Overview

Violent television programs, gory video games, print tobacco advertising, TV beer commercials, and sexually suggestive music videos. How do these and other forms of popular media affect the thinking, behavior, and health of America's teenagers? Adolescents and the Media provides a state-of-the-art review of research findings on the influence of such media as television, movies, video games, print advertising, rock music, and music videos on adolescents. Beginning with a theoretical and conceptual background of adolescent development, the book covers findings on violence, sexual activity, substance abuse, and eating disorders, and makes a clear case that media play a distinct role in diverse facets of at-risk behavior and adjustment. This book concludes with recommended strategies for preventing adverse media effects on youth.
