Beyond Entertainment: Television's Effects on Children and Youth. Television and Socialisation Research Report No. 1.
Recent worldwide studies on the viewing habits of children emphasize the large amount of time spent viewing television and the potential influence that television has to shape the behavior of children. Extensive research has investigated the short and long term effects of viewing television violence, and the results, though complex, suggest that children do learn interpersonal behaviors by observing models presented in television programs. Combined with some fundamental principles of social learning, these findings have led to the design and production of interventions aimed at promoting specific educational and social skills. Results of using such interventions show that social behavior can be enhanced by exposure to appropriate role models via television programing. (EMH)
