“Most professionals subscribe to a biopsychosocial model of causation — that is, the causes of ? are likely due to biological (bio) and genetic factors, social factors (such as how a person interacts in their early development with their family and friends and other children), and psychological factors (the individual’s personality and temperament, shaped by their environment and learned coping skills to deal with stress). This suggests that no single factor is responsible — rather, it is the complex and likely intertwined nature of all three factors that are important.”
I have to admit I was not aware that this was the base model for many professionals to use. I just like saying the name over and over again, biopsychosocial, biopsychosocial,
biopsychosocial, it’s fun! But where does it put me on the color chart? When I hear this term, I always have the same image in my mind… what is that image? Well I’m glad you asked. Here it is in a cartoon I call Biopsychosocial Humor Model: Mental Health Humor Cartoon.
