Question by the guy: What is the difference between Psychology and Psychiatry?
I’m interested about psychology. I bought a book today about Psychiatry mistakenly for a Psychology book.
Answer by rpg
Psychiatry is a medical subspecialty. You have to have an MD first in order to become a psychiatrist. It looks at issues of mental health from a medical perspective.
Psychology is a social science; it looks at issues of mental health more from a perspective of personal history/experience, social experience, etc.
