‘Somatisation & Somatic Symptom Disorder‘

Questions therefore arise when the severity of the presenting symptoms, cannot be explained by any one diagnosis. In our final educational session for 2019, mlcoa’s Dr Howe Synnott will provide his insights on Somatisation and Somatic Symptom Disorder, exploring it’s diagnostic criteria in accordance with the DSM guidelines, and providing case examples of management strategies for the condition.
