Consultation-liaison service in the general hospital: Effects of cognitive behavioral therapy in patients with physical nonspecific symptoms


Ehlert, Ulrike; Wagner, Dieter; Lupke, Ulrike (1999). Consultation-liaison service in the general hospital: Effects of cognitive behavioral therapy in patients with physical nonspecific symptoms. Journal of Psychosomatic Research, 47(5):411-417.

Abstract

Nearly 15% of patients referred to a general hospital psychological medicine consultation ser vice met DSM criteria for somatoform disorders or showed psychological factors affecting physical conditions. In a case-control control study of patients meeting these diagnostic criteria, outcomes were compared of 21 consecutively referred patients who received a course of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) in addition to standard hospital treatment (SHT) and another 21 patients who received SHT alone. Compared with the SHT group, those who received CBT treatment showed significantly decreased bodily complaints and negative mood, better insight into the psychosomatic causes of their complaints, and a high motivation for subsequent psychotherapy, (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Inc.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
