Vicarious Violence on TV: A Challenge to LRE. Technical Assistance Bulletin No. 16.
Hepburn, Mary A.
Maintaining that the sociological implications of violence on television should be a serious concern to law-related education (LRE) professionals, this bulletin describes the importance of the television media, examines the effects of violent television programs, and discusses possible implications for LRE educators. Included in the pamphlet is an eight-item annotated resource list to be used by members of the LRE community interested in helping to educate students about violence on television. The pamphlet concludes that through increased attention to the problem of violence on television, young people may become wise consumers of television programming and thus can better influence the overall quality of television programming. Contains 18 references. (TSV)
