In the first section of this encyclopedic volume, Dr. Robert Kellner surveys the biological, psychological, and psychiatric studies on nine psychosomatic syndromes, draws conclusions about the complex etiology of these syndromes, offers guidelines for diagnosis, and recommends treatments based on research findings. The second section is an overview of the various processes that lead to bodily complaints, including somatization. The author discusses how psychosomatic syndromes described in the first section contribute to the symptoms of somatoform disorders and how knowledge gained from research on treatment of psychosomatic syndromes can be applied to the treatment of somatoform disorders.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I certainly recommend this book as an excellent and very complete review of the literature on nine important psychosomatic syndromes. * Hospital and Community Psychiatry *
Oxymoron or not, this book is best described as a brief encyclopedia. Dr. Kellner succeeds in efficiently summarizing research and clinical experience with a challenging group of patients -- those who seek care for physical symptoms that have no known biomedical cause or treatment. It is a useful reference for primary care physicians, medical specialists, and psychiatrists working in medical settings. * Annals of Internal Medicine, George Simon, M.D., M.P.H. *
