Nature, function and dynamics of somatic symptoms in patients with an introjective personality style. (01D00119)

Recent research pointed to the role of somatic symptoms in patients with an introjective personality style. Their nature and function, however, have hardly been examined. Our study deals with this by examining the somatic symptoms within the subjective and interpersonal functioning of these patients. To this end, we combine quantitative and in-depth qualitative analyses, including single case research as well as psycholinguistic methods.
