This paper presents a single case study of an epileptic hostel resident who presented behavioural problems in the form of high frequency pseudoepileptic seizures in association with an attention-seeking personality. Psychological intervention along behavioural lines was found to be lastingly effective in reducing the frequency of these seizures and generalized improvements were obtained in other areas of social skill. The results are discussed with reference to suggested implications for clinical practice. © 1986, British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies. All rights reserved.
