References lack quality[edit]

While the overall quality of the article is not bad, some of the statements need references or higher quality references. Anyone want to help out? Arch (talk) 11:44, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Untitled Content[edit]

I edited this article because it's original format when I discovered it this morning clearly presented a one-sided, narrow view of the impact of Engel's biopsychosocial model. While it inaccurately portrayed the model as some "fly-by-night" perspective, it completely ignored the empirical research & clinical work over the last three decades in behavioral medicine (including general medicine, nursing, social work, health psychology, public health, patient education). I have expanded the description and arguments made by the biopsychosocial approach with references. Editor's should be mindful that productive discussions of scientific inquiry are best when evidence is provided and integrated in the absence (or at least, restriction) of personal biases. I felt the need to edit the format (edits listed as were made by me prior to registering a Wiki account) simply because I felt the model and its effects were being misrepresented with one-sided, albeit weak, evidence to support a view that was clearly discriminatory toward the biopsychosocial approach.

"biopsychiatric" ? Don't you mean "Biopsychosocial"? Lycurgus (talk) 02:00, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Tag Resolution 2008-07[edit]

Removed undated {{Multiple issues|article=y}} for explicit resolution here.


  • NPOV/CON My reading is that it is not as currently read by a non specialist.
But should say that I am a reductionist. It's not clear if the reason it's thought POV is that it isn't sufficiently enthusiatic about the BPS model. If that's the case then the tag is spurious. Lycurgus (talk) 02:06, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
