Abstract

Engel's (1977) biopsychosocial model was hailed as a breakthrough but criticized by some as being too complex, time-consuming, and difficult to master. Herman (1989) proposed an alternative "transitional" model that uses both biomedical and biopsychosocial frames. Here, the authors update applications of the biopsychosocial model since publication of their book, The Biopsychosocial Approach: Past, Present, Future in 2003.
