Aust N Z J Psychiatry. 1998 Feb;32(1):86-92; discussion 93-6.

A critical review of the biopsychosocial model.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The aim of this review is to provide an analysis of the epistemic status of the biopsychosocial model.

METHOD:

A critical comparison of the biopsychosocial model with the general concept of models.

RESULTS:

In its present form, the biopsychosocial model is so seriously flawed that its continued use in psychiatry is not justified.

CONCLUSION:

Further development of theory-based models in psychiatry is urgently needed.
