A demedicalised approach to cognitive behavioural psychotherapy
Binnie, J. (2023). A demedicalised approach to cognitive behavioural psychotherapy. in: People Not Pathology: Freeing Therapy From The Medical Model PCCS Books.
It is only in the last two or three decades that the medical model has come to dominate psychological theory and practice. This book considers the evidence that points us towards freeing ourselves from this creeping medicalisation and recognising the influence of our environments and circumstances on our psychological wellbeing. Contributors from a range of modalities illustrate how to practise in a demedicalised way. Drawing on these examples from the field and perspectives from different theoretical models, the book demonstrates that an approach freed from the medical model provides the ethically axiomatic framework for psychological practice today.
