Lt. Col. Dave Grossman - Key Note Speaker

Initially, we will examine the magnitude of violent crimes in the US and around the world, the factors that all school killers had in common, and the role of media violence as a new factor contributing to the phenomenon.

Then we will address powerful new data demonstrating the actual impact of media violence upon the brain

(Indiana University Brain Scan Study) and a powerful new study demonstrating a significant reduction in violence and bullying through media reduction (the Stanford SMART Curriculum). Finally we will address the role of violent visual imagery (in TV, movies and video games) in causing the current "virus of violence" in families, and in developed nations around the world.
