Internalised stigma in people with seizure conditions
About the study
We are looking at levels of internalised stigma in people with epileptic and non-epileptic seizure disorders. Internalised stigma is a term that refers to negative thoughts and feelings (such as shame) that people have about their condition. We are also looking at the impact of internalised stigma on self-esteem and someone's belief and confidence in their own abilities.
We know that people who experience functional seizures may experience stigma from some healthcare professionals. We are interested in whether this stigma is internalised, and whether this differs between people with epilepsy compared to those with non-epileptic diagnoses.
What will it involve?
We will ask participants to complete a series of online questionnaires. This is expected to take 10-20 minutes of your time.
