What is the difference between psychology and psychiatry?

Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes while psychiatry is a branch of medicine. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who provide both medical and psychological therapy treatments.

Psychologists can counsel patients, as can psychiatrists, but only psychiatrists can prescribe medicinal drugs and therapy treatments.

Psychiatrist - Some one who has earned MD and has taken general medicine. Can prescribe medicine. After MD has to have residency training for 4 yrs. Deals with mentally and emotionally imbalanced people.

Psychologist - Studies for 4 to 6 yrs about animal and human behavioral perceptions. Cannot prescribe medicine. Works tangently with psychiatrist to analise patients. Also has to hav 2-4 yrs of training under professionals.

Clinical psychology and health psychology are not entirely separated fields of research or practice. Nonetheless, clinical psychology focuses on the causes, prevention, and treatment of abnormal psychological disorders, while health psychology focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of physical disorders that are impacted by psychological processes.Health psychology grew from clinical psychology as a sub-specialty. It has previously been known as behavioral medicine. How people respond to the dissemination of health education, how they make decisions about harmful behaviors (e.g., smoking or drug use), how they manage complex diseases (e.g., diabetes), how to impact psycho-physiological disorders (e.g., essential hypertension or psychologically induced urticaria), and how to reduce stress that exacerbates physical disorders are instances of the foci of health psychology.A related field that has emerged over the past couple of decades is psycho-neuro-immunology.

What is the success rate for the abuser's recovery given all possible forms of therapy for the particular kind of abuse?

If there is an addiction there might be a slight chance of getting rid of the addiction and maybe them turning there life around, but all drugs and alcohol does is allow them to do what they want that they know they couldn't do if they were sober, I was abused when I was 9 months pregnant and he didnt drink or drugs, his dad was abusive to his mother, its what he knows and nothing can stop him. don't let a man raise his hand to you twice, people don't change, some might want to but after a while they go back. that's just my experience.

Are there different types of vaginas?

Vaginas come in slightly different shapes/sizes, but they all have 2 basic purposes--as a birth canal and as a sex organ for pleasure and obtaining sperm. Vaginas can expand greatly when aroused and even more during child-birth.

Viginas are all basically the same.The outward detailing may vary a bit.But on the inside most women look the same.

What happens at an initial psychiatric assessment?

You will be asked a lot of questions about yourself, your family relationships, your current concerns, any past issues, physical health history, cultural identifications, religious beliefs, educational history, drug/alcohol history, employment history, etc.... Its a pretty long assessment and can take several sessions, depending on the person giving the assessment. It will be a very personal set of questions, and my be uncomfortable to answer at times, but the reason there are so many questions is so that the person giving the assessment can get a clear and overall picture of your life and your circumstances....this will be essential in diagnosing, treatment recommendations, etc... Remember, everything that goes on in the session is confidential and will not be shared with anyone unless you give specific consent, so it is best if you are honest in your answers so that you receive the best care.

Answer 2: I had to have a psych assessment, they really try to get at the root of your mental health issue so you are asked a lot of questions about your personal and family life, your friends/associates, do you smoke, drink, take drugs, hobbies and the list goes on and on. It may be uncomfortable, but the objective is to find out who you really are and what is your life like. Thats the only way they know how to develop a treatment plan going forward.

Is psychiatry pseudoscience?

It is arguable. There are many different types of sciences, such as soft science and hard science and many in-betweens. It is a political minefield. Thus far they have not come nearly as far as they have claimed they have from generation to generation and the ever growing number of academic psychiatrists who are getting caught with conflicts of interest in their research is making this a more difficult issue to understand than ever.

I recommend reading Robert Whitaker's Anatomy of An Epidemic.

What schools are best for psychiatry?

First, you must understand that before someone can consider the field of psychiatry, they must first be a medical doctor. Most 4-year campuses can provide the coursework for pre-med, and the tough part is deciding which medical school is in your budget.

Second, there are many different areas to subspecialize in psychiatry. While getting the medical doctor degree, you would need to figure out which specific set of ideas you want to follow and what institutions will offer what you need. Many times the choice of schools or programs is based on the advice of a teacher you admire.

Third, it isn't really the school, but what you put into your study, what professors take an interest in you and what you, yourself, get out of your instruction and put to use in the "real world". Just because someone goes to Harvard or John Hopkins doesn't mean that they will be any good to the people who need the help.

How do you detach yourself from your therapist?

If you mean "wean" yourself from him/her... lengthen the time between visits. If you want to get rid of them, just do not go back. The therapist is a professional not your friend. You can also bring up the subject with the therapist in question (assuming the situation is not a dysfunctional one), and the two of you can come up with a "weaning off" plan that would be appropriate for you.

What did Carl Jung use to study for?

Carl Jung (1875-1961), Swiss psychiatrist, was the father of analytical psychology. Jung thought that people share collective unconscious, appearing archetype, including mythology, and symbols and patterns that appear in dreams. He also theorized that there is a female element in the unconscious of men -- the anima -- and a male element in the unconscious of women -- the animus. Jung believed that extroversion and introversion with four functions (thinking, feeling, sensing and intuition) were integral in the study of personality types. The aim of individuation is wholeness, through the integration of unconscious forces and motivations underlying human behavior. During it, the human "I" (Ego) deals with Persona in conscious, and faces the Shadow, Anima/Animus and Self archetype in unconscious.
