Explaining Medically Unexplained Symptoms

Research suggests that approximately one-third to one-half of primary care visits are related to psychological factors. These patients, who suffer who suffer from a myriad of disorders, including migraine headaches, back pain, and gastrointestinal disorders, can be a burden to the primary care physicians who are usually on the front line of treatment. The cost for these disorders alone is estimated to be 100 billion annually in the U.S. These patients often experience little relief from their symptoms, in spite of multiple referrals to specialists and costly diagnostic tests. Both patients and their physicians end up frustrated by the lack of improvement.


Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) is one of the few treatments that has been shown in research to improve and, often,  resolve these long-standing conditions. These conditions have been variously described as Mind-Body Disorders or Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms (MUPS).  Given the prevalence of these disorders and the untold suffering that these patients endure, one of the major challenges in our health system today is to find a way to provide treatments that focus on resolving the underlying emotional conflicts that actually cause these physical maladies. The opioid epidemic of the past decade highlights the urgency of improving the diagnosis and coordination of care for patients whose conditions cannot be treated through biological treatments alone.


This workshop will be of interest to both physicians and psychotherapists alike. Dr. Cooper will present video recordings of psychotherapy sessions demonstrating how conditions such as chronic pain, IBS and neurological symptoms can often be resolved, often in relatively short-term treatments of 20 sessions or less.   She will also be presenting ways of approaching mind body problems for physicians - enabling the biggest impact at the earliest opportunity. So whether you are working in primary care, with acute or chronic conditions, or in psychotherapeutic services - reserve your space now!
