Caveat Emptor: Considerations before Buying In to the "New" Medical Model.
Gresham, Frank M.
Behavioral Disorders, v27 n2 p158-67 Feb 2002
In response to Forness and Kavale's (2001) argument that the field of emotional and behavioral disorders (E/BD) should adopt a "new" medical model, this commentary argues that the benefit of psychiatric diagnoses and pharmacologic treatments have not been established. It advocates a resistance-to-intervention approach to E/BD eligibility determination and titration of behavioral treatments as the guiding principle. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
