Psychiatrists help patients with emotional and behavioral problems. The patients can be bot young and old. There are several different approaches a psychiatrist may use: personal counseling (psychotherapy), psychoanalysis, hospitalization, and medication. Psychiatrists can be office-based, hospital-based, or a combination of the two. Psychiatry consists of many different specialty areas within psychiatry. For instance, some psychiatrists may focus on child and adolescent psychiatry, addiction medicine, or on treating older people. Regardless of this a psychiatrist can be guilty of medical negligence or medical malpractice if their therapy harms, injures or leads to the death of a patient. Psychiatrists are often found guilty of sexually abusing patients more-so than other types of doctors.
