«A Study of Attitude Towards Diseases in Hypochondria-Prone Individuals»
As any other attitude, the attitude towards diseases is individual, selective and conscious. Any disease not only affects the mental processes, states and psychological properties inherent in a premorbid personality, but also leads to the emergence of such a ‘psychological neoplasm’ as an attitude towards the disease which is involved in the regulation of the patient’s mental activity and behavior to varying degrees. The article discusses research data on the attitude towards the disease in cases where a somatic disease is combined with hypochondria disorder.
