Abstract

This article concerns an exploratory investigation into the nature and development of the disorder known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Special attention is paid to the history of the disorder, its clinical features, its physiological and psychological concomitants, the theoretical models providing a variety of explanations for the emergence and maintenance of the disorder, and an in-depth research study undertaken to investigate the relationship between human physiology and psychology with respect to IBS. Lastly, a psychological profile of the typical patient suffering from IBS is presented.

Hierdie artikel is 'n ondersoekende studie na die aard en ontwikkeling van Prikkelbare Dermsindroom (in Engels afgekort as IBS). Aandag word veral geskenk aan die geskiedenis van die bestudering van die versteuring, aan teoretiese modelle wat 'n verskeidenheid verklarings vir die ontstaan en voortlewing van die siekte verskaf, sowel as aan 'n in-diepte-navorsingstudie wat ten doel gehad het om die verband tussen menslike fisiologie en sielkunde te ondersoek in gevalle van IBS. Laastens word 'n sielkundige profiel van die tipiese pasiënt met Prikkelbare Dermsindroom aangebied.
