Overview

The many hats worn by today's media psychologists—as radio psychologists, expert panelists for TV talk shows, commentators for newspapers or TV news shows, and researchers on the effects of media content—exemplify the complex relationship between media and psychology. The evolving and diversifying field of media psychology encourages both consumers and producers to see the media as a vehicle for promoting psychological health and to recognize its power to influence the lives its viewers. Perspectives on Psychology and the Media chronicles the precarious and turbulent journey prior to media psychologists' acceptance and popularity within both the professional psychology and communications industries.
