    schema:reviewBody ""There has been a recent surge of interest in the physiology of such illnesses as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, and multiple chemical sensitivity. However, biomedical models can only go so far toward understanding a group of painful and often frustrating symptoms. These models are unable to answer fully such questions as how these vulnerabilities are aggravated by psychosocial stress factors, including childhood abuse, work, and interpersonal stress; what cognitive factors contribute to an increase in symptoms; and, perhaps most important, why medically unexplained illnesses strike women in overwhelmingly disproportionate numbers. Author Susan K. Johnson surveys the most recent research on how psychological, social, and physiological factors may interact and contribute to the development of symptoms and illustrates how this knowledge can inform practice through the use of effective therapy examples and treatment approaches. This volume will appeal to both psychologists and health care professionals interested in understanding more fully the interaction between mind and body in medically unexplained illness."--Jacket." ;
