Abstract

The role of psychotherapy for psychosomatic patients is reviewed. Barriers to treatment, including special characteristics of these patients that make them poor candidates for traditional psychodynamic interventions, are discussed with implications for practice. Clinical recommendations encompass two broad preparatory phases: the health alliance, and the life alliance.
