AbstractThe purpose of this study is to determine the structural relationship between alexithymia and somatization in the students of the Islamic Azad University of Marand. The statistical population in this study consists of all students of Islamic Azad University of Marand (8881 students due to the announced statistics). The statistical sample consists of 267 students, who were selected using the Morgan table and using a cluster sampling method. For data collection purposes, The Toronto-Alexithymia-Scale (TAS-20), and Paul wainwright's physical symptoms scale (1991) were used. The validity and reliability of the scales were confirmed. The results obtained from the study by regression analysis showed that components such as alexithymia and difficulty in identifying and describing the feelings can predict the physical symptoms in the students.
