Psychiatry Psychology - What is the Difference?

Psychology and psychiatry are professions that involve psychological analysis and treatment of mental disorders. However, their objectives are distinct. The aim of psychology is to study human problems and human beings. The aim of psychiatry is the treatment of mental disorders.

What does a psychiatrist do?
A psychiatrist is a doctor who specialises in mental health. Due to their training, this professional has a vast knowledge of biology, neurochemistry and the causes that could alter the proper functioning of the brain. Therefore, this leads you to look for and distinguish physical causes for the symptoms presented.

For example, thyroid problems can lead to symptoms of depression and anxiety. Occasionally, a stroke can lead to changes in thinking and behaviour. Finally, some medications have side effects that can be confused with other mental health conditions. In this sense, the psychiatrist is able to distinguish these cases from other mental problems. Moreover, he can also use auxiliary diagnostic tests. In short, given his medical training, he will relate the symptoms to the different systems of the organism.

What does a psychologist do?
A psychologist is a mental health professional with a degree in psychology. He is not a doctor. Therefore, he or she cannot prescribe medication. On the other hand, while the doctor mainly studies the functioning of the body, the psychologist looks at how we interact with the environment and how it affects us and vice versa. Therefore, it will do so by identifying which factors contributed to the development of disorders and which factors contribute to maintaining suffering. Thus, through active listening he seeks to understand human behaviour, problems and complaints. Above all, you will listen with empathy and without judgement. However, your role is not only to listen and welcome suffering. From each case, unique and singular, a specific intervention plan is then developed. Thus, it will seek to understand the causes of suffering and share strategies to deal with it.

In short, assessment and intervention are carried out on the basis of instruments, procedures and techniques that have been subjected to scientific studies and are therefore scientifically validated.
