SOMATIC SYMPTOM DISORDERS
The above links you to an article from the APA / DSM-V TASK FORCE entitled "Characteristics of Somatic Symptom Disorder." This will be the new classification in the DSM-V that will replace the diagnostic categories in the DSM-IV for emotional illnesses that involve the interface of psyche (mind / personality / intellect / feeling / temperament) and the soma (body).
There is some controversy about this as it means a reduction in the number of diagnoses possible and so such a change evokes concern, and maybe even some fear and suspicion from mental health practitioners.
