In my experience, the shrinks (for me that means specifically psychiatrist as opposed to psychologist or therapist) tend to be more clinical, less sensitive, so I’m not surprised to hear this. I think technically they are supposed to be able to provide some level of counseling or advice, but, like I said, I’ve found them to be lacking in that area, and I’ve always just seen them to be assessed for medication. I’ve always had someone who works specifically as a therapist to do my therapy. I’ve had psychiatrist try to give me advice or guidance and, while they haven’t been wrong, I usually have just sat there and nodded my head and waited for them to make their decision that week about my medication – continue, increase, decrease or change.
