Children and adolescents now spend more than seven hours a day with a variety of different media. How does that affect their attitudes and behavior, and what can health professionals do about it? This study will discuss the latest research on the impact of media on adolescents, illustrated with abundant examples of both “good” and “bad” media. In addition, a brief section will involve media training for health professionals about health-related issues important to them-how to talk to newspaper reporters, radio interviewers and appear on TV. Topic areas will include media violence, substance abuse, sex and sexuality and the importance of the internet, social networking sites and cell phones. The aims of this study are: To illustrate the nature of current media for children and adolescents (topic areas: sex, birth control advertising, body self-image, obesity and eating disorders); to discuss the impact of a variety of media with an emphasis on impact of TV on children and teens and how such effects were determined by research and; to emphasize how the adverse effects of TV and other media can be mediated by parents and by school media literacy program.
