Media Interviews: Free Publicity While Helping the Public
Presented by Pauline Wallin, Ph.D.
Being quoted in print media, or appearing in TV or radio news, is a great way to educate the public on the application of psychological in everyday life. It can also enhance your professional credibility. However, many clinicians shy away from media coverage, because they don’t think they are “expert” enough, or because they’re not sure about the ethics of doing media interviews.
In this webinar Dr. Wallin will demystify these assumptions. She will walk you through the steps of connecting with journalists, preparing for the interview, and delivering effective, science-based sound bites that the public can relate to.
