Psychologists and Psychotherapists

A Psychiatrist is a physician who specializes in psychiatry & mental health, including a substance use disorder which is to say in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. Psychiatrists are medical doctors, unlike psychologists, and must evaluate patients to determine whether their symptoms are the result of a physical illness, a combination of physical and mental illness, or a strictly psychiatric one. As part of the clinical assessment process they may employ a mental status examination, a physical examination, brain imaging such as computerized tomography (CT/CAT scan), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET) scanning, and blood testing. A Psychologist is a professional who evaluates and studies behavior and mental processes. Psychologists are generally described as being either "applied" or "research-orientated. Psychologists aim to reduce the emotional distress and improve the psychological wellbeing of their clients. They use psychological methods and research to make positive changes to their clients' lives and offer various forms of treatment. A Psychotherapist interacts with patients to initiate change in the patient's thoughts, feelings, and behavior through adaptation. Psychotherapists provide treatment in individual and group settings. They work with individuals, couples, families and groups to help them overcome a range of psychological and emotional issues. They work with clients of all ages who have a variety of different mental or physical health issues.
