Economic restrictions in health care delivery encourage the development and use of efficacious, inexpensive, and brief psychiatric interventions in the treatment of psychosomatic illness that can be employed by generalists as well as psychiatrists.

The improvements noted suggest that this approach may provide a rapid, low-cost diagnostic and treatment method appropriate for a range of psychosomatic patients.
