Psychosomatic Medicine - Psy 2

Certified Program

Psychosomatic medicine takes people’s subjective and objective aspects of health and illness through their entire lifespan into account. The subjectively experienced lifeworld of the people affected, their physical-bodily complaints and their social inclusion are recognized as influenceable processes in complex, dynamic systems. Differential diagnoses and therapy plans are made based on a psychosomatic approach.

Psychosomatic medicine involves health promotion, prevention, curative and rehabilitative treatment and is both specialized and interdisciplinary. The clinical field of psychosomatic medicine is therefore called a special discipline that understands origin and sustained symptoms in a bio-psycho-social, cultural and ecological context of interconnections and interactions.
