What is a Psychologist?
A psychologist has clinical training and skills for the purpose of helping patients with their life and mental health issues. A medical professional does not have to have a doctoral degree to practice psychology, but when they do, they are called Doctor's of Psychology. This degree is different from the medical degree that a psychiatrist has because most psychologists can not prescribe medications. However, as part of their studies, they do have training in the uses and effects of common medications used to treat psychological disorders and mental illnesses.
There are a wide variety of psychologists with different specialties but one thing that most have in common is that they conduct evaluations and assessments to determine the problem and from there set up a plan for treating and/or managing it. Depending upon their training, and the needs of the patient, psychologists use techniques such as psychotherapy, cognitive therapy and behavior therapy when working with patients.
Frequently a patient will see a psychologist because of a referral from their general physician, but it's also quite common for people to seek one out on their own if they feel that is what they need.
A psychologist helps patients deal with life stressors and/or mental illnesses, no matter how mild or severe they are. Some of the things that a psychologist does include helping people manage chronic illnesses, helping people with mental illness function better in their day to day lives, working to help people over come addictions, and helping people cope with life stressors.
