What is the Difference between Psychologists, Psychotherapists and Psychiatrists?
Psychiatrists diagnose and prescribe medicine to clients and psychologists and psychotherapists do not. A psychiatrist uses more of a medical theoretical model. Meaning they look at the brain chemistry, neurology and biology of a client and use drugs to help treat disorders and presenting problems. They are not specialized in talk therapy and many clients can be upset that they didn’t feel listened to or heard by psychiatrists.
