The COVID-19 pandemic provided professionals with unprecedented opportunities to work with the media to influence public opinion and behavior.

In this webinar, four psychologists discuss their activities across media outlets, including blogs, the popular press, radio, and TV. They will provide examples of their work and discuss how they were approached by the media or pitched their stories. In addition, they will provide hypotheses about why some of their quotes did not appear in the final product. The four psychologists will also cover the ethical issues that sometimes arise in interviews and methods for providing evidence-based but accessible information.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss examples of successful interactions with the media.
  2. Identify some ineffective ways of dealing with the media.
  3. Describe some ethical concerns that arise when dealing with the media.

 

This webinar will be recorded and available on-demand within 24 hours following the live presentation. If you have registered, and cannot view or missed the live webinar, please contact [email protected].

Dr. Chapman and ADAA

"I joined ADAA in 2008 and became involved in 2010 when I discovered that ADAA is a natural outlet for my research. I soon realized after joining ADAA that a number of my colleagues not only attend ADAA's annual conference but are also actively involved in the organization's governance. I enjoy my ADAA membership for several, interrelated reasons. ADAA has increasingly valued diversity and makes issues pertaining to diversity salient throughout all facets of its educational programming. Additionally, I thoroughly enjoy my time at ADAA conferences where I can not only spend time catching up with colleagues, but also attend an exceptionally diverse program pertaining to anxiety and related concerns. Presenting at ADAA is always extremely enjoyable and the increased emphasis on technology and social media is absolutely refreshing! Additionally, ADAA is truly innovative in leveraging the intersection between consumers and mental health providers. By engaging constituents through monthly Twitter Chats (one of my favorite components), webinars, and blog posts, ADAA truly facilitates dissemination and public education."

Dr. Rego and ADAA

“I have been an active member of the ADAA since joining in 2007! I started getting involved by presenting a poster at the annual conference in Savannah, Georgia in 2008 and don’t think I’ve missed a conference since joining! I love the mission, focus, and multidisciplinary membership of ADAA. It’s also just the right size to be comprehensive in what it can offer, while still being nimble enough to address emerging issues in the field and meet the needs of its members.

There’s a real sense of community –and not just at the conference. It creates opportunities to connect throughout the year with colleagues with research and clinical backgrounds, at all levels of training, and across various disciplines.

Over the years, I’ve been able to participate in the association as a poster presenter, as well as both a panelist and chair of several clinical roundtables and workshops. I’ve also been able to get involved in the association’s governance, first as a committee member, then as a committee chair, and finally, as a member of the Board of Directors! More recently, I was honored to have been selected to lead a master clinician session at the 2020 conference in San Antonio, TX. Following this, I, along with my esteemed colleague here at Montefiore Medical Center-Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Dr. Jonathan Alpert, will be co-chairing the 2021 conference in Boston, MA! All of this has helped my work in terms of making connections for collaborations, strengthening my CV for academic promotion, and helping with patient referrals for my practice.

It really is an organization with something for everyone. It is especially welcoming of more junior members and emphasizes integrating diverse perspectives. We are all going to work with patients with anxiety and depression during the course of our careers, so I can’t imagine why someone in our field would not want to join! What better way to stay on top of current developments?”
