    Comparing Biomedical and Biopsychosocial Models of Health

    4 star(s)

    It is a reductionist view of illness. This means that it takes the simplest possible cause of the illness and applies the simplest cure. The biomedical model uses single factor causes and doesn't consider all the factors that lead to illness. For example the biomedical model would say smoking is the cause of heart disease, but not all smokers get heart disease so other factors must be involved.

    Describe and Discuss Two Alternative Psychological Approaches To Abnormal Behaviour

    4 star(s)

    Some people have no self worth or confidence at all, either through something that has happened to them at some time or just simply because they are who they are. They constantly think of themselves as useless or stupid. Whatever they do in life they feel they haven't done good enough or could have done better. Although the aim of all cognitive therapy is the same, they differ slightly with different psychologists. Beck's idea was that depressives see themselves as victims, having negative thoughts about themselves, the world and the future, and these thoughts seem to come automatically and involuntarily.
