Many clinical psychologists don tot feel that the medical model is an appropriate basis for our work and are not happy with the borrowing of psychiatric labels, the use of diagnosis and the prescriptive treatment of symptoms. The reasons for this are many as we can see below. Some of these may be covered by ICD10 so the list may alter.
Treating particular behaviours rather than a diagnosis
Treating of the causes as much as the symptoms
Working with the self
Working on transpersonal issues
Working form a humanistic perspective
Treating thoughts at a more philosophical level
Working from the point of view of health and strengths
Working at the relationship level
Working at the social level
Working out of a broad cultural critique
