To prepare for this Discussion:
Review the article, “The elephant on the couch: Side-effects of psychotherapy.” Reflect on how labels, language, and belief systems may impact prevention, intervention, and consultation endeavors, including their impact on both the client(s) served and the treatment or consultation process. Also reflect on how strategies to minimize iatrogenic harm may be applied in these endeavors.
Think about other ways that iatrogenic harm may occur in prevention, intervention, or consultation endeavors, and how the factors that contribute to it may be minimized.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 a description of two or more factors that may contribute to iatrogenic harm in prevention, intervention, or consultation endeavors. Using specific examples, explain the potential impact of each factor on the client(s) and the prevention, intervention, or consultation process. Then, explain how latrogenic harm from each of these factors may be minimized, again using specific examples.
