DISEASE, MORAL, FAMILY, AND SOCIOCULTURAL THEORETICAL MODELS

Based on the research you did in this unit’s studies: Compare and contrast the following four theoretical models for explaining addictions and compulsive behavior: disease, moral, family, sociocultural. Evaluate the effectiveness of each theoretical model and the advantages and limitations of using each with clients from diverse sociocultural backgrounds. Support your ideas with material from the professional literature. Be sure to answer the questions: How does each model conceptualize and treat issues of addiction and compulsive behavior? What are the strengths and limitations of each model? Which model are you least comfortable working with, and why?
