George Curran's curator insight, August 11, 4:17 PM

Harm reduction values each person’s dignity and respects their right to make choices. This shifts the focus from attempting to restrict or prohibit risky behaviors to reducing the negative consequences associated with them."

Violent video games: More playing time equals more aggression | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

A new study provides the first experimental evidence that the negative effects of playing violent video games can accumulate over time. Researchers found that people who played a violent video game for three consecutive days showed increases in aggressive behavior and hostile expectations each day they played.
