I need some assistance with these assignment. does violence in the media cause violence in the audience Thank you in advance for the help! Professionals and scholars in psychology/ sociology/ and related studies seek to determine and evaluate the impact, which media violence produces on different population groups. A mountain of research has been performed to confirm that media violence causes detrimental effects on the psychology and behaviors in children and adults, who expose themselves to television. Society tends to believe that violence on the screen is the source of the serious negative impacts on the quality of society’s wellbeing and can be directly responsible for the raise of aggressiveness and violence in individuals and groups.
Rather, the goal of this paper is to prove that the current body of scientific evidence is at least scarce to position media violence as a source of aggression in the audience. Theories and research findings will be used to either deny the direct impact of media violence on the audience or to suggest the existence and relevance of factors other than media violence, which may cause violence desensitization in the audience and thus result in more violent responses to media exposure. This paper is expected to confirm the need for further analysis with regard to the effects of violent media on the audience.
That society is being increasingly concerned about the impact of violent media on children and adults is difficult to deny: the growing wealth of literature on the topic confirms the need for investigating the specific forms of influence, which media produce on different population groups. It is even more important to define, whether violent media can be considered as the direct prerequisite for the development of aggressive behaviors in children and adults. Until present, the studies of media violence have been focused on the variety of topics and have resulted in the development of several important conceptualizations of the link between media and aggressive behaviors in the audience. . .
