The present work thematized Psychosomatics worked from the perspective of Psychology as one of the areas that studies the psychic suffering allocated in the substance body. It aimed to understand the contributions of psychology to the study of Psychosomatics, raising the hypothesis that Psychology does not have its own production that constitutes clinical thinking about Psychosomatics by identifying the lack of a literature that brings the biological body together with psychological thinking ; it also aimed to emphasize the importance of clinical thinking and theoretical production about Psychosomatics, pointing out obstacles and potentialities of this field of study. Considering that the psychosomatic affection covers the illness of the biological body from psychic suffering, the study intended to present the contours, boundaries, as well as the conceptualizations of Psychosomatics from the perspective of Psychology, by characterizing publications that discuss the understanding of this theme, emphasizing its predominant principles and definitions. In order to investigate how this theme has been shown in current scientific production, a survey of the bibliographic production regarding studies on psychosomatic illnesses within the scope of Psychology in the last five years was carried out. From the proposed cut, an analysis of the collected data was established. The understanding that the psyche can influence the functioning of the body is not a new fact, and this work intends to raise questions about the emphasis given by Psychology to the theme of psychic suffering allocated to the body, specifically in the area called Psychosomatics.
