Example text

Information was gathered from 3,469 respondents (age 18–28) using dimensional measures of anxiety, depression, and somatization. Multivariate genetic analysis indicated that an additive genetic and non-shared environment model best explained the covariation among the three factors. The genetic factors accounted for approximately 30% of the variance in somatization scores. Approximately 10% of the genetic variance was due to a specific factor for somatization not overlapping with genetic contributions to anxiety and depression.

The authors explored which factors might be related to children’s worries about health and somatic expression of emotion and found that the mother’s somatization status, organic health problems, and history of childhood adversity were clear predictors. Barsky, Wool, Barnett, and Cleary (1994) screened patients attending a general medical clinic and identified 60 patients with hypochondriasis and 60 without. 6% vs. 6% vs. 1% vs. 3%). 3% vs. 3% vs. 7%). The groups with and without hypochondriasis did not differ in the severity of current health problems.

This team then examined patients’ perceptions of the medical explanations they received (Salmon, Peters, & Stanley, 1999). Three patterns of medical explanation were identified. The first one was described as rejection. Most commonly this occurred when the patient’s perception was that negative test results were taken by the physician to indicate that nothing was wrong. A diagnosis of anxiety or depression was often assumed to mean that the symptoms were unjustified or imaginary.
