Abstract

A semi-directed interview is performed with parents of 18 subjects in paediatric age suffering from epilepsy. Feelings stired up by the appearance of the seizures are investigated; their influence on parent-child relationship before and after communicating diagnosis are also considered. The anguishes stired up by the disease appearance and parent-child relationship quality seem to be comparatively independent from some factors: severity and clinical expressiveness of the epilepsy, and seizures frequency. Otherwise, they are closely connected to parents personality.
