Intersections of Media Effects Research: Developing Socially Responsible Media Production

Are we influenced by what we watch? Psychologist and media consultant Danya Braunstein talks us through some of the vital research into how individuals’ thoughts, attitudes and beliefs are affected by the media they consume. She dispels some of the myths around media effects, and she proposes how media producers can adopt a socially responsible approach to producing their content. Danya is joined by her Macquarie Uni colleague Chanelle Tarabay for a Q & A at the end.
