I was noticing something that could kind of be a Subtrope of this, or maybe its own artistic licence category.

In real life Therapy and Psychiatry are two completely separate professions, but it's treated as one in the same on screen: American Horror Story: Murder House, Frasier, How I Met Your Mother, to name a few, show people who basically act as psychotherapists, but prescribe meds as a psychiatrist will do. Not to mention calling themselves psychiatrists. This dualism is actually rare in real life.

Why did whoever it was delete the examples that don't fall into the subtropes from this page?
