  • Abstract: er gives an account of recently completed research on the effects of violent TV images on early adolescents. This work deals with the question of the influence of the (small) screen on early adolescents presented differentially with violent and non-violent images using both group and individual clinical approaches. In particular, the work has tried to deal with one particular question: in what ways might groups and images interfere with each other and lead to violent behaviours? (Even though violent images are usually held responsible for violent behaviours). Violent pictures increase childrens’ vulnerability to the group violence: children who have seen such images experience sensations, emotions and bodily states which are hard to control and are therefore disturbing. These children are tempted to adopt the reference points of their peer group or even those of the group leader. It can therefore be said that the violence preparation for group violence, in turn further intensifies the violence of the (original) images. Certain proposals have been abstracted from this research for the use in establishing media- and image-education programs. The authors believe this could lead to a return towards the real purpose of the school: the teaching of the symbolisation of life’s experiences using all possible means.
