Bio-psycho-social model

Bio-psycho-social model

The bio-psycho-social model is becoming increasingly popular in the USAand in Europe, as it recognizes a combination of factors in the formation of illness or disease and in its treatment. It is an adaptation of the medical model, but it seems to be more effective, and precludes a multi-disciplinary approach. It is recognized that one’s state of mind can affect one’s immune system, and this leads into the discipline of psychoneuroimmunology. Within depression (for example), it is recognized that the depression itself might not be the cause of the higher incidence of accidents or liver damage, but a depressed person is more likely to take risks, and also to become alcoholic, which can then affect the liver.
