Psychiatry is also interested in other psychiatric disorders in which hereditary factors play a role. These include Schizophrenia, Mood Disorders (Depression and Mania) and some other conditions. In addition, although the existence of hereditary factors has not yet been proven, Personality Disorders, in which adverse experiences in childhood are an important determinant, can also be added.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), other Anxiety Disorders (Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorders, Phobias, Social Phobia, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Eating Disorders, Age Reactions, Sleep Disorders and Sexual Dysfunctions are examples of disorders that are of interest to Psychiatry.
Psychiatry uses clinical interviews, examinations, laboratory tests and imaging methods for diagnosis, and treats the disorders it identifies with pharmacotherapy (medication) and psychotherapy (psychological treatment).
