Ritically assess the medical model as applied to the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness

Notes: Psychiatry is the branch of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment
of a?mental illnessa. Many have objected to the application of the medical model to this
domain, claiming that there are fundamental problems of diagnosis which in turn lead
to inadequate and often apparently punitive treatment. It is especially important that
you carefully consider the issue of a?cultural relativitya in this essay and how it impacts
on the interpretation of data from brain imaging and neurochemistry studies. RD
Laing, Thomas Szasz, and Richard Bentall (amongst others) offer critiques from
different perspectives that you could consider.
