Media
Media 

Media is a mainstay in this modern world - it is both shaped  by and shapes user behavior, but it doesn't always impact us all the same way. Nor do we all use media the same. Media users are active in their selection of media that meets their own psycho-social needs and have a tendency to attend to, learn from, and imitate powerful images portrayed in the media of individuals who they can relate to and engage in behaviors that they find favorable. Knowing this, RPCS uses research to identify the ways in which media might impact clients and help clients in therapy and consultation address media's impact on their lives. Since media is here to stay, RPS encourages a healthy relationship with media, helping clients identify ways in which it can be used to meet user goals and increase life satisfaction.

Possible selves represent an individual’s thoughts about what is possible for her future. Through therapy and workshops, RPCS specializes in helping clients identify their possible selves, develop goals, strategies and plans to achieve these possible selves, and learn problem solving skills to manage barriers that may come along. RPCS's main business is helping clients become who they've always wanted to be.
