    Looks like it could be quite annoying

    I'm afraid that Abstract makes my skin crawl.

    It seems to suggest that the first and most important duty of the paediatrician is to put in place a mental health diagnosis, and the issue of checking for treatable disease is an afterthought.

    Shameless and irresponsible marketing spin.

    This is my surprised face: :bored:

    The paper title sounds like a book for children.

    And the wording here suggests one or the other - the paediatrician can diagnose a functional somatic symptom or they can direct the child and family onto a path toward health and well-being.

    Underpinned by the idea that a mental health diagnosis, or treatment, inappropriately applied can't harm. :banghead:

    And what if the family do not "feel relieved and validated"? Or is that not an alternative?

    That's what happens when disease progresses. Best to diagnose and treat it early and not waste time with magical psychosomatic thinking.
