Session Summary

Somatoform disorders/conversion disorders/functional disorders in neurology [e.g., no-nepileptic seizures (NES)] are common and mimic neurologic conditions (e.g. epilepsy) but in the absence of abnormal electrical discharges. These disorders are disabling and are not adequately recognized or treated by mental health professionals including pharmacists.
