The Quantification of Mental Health: Confronting Dissonance with Best Practices, Evidence, and the Medical Model

This presentation will review the logic of the medical model and review how this logic conflicts with both core theoretical perspectives in the field and the evidence on "what works" in therapy. The dissonance created by this dominant discourse will be reviewed as will its practical impact on those in Counselor Education. Finally, a discussion on ways the field can maintain diverse and complex perspectives and co-exist with demands to quantify human experience will be facilitated.
