What is the difference between Psychiatrist & Psychology??

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Psychology is a scientific study of a human mind. While psychiatrist is a medical practitioner specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

You are getting better now than before. That can be judged from the way you talk. You should always remember that you have your family who love you and support you unconditionally. To step back one thousand steps, you have everything to lose but not the love from your family.

The marriage counsellor could be a psychologist or even "just" a counselor, or in rare circumstances, a psychiatrist. Ask what their qualifications are if unsure.

A counselor can be a psychiatrist or psychologist or a minister or a social worker or someone with similar credentials and training. It is generally someone who has received training in how to listen and identify/ understand problems the other person is experiencing. There are different types of counselors with different abilities to help. One counselor can also refer you to another counselor who has more skills or specific training that may be more appropriate to your needs. The woman conducting the class at the Woman's center may or may not be a counselor. She may be a teacher instead or just someone who is very well informed and compassionate.


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
