Presale Purchase: Hidden From View:
A Clinician’s Guide to Psychophysiological Disorders
ALMOST ONE HALF OF PRIMARY CARE PATIENTS have at least one medically unexplained symptom that does not respond to standard care. This leads to unnecessary investigation, referrals, health costs, medications as well as frustration in patients and health professionals alike. The great majority of these patients have psychophysiological disorders (PPD). USING CUTTING EDGE PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC and neurophysiologic principles, Hidden From View explains how the brain develops neural pathways that cause symptoms, such as headaches, irritable bowel and bladder syndromes, fibromyalgia, fatigue, insomnia, and neck and back pain. It illustrates powerful emotion focused interviewing techniques to both detect and treat PPD.
