How Human Rights are Different: Purpose of Interventions

Human Rights  Support & develop together everyone’s capacity for reason and conscience Medical/ Psychiatry  Manage the illness & limit damage to self or others  Clinical Psychology  Change maladaptive patterns and behaviors Trauma- Informed Care  Contain reactivity, heal the trauma
Each of the four paradigms has its own unique reasons for the way it responds.  Again we find human rights markedly different.

1. Disease model psychiatry  

The disease model seeks primarily to manage the 'illness' and limit potential damage to self or others.

2. Conventional 'talk' therapy

Conventional talk therapy is often trying to change maladaptive patterns and behaviors

3. Trauma-Informed Care

Trauma-informed care generally hopes to contain reactivity and heal the trauma.

4.  Human Rights 

In the human rights paradigm, people support each other to develop everyone's capacity for reason and conscience and to provide access to basic needs for all.

That's all for now.

We will talk about another slide later.
