Abstract

This article highlights research findings and practical applications shared with over 1,800 professionals, volunteers, and parents during a national cooperative extension satellite series focused on entertainment media violence. Participants increased their awareness and understanding of the potential negative effects of entertainment media violence, as well as identified and took specific steps to address the issue locally. Extension is positioned well through its vast network and technology to deliver high-quality, timely, and cost-effective professional development to community partners.
