I.3. Publicity

Basic publicity about RC should be one-to-one. We try to selectively reach people whom we are prepared to welcome into our Communities and classes.

Presentations in local media (for example, announcements or articles in newsletters or small-circulation newspapers or talks about RC on local talk-radio programs) should be approved by the Area Reference Person (ARP), in consultation with the RRP.

Beyond the local level, the IRP must approve in advance any RC material that will be submitted for publication or shared in an interview. This includes material presented on any electronic media, such as websites, blogs, discussion lists, or online communities. (See Guideline M.3., Electronic Communications.)

REASON

People get an accurate idea of RC from their own experiences with it or from RC literature or lectures or the RC websites <www.rc.org> and . Widespread publicity rarely gives an accurate picture of RC to people who have not experienced a session.

All of us are encouraged to take responsibility for developing RC theory and creatively applying it to our counseling and life situations. However, it is important that the theory be accurately presented.
