Media Violence Research and the FCC

Posted Apr 09 2009 7:14pm

Due to the FCC's forthcoming propsal to regulate violence on television, CMCH recently sent out a press release about our resources on media violence.

The majority of studies over the last 50 years have concluded that media violence does have effects on the attitudes and behaviors of children and teens, ranging from increases in fear and desensitization to higher levels of aggressive behavior.

"Our goal was to gather all of the studies in a single location and present them in a standardized form to create the first interdisciplinary library of research on media effects," Brandy King, librarian for CMCH, said in a statement from Children's. "We chose violence as our first research topic because it is the most thoroughly investigated area of media effects."
