Mastering Medically Unexplained Symptoms

Mastering Medically Unexplained Symptoms
trainers
Dr Jessica Bolton Dr Angela Cooper
Details

Patients with medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) present with somatic difficulties for which medical investigations fail to fully explain. The blockage of psychological and emotional processes often results in altered autonomic, endocrine, and immune system activity. If the psycho-physiological factors underlying these conditions are not addressed and only standard medical treatment is applied, this can lead to unnecessary medical investigations, medication trials and specialty referrals in an attempt to find a physical cause when none may exist.  

ISTDP (Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy) seeks to create the optimal conditions whereby emotions, that are normally avoided and shunted back into the body through unconscious automatic mechanisms, are instead experienced at a physiological level and brought into conscious awareness. This process reduces anxiety, unhealthy guilt and somatisation, enabling healthy body and brain changes to occur.  

This one-day workshop will highlight the use of ISTDP’s assessment and treatment framework across various MUS cases to determine if emotional factors are present, how they contribute to physical symptoms and how we might target those areas in treatment.   This introductory workshop will present video recordings of therapy work with conditions such as chronic pain, IBS and neurological symptoms.

Outline:

  • The morning session will cover theory, assessment and psycho-diagnosis
  • The afternoon session will cover various aspects of the treatment method
  • Attendees will have the opportunity to reflect on their own emotional processes throughout
