Seminar Objectives

Achieve an understanding of new education tools that have been proven to reduce violence and bullying in schools and communities.

The attendee will integrate, into their professions, an understanding of

  • The physiological and psychological effects of visual violent imagery,
  • The results of recent brain scan studies demonstrating the effects of media violence on children, and
  • The results of the Stanford Med School SMART Curriculum to cut bullying and violence in half, and to give a double digit increase in standardized test scores.

Presentation Outline

This presentation will address several diverse topics which were brought together by the author’s experiences as:  (1) a military and law enforcement trainer and psychologist, (2) a trainer of health professionals, law enforcement personnel, and first responders in the aftermath of the Jonesboro, Springfield, Littleton, Nickel Mines Amish School, and Virginia Tech school shootings, (3) a consultant in the Paducah school shootings and other major murder cases, and (4) a speaker to the annual conventions of the AMA, APA and AAP.

Initially, we will examine the magnitude of violent crime in the US and around the world, the factors that all the school killers had in common, and the role of media violence as a new factor contributing to this phenomenon.  Then we will address powerful new data demonstrating the actual impact of media violence upon the brain (Indiana University Brain Scan Study) and a powerful new study demonstrating a significant reduction in violence and bullying through media reduction in children (the Stanford SMART Curriculum).  Finally, we will address the role of violent visual imagery (in TV, movies and video games) in causing the current ‘virus of violence’ in families, and in developed nations around the world.
