Abstract

Researchers in recent years have begun to examine the role of the mass media both in contributing to adolescent violent behavior and as a valuable means of intervention. This chapter examines the role of the mass media in contributing to violent behavior, suicide, and alcohol consumption and abuse. For each area of discussion, the authors review the literature on the media's contribution to these health problems as well as suggestions for prevention strategies that involve the mass media as a tool for education.
