dc.description.abstractThis article discusses how The BodyMind ApproachR(TBMA) addresses insecureattachment styles in medically unexplained symptoms (MUS). Insecure attachmentstyles are associated with adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and MUS (Adsheadand Guthrie, 2015) and affect sufferers’ capacity to self-manage. The article goes onto make a new hypothesis to account for TBMA’s effectiveness (Payne and Brooks,2017), that is, it addresses insecure attachment styles, which may be present in someMUS sufferers, leading to their capacity to self-manage. Three insecure attachmentstyles (dismissive, pre-occupied and fearful) associated with MUS are discussed.TBMA is described and explanations provided of how TBMA has been specificallydesigned to support people’s insecure attachment styles. Three key concepts tosupport insecure attachment styles involved in the content of TBMA are identifiedand debated: (a) emotional regulation; (b) safety; and (c) bodymindfulness. There is arationale for the design of TBMA as opposed to psychological interventions for thispopulation. The programme’s structure, facilitation and content, takes account of thethree insecure attachment styles above. Examples of how TBMA works with theirspecific characteristics are presented. TBMA has been tested and found to be effectiveduring delivery in the United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS). Improved selfmanagement has potential to reduce costs for the NHS and in General Practitioner timeand resourcesen
