The difference?


Question Posted Monday December 27 2004, 8:44 pm

Is there a difference between psychologists and psychiatrists? And if there is one, then what is it? I'm just a curious 14yr old freshman, I want to be one of the two when I grow up, but I'm not sure which one because I don't know the difference between the two. I've seen one of the two when I was anorexic, but I don't remember what kind, and I want to be that kind of something of the such. I want to be a "shrink" that works with kids... what exactly would that be?

yes, there is a difference. Quite simply, a psychiatrist can prescribe medications and a psychologist can't. A psychiatrist is an M.D, whereas a psychologist is more often a Ph.D. that's all there is. your particular field would be "child psychiatry/psychology". Good luck on your chosen field. from personal experience, it's s good one.
