More Americans than ever before are struggling with crippling depression, anxiety, overwhelming stress, and health issues as a result, or in connection with, these mental health issues. Depression is the world’s largest health problem, accounting for more disability than any other disease worldwide (Smith, A world of depression). Often psychology follows the Medical Model of treatment involving diagnosing the problem and developing a treatment plan to address the symptoms present. This method is often focused on treating the symptoms of disorders rather than the underlying causes; the result of this are huge gaps in aspects of the client’s life that are never tended to or addressed. Essentially this is the management of these symptoms rather than the healing of them. Many high-functioning, professional Americans and families find themselves yearning for something more than this model can provide.
