It Is Brain Science: Media Violence as a Risk for Aggression

Physicians, Advance Practice Professionals, Nurses, Ancillary Staff, and Medical Students (Rotating).
Violence and aggression are significant public health problems, yet primary care and pediatric providers are not often able to intervene until after there is a problem. Understanding how the media can increase the risk for children to engage in aggression may allow for intervention before there are serious problems.
- Understand the research on media violence through a risk and resilience framework.
- Understand the psychological mechanisms through which media violence has effects.
