 10, 2017 8:26 pm

Hi all,

Is there anyone on here who works with individuals who have functional neurological conditions in a psychological therapy setting? I'm looking for some advice about how best I can support my patients. I have supervision of course and i've been reading up around such conditions including Jon Stone and Mark Williams publications but does anyone have any advice? How do you ensure that you support your patients throughout psychological therapy?

Thank you :D

Hello, I've found this book really helpful: https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Books/Treating-Somatization-Cognitive-Behavioral-Approach-Robert-L-Woolfolk/1593853505 as it outlines some of the challenges and gives helpful pointers in formulating.

The Jon Stone http://www.neurosymptoms.org/ website is also a really helpful resource to direct people to if you've not seen it.

It's a fascinating area.

Hi there,
I've worked in this area, and loved it!
Don't have time for a lengthy reply, sorry, but this is a decent read:
