Sociocultural of Somatization Disorder

Sociocultural aspects of somatization have received considerable attention. As noted earlier, somatization is a worldwide phenomenon.

In other cultures, the distinction between body and mind is usually not made. Especially within the Western culture, somatization and psychologization tend to be seen as mutually exclusive response styles.
