Psychologists are like psychiatrists in that they focus on mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders; however, psychologists do not prescribe and manage medications. Psychologists concentrate on therapeutic sessions and providing individuals with behavioral interventions, sometimes referred to as counseling. Common conditions that are treated by psychologists include addictions, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and more.
Specialized fields include family, child, addictions, relationship, educational, and health psychology. Typically, a counseling session requires an individual to talk through their past, present, and common behaviors, and then utilize guidance from the psychologist to adopt behaviors for a healthier and more stable lifestyle. Psychologists are trained to assist in overcoming a traumatic event, learning how to deal with stress, and improving relationships.
