Stranger in Your Living Room

I haven't had a chance to read all of this but what I have read I found very interesting. These free downloads are sections of an online book about the negative effects of media. Free Handouts are also available.

Dr. Peter DeBenedittis is one of America's leading experts on media education and prevention. Peter has consulted for the Centers for Disease Control, the American Medical Association, and the White House Office on Drug Control Policy. Dr. D. regularly keynotes at education, prevention, health promotion, and media conventions. Annually, he speaks to more than 50,000 students (kindergarten through college) and trains more than 1,000 teachers and health/prevention activists on how to use science-based media education for prevention.

Using state-of-the-art multimedia deconstructions, Peter can educate, while entertaining, on the topics of tobacco prevention, underage and binge drinking, violence prevention, eating disorders, body image, parenting around media, and consumerism.

Having previously run an ad agency for 10 years, Peter D. now uses his advertising knowledge to educate for prevention rather than seduce for profits. He was featured in a recent episode of the CBS new magazine 48 Hours for his work teaching media literacy.
