    "Psychological approaches to somatisation
    in developing countries"

    So basically they don't know what's causing the symptoms, and they want to irresponsibly add the stigma of psychological illness AKA "it's your thoughts and behaviour or you're lying about the existence symptoms", to these poor bastards.

    I'd say the "social" in Biopsychosocial, is caused by these morons spouting their somatization nonsense.

    Somatization Disorder seems like an invention that suits the economic rationalists. A perfect thing to export to the third world, with a treatment packaged in a cheaper & culturally adapted form. How sad & twisted o_O

    But I though Somatization disorders were purely western diseases.
