Demystifying Functional Neurological Disorders
Functional neurological disorders (FND) are the second most common cause of complaints of patients seeking neurological care. Functional neurological symptoms can mimic any neurological symptoms, and the most common subtypes are Functional Seizures or Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures (PNES) and Functional Movement Disorders (FMD). For decades, these conditions have puzzled medical providers and effective diagnosis and treatment has been hard to achieve. Recent research has brought more clarity to the conceptualization, diagnosis, and treatment of FND, providing hope for patients and providers. Psychotherapeutic intervention remains the most effective treatment approach for these conditions. In this workshop, Dr. VanderVeen will review the latest research into FND, including how psychologists and mental health professionals can use evidence-based practices for diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients with FND.
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1. Describe current and historical conceptualizations of functional neurological disorders.
2. Explain the role of mental health professionals in the diagnosis of functional neurological disorders.
3. Utilize evidence-based psychological treatments for functional neurological disorders.
