What is psychopathology? What is suffering? In exploring these questions, this program will discuss how moral philosophy is inherent to the work of counseling and reveal how the DSM has transformed human suffering into a biomedical condition. Also discussed are the purpose of diagnosis; critiques of DSM diagnoses; culturally sensitive diagnosis; the moral values inherent in diagnosis and the constructs of psychopathology; and the concealed moral content of major counseling approaches.
