Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the effects of non-pharmacological interventions for somatoform disorders (specifically somatisation disorder, undifferentiated somatoform disorder, somatoform disorders unspecified, somatoform autonomic dysfunction, pain disorder and alternative somatoform diagnoses proposed in literature) and MUPS in adults in comparison with treatment as usual, waiting list controls, attention placebo, psychological placebo and other psychological or physical therapies.
