Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Twenty epileptic children were compared with regard to their anxiety levels and self-concept measures, to two control groups: (a) non-handicapped children, (b) learning-disabled children. The epileptic children demonstrated higher levels of trait anxiety and dissatisfaction with themselves, as compared to each and both of the control groups. The results stressed the critical value of psychological consultation for the epileptic children and their parents.
