This Short Cut TV episode deals with the relation between media and aggression. Are these two things connected? Is aggression, something we learn? Claire Parsons reviews Canadian-American Psychologist Albert Bandura's Social Learning Theory as a potential avenue of looking at aggressive behaviour. So with this in mind, can it be argued: does aggressive media produce aggressive behaviour? Can aggressive movies, shows and video games make young kids and adults more aggressive? In this segment, Claire Parsons and Dr. Steve Taylor aim to find out.
