Media representations and responsibilities: Discussion paper

This 2013 discussion paper summarises research on five areas of community concern about the media: the portrayal of violence in children's media; advertising, especially when directed at children; the portrayal of crime; portrayals of mental illness; and representations of ethnic diversity and conflict between ethnic groups.

Psychologists, the wider community and members of the media are then provided with evidence-based recommendations for responding to these issues in ways that aim to minimise the negative effects that have been identified, and maximise the positive potential of the media.
