Product description

Review

"Overall, due to its brevity and completeness, this text is quite interesting, and will provide clinicians with a more global understanding of those being treated for this disorder."
Doody's Review ServiceG

"The book brilliantly brings historical perspectives and up-to-date evidence together. Trimble's work is remarkably intellectual."
Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

"...this is a very well-written book. It is an excellent summary for any psychiatrist or physician interested in becoming an expert witness."
Allan Abbass MD, FRCPC, The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry

"...a refreshingly direct and candid book on a subject that frequently provokes controversy...Professor Trimble's book is welcome because of its erudition and honesty."
John Sheehan, MB, Quarterly Journal of Mental Health

"Michael Trimble's Somatoform Disorders is packed with a lot of useful information for both clinicians and lawyers dealing with personal injury claims."
Psychiatric Services

"This is not the book to pick up the night before you are to be grilled by an attorney, but it should be carefully read and digested well before then by specialists in Psychosomatic Medicine, Consultation-Liaison, and Forensic Psychiatry, as well as any health care professional testifying regarding disability or malpractice in cases with unexplained physical symptoms."
James L. Levenson, Journal of Psychosomatic Research

Book Description

People with somatoform disorder present with a range of symptoms that typically last for years and can't be traced to a specific physical cause. Such symptoms may range from frequent headaches to gastrointestinal problems. This book is an in-depth, clinically orientated review of somatoform disorders and related clinical presentations (such as chronic fatigue syndrome) and how they present in a medico-legal setting. It is aimed at both clinicians and lawyers who deal with injury claims where these disorders impact much more frequently than is generally recognised.
