Summary

The growth of media counseling or psychology has been at times spectacular and at times sporadic. People are taking the phenomenon of media counseling seriously. The potential of radio to reach large audiences is overwhelming. There is an opportunity in the 1990s to allow top professionals in every field to reach the public directly with positive messages. There will never be enough mental health professionals to allow one-to-one counseling to be a major source of information to people seeking assistance. Members of the public can ask intelligent questions and can provide additional information through personal experience, regardless of the mental health issues under discussion. The difficulties with media counseling include the fact that very few mental health professionals have any knowledge of media complexities and difficulties. Media counseling has the potential for research. Media counselors should see their roles as educators. They should neither advise major life or lifestyle changes on air nor accept personal referrals, and they should promote the profession. Media counseling will not flourish if psychologists and psychiatrists attempt to solve every problem before embarking on experimental ventures. (ABL)
