The mind and body are in constant interaction, and it is increasingly recognized that any true understanding of illness must take this psychosomatic dimension into account. This timely book looks at psychosomatics and psychosomatic medicine (the treatment and understanding of physical illnesses where psychological factors are significantly involved). It gives clinical descriptions of the main psychosomatic disorders and reviews psychotherapeutic approaches to treatment. Clearly set out and accessibly written, it will be essential reading for qualified and trainee counsellors, psychotherapists and doctors.
