Umm e Aimen’s Answer

Yes it's all about the pateince , if you become a psychiatrist then sometimes you have to convince your patient that they are suffering from a mental health condition, you should have good conversation skills as well. It would take alot of minutes to listen to the patient.

Susan’s Answer

It takes a lot of patience , compassion with boundaries and you cannot allow yourself to be manipulated. All that said I only work with hospitalized patients so the outpatient side may be much different.

Rajesh’s Answer

All fields working with people require patience, tolerance and compassion. These are skills you can develop early on just by practicing with your family and friends.

It's also important to understand the difference in the fields of psychiatry, psychology, social worker, substance abuse counselor. There are a lot of ways to help people with mental health issues. In today's world, psychiatry is more about medication prescription and psychopharmacology. Psychologists and others do counseling. There is a lot of reasons for that but think about working at the highest level of training and license. A psychologist cannot prescribe medications and treat the really severe mentally ill. If psychiatrists did what a psychologist does, then would be available and trained to prescribe medications.

Hope this helps.
