Psychiatry & Psychology

Psychology and Psychiatry are professions which complement each other in the study, identification and treatment of mental health problems. They both cover the large areas of research in the complex web of human behaviour, in both normal and abnormal cases.

Psychology is generally the Science of the Mind. It is the scientific study of how the human mind works and it emphasises on how the physical brain interact personality, intellect, environment, life experience and brain chemistry work together and help creating a unique individual. Psychiatry is the branch of medicine which is concerned with the understanding, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the mind. The disorders can involve emotions, behaviour, perceptions and cognition (thinking). Psychiatry is one of the most varied, interesting and rewarding specialties in medicine. Every day can be different and every patient seen is unique.

According to the lay public shares, there is a major misunderstanding between the differences in the roles of Psychiatrists and Psychologists. The both professionals have a basic difference in their nature of training. Psychologists are the trained personnel in Psychology programs from university hat focus on the connections between the brain and behaviour, research techniques, and methods of treating behaviour problems. On the other hand, a Psychiatrist is a medical doctor or M.D. who should be specialized in both the study of the physical brain and psychology, and also how these interact to create the human personality. The nature of their training permits psychiatrists to prescribe medication as a means of helping a client to deal with their problems.
