Abstract: Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects patients and their family behavior and well-being often leading to social withdrawn. For this reason, it is important that people learn about epilepsy, and which are the social implications on the lives of people with epilepsy stop them of being victims of the stigma in the community. This article aims to show the importance of working with groups in epilepsy. We try to provide basic guidelines towards achieving effective results. The group dynamics improves the interpersonal relationships, focusing the treatment of their problems and difficulties, especially in chronic diseases. Our experience has shown that this intervention has a great potential to provide well-being, reducing the people's anxiety and ultimately providing improvement in the quality of life and reduction of the felt stigma.
