(from the chapter) This chapter provides an overview for research related to the harmful effects of exposure to violence in the media, but with an additional focus on how violence is disseminated through the lens of newer media technology. Much of the research on media violence has traditionally been on the media of television and of course on video games. This media form is not obsolete; rather, for many children and adolescents the medium for this viewing might not be the time-honored television screen but instead the Internet, which offers an array of new issues to consider. The following section examines the role of the Internet as it relates to the concerns we have about the influence of media violence. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
