Trainee psychiatrists tend to favour the biological model of mental illness, is the unsurprising finding of some new research, which I found via the BPS digest.
What is perhaps more surprising is that some also endorse other models. I wonder how much this is changing as they work alongside professionals from other disciplines?
New research also suggests that schizophrenia is not linked with a significantly increased risk of committing violent crime. In fact “the overrepresentation of individuals with schizophrenia in violentcrime is almost entirely attributable to concurrent substance abuse.”
