Brief description of training and roles of
some professionals in the field of the psyche

Psychiatrists are medically qualified doctors who have gained postgraduate experience and training in the treatment of emotional and mental disturbances. Like general physicians in the medical field, they have overall responsibility for the assessment and management of all types of psychiatric in-patients and out-patients, including those with organic and functional psychoses, neuroses, and personality problems. Their treatment may be more often physically based, especially for the psychoses, using drugs and ECT, but also offers the vital support of hospital admission or day-care that is essential in many conditions. Supportive psychotherapy is provided by the general psychiatrist and other members of his team, such as social worker, nurse, or occupational therapist. Some training in psychotherapy is recommended for every psychiatrist, who should now reach practitioner level in at least one specified psychotherapy and have a working knowledge of other therapies.

Psychologists are usually not medically qualified, but have a degree in psychology – the study of mental processes and behaviour, normal and abnormal. After graduation they may specialize in academic, educational, industrial, or clinical psychology. Clinical psychologists in the past were chiefly employed to administer intelligence, personality, and neurodiagnostic tests, but are now more autonomous offering important therapeutic roles. They have played a leading part in furthering behavioural psychotherapy and cognitive therapy (p. 228), many are active in dynamic psychotherapy, and some go on to train in the special fields of psychoanalysis, group analysis, and family and marital therapy.
