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

The nature of the work - mainly in the room, sedentary.

Medical contraindication to this profession is: the presence of infectious or mental diseases.

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 preventive measures and assisting in solving psychological problems.

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

Very often, people in general do not understand the difference between a psychologist, a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist; they mix all these concepts into something vague and mystical. Especially, after the Kashpirovsky TV shows, many have formed the opinion that a psychotherapist is someone who can make a person sway like a Chinese dummy or dissolve his stitches. Some even confuse the concept of psychotherapy with hereditary magicians, sorcerers, healers, soothsayers, etc. Moreover, the latter often add the word "psychotherapist" in their ads ...

So who is a psychotherapist? A psychotherapist is a doctor. A person who has received higher medical education and has passed a specialization in psychotherapy. A practicing psychologist is not a doctor, therefore, he cannot prescribe (if necessary) medications (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 is proficient in (obliged to own) 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, experience “forgotten” experiences, and get support. Unfortunately, it is not always possible at the reception of a psychotherapist in the clinic. Since in the clinic the doctor does not have enough time not only to conduct an individual psychotherapy session, but often to just listen carefully to the patient.

A psychologist is not a doctor, but a specialist who will help: learn how to find ways out of crisis situations, believe in your strength, find internal resources, get out of depression.

The reasons for applying to a psychologist are various:

? Dissatisfaction with yourself.

? Depression.

? The lack of understanding with loved ones.

? Parting 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 this or that situation?

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

? How to overcome a depressed mood?

Appeal to the psychologist in this case is one of the optimal options for action.
