Adolescent psychosomatics

What is adolescent psychosomatics?

Psychosomatic disorders are physical illnesses caused by psychological causes. Psychosomatic disorders in adolescents are mainly caused by high levels of school stress, difficulties in relationships with parents and classmates, unrequited painful crushes, or intrafamily conflicts. These and other stress factors cause teenagers to experience negative emotions such as fear, sadness, sadness, sadness, etc. And it is precisely these kinds of emotions that are a link between the psychological and somatic spheres of the teenager's life. The strong emotional intensity of this age period leads to the fact that stresses, worries, unsatisfied needs, and desires lead to physical illnesses. 

 It is unacceptable for a teenager to seek help from adults; he does so as a last resort when the physical suffering has become unbearable. But even in this case, he only speaks about the physical symptoms and expects his parents and doctors to help him remove these symptoms. It is very difficult or even unacceptable for most teenagers to discuss their psychological problems, to let someone into their inner world. But unresolved psychological problems continue their destructive effect, the symptoms return, the classical treatment does not help. In particularly difficult situations, this can lead to alcoholism, drug addiction, or even suicide as an attempt to escape physical suffering. Adults who were unable to help him, the teenager stops trusting, closes in on himself, intensifying and multiplying the psychological problems that are the true cause of the disease.

Here is a sample list of psychosomatic illnesses that appear during adolescence:

  • Digestive system: appetite disorders, aerophagia, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, flatulence, stool disorders (diarrhea, constipation);

"The Virtual Health Scanner and the ability to communicate remotely with a qualified psychologist are optimal for a teenager for several reasons:
  • The use of computer technology in testing is perceived favorably by teenagers and arouses interest and trust;
  • The test person is spared the necessity to speak directly about the psychological problems, to "confess" them;
  • By communicating with the psychologist indirectly, he can feel protected and in control of the situation;
  • In some cases, the problem can be solved without direct counseling of the teenager, based on discussing his test results with a parent and taking a color-correction course;
  • The process of diagnosis and correction does not take a teenager more than 20 minutes daily, it does not require anything other than a computer.
