Psychiatrist / Psychologist - What's the Difference?

Mental Health Professional with Patient

When I meet someone new I am almost invariably asked, “So what do you do for a living?” Technically I am a psychiatrist, child and adolescent psychiatrist as well as a forensic psychiatrist. However, this is a really long answer to a short question so I usually just say “I’m a psychiatrist”. If a person wants to know more specifics about my career then I elaborate from there. Either way, almost every single person responds with some variation of, “Oh – you’re a psychologist. Interesting.”
