The Role of Inadvertent Reinforcement in Somatization in Children: A Clinical Case Study
      Angana Mukherjee
Abstract: The present case study outlines in detail, the effectiveness of the Applied Relaxation technique, combined with some of the cognitive and behavioural strategies, in management of tension-type headache, of a 9 year old boy, referred to here as “Manoj”. The total number of sessions conducted were 12, with follow up sessions being continued. The main aim of the treatment sessions was helping Manoj and his parents to identify the role of psychological factors in causation of the headache; reducing distress associated with the problem of anxiety and also being able to use relaxation during everyday activities apart from the current concern. The results corroborated with the previous findings of use of applied relaxation with tension-type headache in paediatric cases. The role of maintaining factors in persistence of further occurrence of similar somatic complaints are also reflected upon.
