Abstract

This article wishes to deconstruct the stereotype of the "somatizing migrant" by reexamining the process of somatization in a cultural perspective and by pointing out the factors that may jeopardize the therapeutic relationship with a migrant patient. It offers suggestions to broaden the clinician's perspective of his patient, and argues for multiple interpretations of the somatization process.
