Abstract

This paper attempts to measure the significance of New Media as a branch of social sciences and the growing impact it has on other walks of life, specifically its role in social rehabilitation. The word ‘therapy’ is a ubiquitously known term and often used in daily speech in the branch of psychology. Given the new application of new media, the term has now crossed fences over the sphere of media with its application in online communication. The advantages of therapy and social rehabilitation through the online application of new media have been discussed as a central argument. It further seeks to analyze if it triumphs the role of traditional forms of therapy in making the latter a more viable medium today. The role of technology and its impact have certainly impacted the way one looks at the term ‘therapy’ and ‘counseling’. This paper hence seeks to find the effectiveness of online therapy in social rehabilitation in comparison to traditional therapy while examining the perspectives of 3 continents specifically USA, UK and Africa and comparing it with India.
