NYPSI Works in Progress Seminar:
Psychological Care of the Medically Ill: Understanding the Conceptual Framework of Psychosomatic Medicine

This presentation will define and expand on the concepts of enhanced psychological care of the medically ill. The history of psychosomatic medicine and its relationship with psychiatry and psychoanalysis will be reviewed. It will draw on the conceptual framework of psychoanalysis, the conception of the seven basic psychological stresses encountered from and during medical illness, alloplastic load on the body from mental stress and conflict, and the importance of understanding transference in the medical setting. In addition, the current “head wind” in medicine – Collaborative Care – will be presented and critiqued regarding its place in the developed and developing world. The World Health Organization declared in March of 2017 that depression is the leading cause of burden of health in the world. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the world. The interaction of depression with the illnesses of cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, and neurological disorders and the risk factors it presents in the medical setting will be described. Finally, an approach to improving mental health care in the medical setting by enhancing the training of physicians, will be presented.

Sinai Hospital; Master Teacher; graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine; author of 185 refereed papers, 35 nonrefereed papers, 91 chapters in books and 5 books.
