Description - The Psychopathology of Functional Somatic Syndromes by Roberto Patarca-Montero

The Psychopathology of Functional Somatic Syndromes examines the link between mental illness and physical syndromes that lack organic disease explanations. These include chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, premenstrual syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome and Gulf war Illness. The book examines the best research work of the past 20 years to determine the association between psychopathology and functional illness; the biological gradient between somatic and psychological symptoms and the manifestations of dysfunctional coping. The research challenges recent conceptualisations of functional somatic syndromes as mental disorders connected to affective spectrum disorders, chronic somatizing, serotonin deficiency, physical inactivity, and/ or abnormal illness behaviour.
