Defending the Counseling Model and Its Eventual Synthesis with the Medical Model.
Farrell, Madison, III
This paper explores the strengths and weaknesses of the medical model in an effort to promote a counseling perspective that embraces some of the medical models strengths. Through inclusion, rather than exclusion, it is believed that the counseling model will eventually infiltrate the medical model by way of its own documentation system. With its emphases on individual differences, quality over production, the power of belief, and the psychological needs of its clients, the counseling model provides a holistic approach to treating individuals. It is theorized that the union of these two models will provide a healthy synthesis of approaches that will benefit everyone in the long run. (Author)
