The Art of Psychiatry
Understanding the impact of one's life experiences, and the interaction with a person's biology and temperament is an art that few have the opportunity to practice on a routine basis. A careful evaluation can reveal several areas of focus for medication and therapy during the treatment of the individual.
It is this art that defines the profession of Psychiatry - especially Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
