Example text

However, patients’ disclosure of the emotional and social dimensions of their predicament depends on cultural concepts of the person and views on what is appropriate to express to others within the family, in the community, and in health care settings. Social and emotional dimensions of distress may be suppressed or hidden because of the potential for social stigmatization. The category of somatoform disorders, which is applied to any somatic condition for which there is no clear physiological explanation on the assumption that psychological factors must therefore account for the condition, reflects both the mind-body dualism of biomedicine and the clinician’s difficulty in accessing the social meanings of the patient’s suffering (Kirmayer, 2000; Mayou, Kirmayer, Simon, Kroenke, & Sharpe, 2005).
