Many people want to know the idea about Psychiatry
Then what is Psychiatry?
Psychiatry is the branch of medicine that deals with the study, treatment and prevention of mental illness. This term was first found by the German physician Johann Christian Reil in 1808. This has been explained as an intermediatary between the world from a social context from the perspective of those who are mentally ill. Comparable with surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics this is a speciality of clinical medicine.
Who are Psychiatrists?
Psychiatrists complete the medical training as same as other physicians and receive an M.D.degree and their training is around field of medicine. They specialize in doctor-patient relationship and are trained to different levels in field of psychotherapy and other therapeutic communication techniques.
But Psychiatrists differ from Psychologists. Psychiatrists can counsel patients, prescribe medication, utilize neuroimaging in a research setting, order laboratory tests and conduct physical examinations. Child Psychiatrists specialize in the treatment of children, forensic Psychiatrists specialize in the legal aspects of psychiatry, such as determination of mental competence in criminal cases.
Psychoanalysts complete 3 to 5 years of training in a special psychotherapeutic technique called psychoanalysis in which the patient freely relates her or his thoughts to the analyst, who does not interfere in the flow of thoughts.
Who is a Psychologist? What is the difference between psychologist and psychiatrist?
Psychologist is a nonmedical person who is trained in methods of psychotherapy, analysis, and research and completes a Ph.D degree in a specific filed of interest, such as experimental psychology, social psychology or clinical psychology.
