Description We will conduct a systematic review of empirical studies regarding completed therapeutic interventions assessing therapeutic change mechanisms in adults with medically unexplained physical symptoms (MUPS). A systematic search will identify relevant articles via a three-stage coding process (abstract and full-text screening and data extraction) according to the PRISMA checklist. The results will be divided into a descriptive and analytical part. The descriptive part will map the variability and role of change mechanisms in the treatment of MUPS patients, whereas the analytical part will compare the effects of those mechanisms and calculate the cumulative effect size for all relevant and simultaneously comparable studies. The methodological quality of incorporated studies as well as the extracted results will be discussed.
