Somatoform Disorders

Somatoform Disorders

There are many different types and forms of psychological disorders. To make sense of and organize them all, we place disorders into categories, such as anxiety disorders, dissociative disorders, somatoform disorders (among others). Somatoform disorders as those that have some type of bodily symptom (soma = body) but donʼt appear to have any physical cause. This does not mean that the symptoms are not real, only that a physical cause for the real symptoms can’t be found. This may be the result of anxiety, stress, among other causes.
