What Do Psychiatrist Do ?

The primary work of the psychiatrists is diagnosis of the patient's problems, followed by treatment, which include medication, counseling, psychotherapy or electrotherapy. Often psychiatrists conduct counselling sessions , not only with the patients, but also with their families. They use techniques such as hypnosis and abreaction for the treatment.

Psychiatrists also work with occupational therapists and social workers for the rehabilitation of their patients, helping them to resume their normal activities. They also conduct behaviour therapies not only through the use of medicines, but also by using various techniques for desensitizing the patient. These include the techniques of hypnosis and abreaction.

Highly suicidal patients are treated by means of Electric Convulsive Therapy or ECT and through tranquilizers when counselling and psychotherapy does not work.
