Symptoms as Indicators of Unmet Needs
In the current climate of treating mental health problems utilizing the medical model, symptoms may be seen as the problem rather than as valuable indicators of the problem. We will explore the concept of psychological needs from the point of view of humanistic psychology and self-determination theory. Then, we will consider how symptoms may be expressions of unmet needs, and review means for supporting clients in getting their needs met with methods from cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and transactional analysis.
