Both a psychologist and a psychiatrist can hold therapy sessions with the child in question. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor that has received specialized training after the standard medical school stint, whereas a psychologist is not. Psychiatrists are also the only one out of the two who can write prescriptions for medication. Usually, a psychologist will work with the child first, and if he or she determines that there is a need for medicine, he or she will then refer the child to the psychiatrist.
Most all practicing licensed child psychologists have a PhD.
The advantages of being a child psychologist is the reward one can get with helping children overcome their disabilities and deficiencies.
