MHPN Webinar – Unravelling the Myth: Somatic Symptom Disorder

Hosted by Mental Health Professionals Network.

Register now for an interdisciplinary Q&A about somatic symptom disorder and gain an understanding of this complex illness.

Somatic symptom disorder is a common presentation to health professionals with many patients experiencing significant disability and a history of trauma which complicates the therapeutic relationship.

Presented by MHPN, this live event will include a Q&A discussion with Associate Professor Louise Stone (GP), Professor Alex Holmes (psychiatrist) and Liz Muldoon (psychologist) in a session facilitated by GP Dr Konrad Kangru.

Learning outcomes:

  • Identify practical strategies to deal with a person presenting with medically unexplained symptoms.
