Understanding Labels and Diagnoses. OCD, PTSD, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, Borderline Personality Disorder… What do these diagnostic labels mean for strugglers and for those who want to help them? This session explores the origins of our modern psychiatric diagnostic system and provides a balanced critique that neither exalts nor ignores these categories in the context of ministry.
This lecture is from the 2011 National Conference, “Psychiatric Disorders.” Also available as a DVD curriculum designed to be used individually or in a group setting.
