Abstract

The disease model attempts to explain a variety of phenomena ranging from mental illness to criminal behavior. This approach is grounded in the Western philosophical tradition of dualism. The limitations of the disease model are analyzed through a postmodern perspective. Socially sensitive strategies for clinical intervention are offered.
