Youth Violence: Electronic Media and Youth Violence — A CDC Research Brief for Researchers

Electronic Media and Youth Violence: A CDC Research Brief for Researchers, coverThe past two decades have witnessed a virtual explosion in new technology that has been eagerly embraced by adolescents. Technology has many social and educational benefits, but it can also provide more opportunities for youth violence and aggression. In September 2006, CDC convened an expert panel to discuss the latest information on how technology is used by young people to behave aggressively. The panel affirmed the need for a purposeful approach to preventing youth violence and aggression perpetrated through the use of electronic media. Electronic Media and Youth Violence: A CDC Research Brief for Researchers describes the current research on electronic aggression, highlights the gaps, and suggests future directions.
