Frequent or prolonged exposure creates
“Toxic Stress” that damages the
architecture of the developing brain.
Iowa Department of Public Health-2012
The Society for the Psychological
Study of Social Issues-April 2014
In experimental studies, even brief exposure
to media can cause desensitization to real
world violence, increases in aggressive
thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and
decreases in empathy and helping behavior.
Media violence exposure is linked with
physically hurting others, using words to
hurt others, and deliberately damaging the
relationships of others.

some ugly.
Most video games present a specific problem
that needs to be solved.

games lose track of time, space, and
surroundings and are completely engaged.

Trauma Affects Children in
Many Ways:
Attachment-Relationships contain boundary
and trust issues.

Dissociation-Detachment or
Behavioral Control-Poor impulse control.
Cognition- Learning problems, etc.
Self-Concept-Low self-esteem, shame and
Development- Can be delayed.
Trauma Affected Kids Carry An:
“Invisible Suitcase”
Beliefs that traumatized children develop
are “stored” away.
These beliefs are deeply held and
generally negative.
Children arrive in the system holding on
tightly to their “Suitcase”.
We all have our own “Invisible Suitcase”.
Question: What are some of the beliefs
that may be in a child or teens suitcase?
The habit of recreating old (traumatic)
relationships with new people.
These behaviors evoke in caregivers the
same reactions that traumatized children
experienced with other adults.
This leads to familiar-albeit negativebehaviors.
Child may over (or under) react to
triggering events.
“Online Appetite”
Average U.S. teen spends 9 hours a day
using media—not including school use.
For “Tweens” it is 6 hours.
Boys average 56 minutes a day on video
games vs. girls averaging 7 minutes.
Nearly 2/3 of teens report that they don’t
think using media while doing homework
is any problem at all.

humanity. It involves an act of recruiting,
transporting, transferring, harboring or

hands of traffickers, in their own
countries and abroad.”United Nations Office on Drugs and

parents, peers, schools, etc.
Many teens now receive “sex education”
online watching porn.
Much of what’s viewed is brutal,
humiliating, and often depicts women being
degraded by several men.
Hardcore voyeurism substitutes for
meaningful-romantic relationships.
4 out of 5 16 year olds regularly access porn
online (Dr. John Woods-2012).
