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.
