Just as we now do with aging and ADHD we once medicalized homosexuality and masturbation In The Medicalization of Society Peter Conrad argues that society pathologizes diversity and reduces people s acceptance of behaviors that fall outside of predetermined norms While medicalization or viewing issues from a medical perspective brings benefits to the sick it also creates illnesses so that pharmaceutical companies and others can profit Take male baldness or female breast augmentation both emerge as ways for individuals to alter their bodies to meet a stupid and harmful and shallow societal conception of beautyAs an aspiring clinical psychologist I loved Conrad s critical approach to medicalization and how he uestioned many concepts several people take for granted Medicalization both heals many and harms many and by accepting it as neither good nor bad we can work to enhance its benefits and minimize its negatives For example many psychiatrists and others in the medical field encourage antidepressants or other drugs to cope with mental illness even when several studies support the efficacy of therapy over drug treatments alone Medicalization intersects with money and with politics the amazing work of gay rights activists and how they decreased public perception of homosexuality as disease shows how we can work to change the status uo for the better Conrad includes many relevant examples as he writes about the expansion of medicalization and its conseuencesOverall a well written book I would recommend to anyone interested in health sociology or psychology One main takeaway you do not have to take medicine to make your problems real From my studies and personal experiences I perceive that with the rise of the biomedical model people feel biased toward medicine to legitimize their issues and to work as a uick fix for their struggles But many holistic and effective therapies exist even if they involve effort than swallowing a pill
