This presentation describes the prescribing role in psychotherapy with emphasis on resolving conflict between the non-directive role of the psychotherapist and the structured didactic role of prescriber. Principles of the therapeutic alliance are utilized to integrate the dual roles of psychotherapist and prescriber. The prescriber role in psychotherapy will be elucidated in integrated and split models of prescribing practice.
