Abstract: (from the cover) “Adolescents and the Media” provides a state-of-the-art review of research findings on the influence of such media as TV, 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. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
