There is currently a great deal of interest in patients with functional somatic symptoms - physical complaints which are not explained by organic findings - but until now there has been little information available on the principles and practical methods of management. This book covers all the main themes in the management of somatic disorders, and will be invaluable both as a comprehensive academic reference and as a practical clinical guide. The authors cover problems specific to children and the elderly, and organization of care, as well as the clinical syndromes such as hypochondriasis and chronic pain, chronic fatique, and low back pain. Treatment of functional somatic symptoms is the first comprehensive, authoritative and practical guide on the management of a wide variety of medically unexplained symptoms which are very frequent in all areas of primary and hospital care. The book will be useful to clinicians and to research workers as a source book and clinical manual.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Based on a 1992 Oxford conference, the book is tightly constructed ... Both plain speaking and sophisticated, the book belongs in the library of all consultation-liaison psychiatrists. * Donna B. Greenberg, Psychosomatics, volume 37, number 1, January/February 1996 *
beautifully presented text ... the editing has produced a coherent whole with a feeling for consensus, as if all the authors had co-operated in the production ... This text is highly recommended. It will be a standard for many years and represents something of the best in Oxford and British psychiatry. * Gordon Lennox, Family Practice, Vol. 13, No. 3, 1996 *
a welcome addition to the literature, concentrating almost exclusively on treatment techniques and originating from a conference held in Oxford in late 1992 ... The chapters on treatment are full of clinical wisdom. * Robert Peveler, University of Southampton, Journal of Psychosomatic Research, vol. 40, no. 5, May 1996 *
