Post a brief description of the "person-in-environment" perspective 

.

Person-in-environment perspective is based on the idea that an individual's behavior cannot be completely understood without taking into consideration the different aspects of that individual's environment such as their culture, social status, religion, family, and economic status.

Compare and contrast the medical model and the biopsychosocial model. Be sure to describe the advantages and disadvantages of both models in the delivery of medical social work services.

The biopsychosocial model focuses on the biology or physiology of a client's health; the psychology or thoughts, feelings, and behaviors influencing health; and the ways that society and culture influence health (Engel, 2012). The biomedical model is an approach that sees the client's health as the primary factor. The biomedical model does not take into consideration possible social factors which makes the medical model very limiting. With the biomedical model, a person's social, psychological, and behavioral aspects are not taken into consideration (Engel, 2012).

 

Explain how the person-in-environment perspective relies heavily on the principles of the biopsychosocial model.

The person-in-environment perspective takes into consideration the different aspects of a person's environment and cultural beliefs and the principles of the biopsychosocial model looks at the physiological aspects of there health which also is influenced by the client's environment and beliefs. The two seen to overlap and work together.

 

 

Explain whether the biopsychosocial model might continue to be compatible with the future of the social work profession. Provide a rationale.

The biopsychosocial model is to not only improve on the disease approach but also change the proper way to assess and treat health and held by the medical model (Engel, 2012). Medical social workers are in an ever-changing field and different theories and approaches are always being tried. The biopsychosocial model is a more thorough model, when assessing human health, that a social worker can have in their toolbox.

Finally, explain whether the person-in-environment perspective might rely heavily on the principles of the biopsychosocial model in the future.

I feel that the person-in-environment perspective will rely more on the principles of the biopsychosocial model. For example, your client has a family history of addiction, this can make a person more likely to develop an addiction compared to people without a family history of addiction. It is possible that a person's biological factors could play a role in the development of an addiction but as a social worker, you have to take into consideration the psychological factor as well as their social factor and their environment.



  • Analyze your colleague's post about the two models in relation to the medical social work profession. Expand on your colleague's post about the medical model and the biopsychosocial model in the delivery of medical social work services.
  • Provide a constructive critique of your colleague's post on the compatibility of the biopsychosocial model in the future.
