It is now very common for people experiencing mental and emotional distress to be given a psychiatric diagnosis. This includes many clients seeking and receiving counselling and psychotherapy. This session will offer a conceptual overview of psychiatric diagnosis and the classification of mental disorders, along with providing an insight into how a psychiatric diagnosis is made. It will also consider the range of subjective meanings and psychosocial consequences of receiving a psychiatric diagnosis and explore some of the implications for our work as counsellors and psychotherapists.
