Como compreendem as crianças
a violência do ecrã?

How Children Interpret Screen Violence é o título de um estudo de 90 páginas que acaba de ser divulgado no Reino Unido. Foi realizado por quatro instituições: the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), the BBC, the Broadcasting Standards Commission (BSC) and the Independent Television Commission (ITC).
O documento já se encontra disponível online.
No press release enviasdo aos media, refere-se:

"Children are more prone than adults to judge scenes as violent according to their real life consequences and moral status, rather than simply on the basis of what is shown (...).
How ‘violent’ an image is depends on whether the violence was justified – and how closely it relates to children’s own lives. The report which looks at how children aged 9-13 react to on-screen images of violence on television and in the cinema, also found that children distinguish clearly between images of fictional violence and those of real life violence – which they find more disturbing. How Children Interpret Screen Violence, is the first study specifically to investigate those elements of an image that make it seem violent to children . It concentrated on children aged 9-13, the age group for which parents expressed the least confidence when it came to regulating their in-home viewing. It took the form of ten extended group discussions and considered children’s attitudes to a variety of representations of on-screen violence, both on television and in the cinema."
