Additional features of the profession, as well as the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist and psychotherapist

The nature of the work is mainly indoors, sedentary.

A medical contraindication to this profession is: the presence of infectious or mental illness.

It is important to understand that a psychologist, unlike a psychotherapist and, especially, a psychiatrist, does not have a medical education and works only with mentally healthy people, carrying out prophylaxis and assisting in solving psychological problems.

Specialties, related professions: expert psychologist, psychotherapist, psychiatrist, personnel manager.

Very often people do not understand the difference between a psychologist, a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist at all, they mix all these concepts into something foggy and mystical. Especially, after Kashpirovsky’s television sessions, many formed the opinion that a psychotherapist is one who can make a person swing like a Chinese blockhead or dissolve his stitches. Some generally confuse the concept of psychotherapy with hereditary magicians, sorcerers, healers, fortune tellers, etc. Moreover, the latter often add the word "therapist" in their ads ...

So who is a therapist? A psychotherapist is a doctor. A person who has received a higher medical education and has completed a specialization in psychotherapy. A practicing psychologist is not a doctor, therefore, he cannot prescribe medications (if necessary) for you (the same antidepressants in cases of severe clinical depression or sedatives for panic attacks or phobias).

A psychiatrist is also a doctor, but a doctor who works with "more serious mental conditions."

The difference between a psychotherapist and a psychiatrist is that the psychotherapist owns (is required to own) the methods of psychotherapeutic interaction with the patient.
Psychotherapeutic interaction is a therapeutic interaction in which a person has the opportunity to more objectively consider his mental problem, turn to his internal resources, relive “forgotten” experiences, and receive support. Unfortunately, this is not always possible at an appointment with a psychotherapist in a clinic. Since the doctor in the clinic does not have enough time not only to conduct an individual psychotherapy session, but also often just to carefully listen to the patient.

A psychologist is not a doctor, but a specialist who will help: learn to find ways out of crisis situations, believe in oneself, find internal reserves, and get out of depression.

The reasons for contacting a psychologist are very different:

? Dissatisfaction with oneself.

? Depression.

? Lack of understanding with loved ones.

? Separation or divorce.

? Conflict situation at work.

? The psychologist will help to understand the pros and cons of a choice. Answer many questions:

? How to gain self-confidence?

? How to behave in a particular situation?

? How to find a common language with a loved one?

? How to overcome a depressed mood?

Turning to a psychologist in this case is one of the best options.
