NB: Choice Theory does not accept the traditional diagnostic labels of psychiatry insofar as they imply that the corresponding behaviours always stem from disorders of the brain or from chemical imbalances. The Choice Theory explanation of pathological symptoms and behaviour contrasts sharply with the more medically-oriented views. Research does need to identify particular client groups and it is for this purpose only that some of the traditional labels are used below.
