The authors report as the clinical work in the psychosomatic field showed a relative inefficacy of the treatments if based only on the biological therapy (drug) or on the exclusive verbal therapy. Hence the need to develop a psychotherapeutic approach based on a structured integration of different techniques, compatible among them in agreement with "The movement for integration" arose in the seventies in the United States. The kind of approach developed is indicated by the acronym PIIEC (Integrated Imaginative Psychotherapy with Body Expression), which precisely involves the integrated use of different techniques with the aim to widen the possibilities for therapeutic intervention in psychosomatic perspective.
