Conversion Reactions are primarily due to anxiety. A child is unable to express the anxiety and symptoms are converted to physical symptoms. Treatment largely depends upon exploring the cause of anxiety, training the child to deal with it and antidepressants. Psychotherapy is very important. Serenace is an antipsychotic usually prescribed for psychotic symptoms.
