In connection with the increasing role of psychosocial and personal factors in the genesis of human diseases, the psychosomatic approach has established itself as a universal principle of modern medicine. Many insightful hypotheses are known, and many important facts have been obtained to explain the mechanisms of the emergence and development of psychogenic disorders. However, the “mysterious leap of the psychic into the somatic”, about which S. Freud spoke, remains largely unclear. Associated with this is the constant and ever-increasing urgency of studying the nature of psychosomatic disorders. The studies devoted to the analysis and generalization of the problem are presented in this monograph.
