The Relationship of Marriage to Psychological Well-being

  • R. Taylor Segraves
Part of the Critical Issues in Psychiatry book series (CIPS)

Abstract

As mentioned in the previous chapter, mental health professionals have been predominantly concerned with the treatment of psychiatrically impaired individuals. Similarly, most theoretical systems of psychiatric intervention have tended to stress individual psychopathology. This chapter is included to question whether this emphasis on treatment of individual psychopathology is warranted and to specifically question whether there shouldn’t be more emphasis on the intervention in marital and family systems. My purpose is not to negate the importance of studying individual psychopathology but to suggest that it might be more profitable to think of mental disturbance as the result of individual liabilities reacting with social influences, particularly relationships with emotional intimates. Psychopathology conceptualized in this manner gives equal weight to individual and social systems levels of intervention.
