What are some causes of Schizoid Personality Disorder?
Weegy: The exact causes of schizoid personality disorder are unknown, [ although a combination of genetic and environmental factors — particularly in early childhood — are thought to contribute to development of all personality disorders. If you have schizoid personality disorder, you may have had a parent who was cold or unresponsive to emotional needs. Or, you may have been hypersensitive or thin-skinned in early adolescence and had these needs treated with annoyance or scorn. A family history — such as having a parent who has any of the disorders on the schizophrenic spectrum — also increases your chances of developing the disorder. ] (More)

What are some treatments for Somatoform disorder?
Weegy: As a general rule, therapy is the most effective treatment for somatoform disorders. [ Since these disorders usually involve underlying irrational thoughts and beliefs, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – which focuses on helping people identify and change errors in their thinking - is believed to be one of the most effective types of therapy for these disorders. Medication may be used to alleviate concurrent symptoms of anxiety or depression, but is usually not an effective form of treatment for somatoform disorders. ] (More)
