Frequently Asked Psychologist Questions

Individuals who are experiencing psychological distress or mental disease can be evaluated, diagnosed, and treated by clinical psychologists. In addition to this, they establish treatment plans and carry out psychotherapy.


Clinical psychologists frequently find employment in healthcare facilities such as hospitals and mental health clinics, in addition to private practice. They are educated in a variety of therapeutic methods, although they may choose to specialize in the treatment of particular problems or in the treatment of particular groups. For instance, a clinical psychologist might choose to specialize on the treatment of substance misuse, the mental health of children or adolescents, the mental health of adults, or the mental health of elderly people.


Despite the fact that clinical psychologists frequently operate in medical settings, they are not medical doctors and, in most instances, they are unable to prescribe pharmaceuticals.

It is common practice to use a psychiatrist’s capacity to administer medication as the primary criterion for separating a psychologist from a psychiatrist. When it comes to the treatment of mental diseases, only a psychiatrist is allowed to administer medicine whereas a psychologist is not. Since 2002, the practices of prescribing medicine for the treatment of mental health illnesses by psychologists have been legalized in only three states: New Mexico, Louisiana, and most recently, Illinois.

The most effective course of treatment for many conditions is one that combines talk therapy with the appropriate use of medicinal substances. Because most psychologists do not have the authority to prescribe medicine, they frequently collaborate with psychiatrists or primary care physicians in order to provide their patients with access to the essential medical treatment that they require. It may be easier for certain patients to receive the most effective treatment if psychologists were allowed to prescribe medicines for them.

Although the majority of clinical psychologists are focused on providing treatment, many of them also draw from academic literature and psychological research for their work. They operate in a manner quite similar to that of medical doctors, who base their treatment decisions on findings from medical research. Nevertheless, psychologists are not allowed to write prescriptions for drugs.

In particular, the education and training of psychologists are guided by the research conducted in the field of behavioral science. This research provides insights into the ways in which people who have mental health disorders react to stress and other external variables. In addition, clinically-based treatments are a part of behavioral science.

The treatment is the primary emphasis of counseling and mental health therapists as well. On the other hand, they frequently rely more on philosophical and rhetorical theories, in addition to clinical observations made over extended periods of time, than they do on research.

When put into practice, this indicates that a psychologist may have a more comprehensive understanding of the science and academic literature of psychology as a basis for their treatment.
