Evaluation of a self-regulation based psycho-educational pilot intervention targeting children and adolescents with epilepsy in Greece


The literature suggests that interventions focusing on changing illness appraisals of young individuals as well as enhancing coping skills may be an effective treatment for pediatric psychosocial maladjustment [1–4]. This is especially true for children and adolescents with epilepsy. Epilepsy is amongst the most prevalent neurological diseases, with a substantial negative impact not only on the physical, but also on the cognitive, social, emotional, and behavioural functioning of the patient. As a consequence, several publications point at the necessity of more specific and individualized psycho-educational interventions for children and adolescents [5–9].
