Superheroes and Risk-taking Behavior in Young Children

This is a past event.

There are many risk factors for child injuries, and exposure to superhero media may be one of them. Join us for ​I Believe there is a Hero in All of Us: Superheroes and Risk-taking Behavior in Young Children​ as we explore how the superhero culture can affect our children.

Children sometimes identify closely with superhero characters. They may even idolize them. Dr. David Schwebel and Casie Morgan will take a look at how short-term, acute exposure and long-term exposure to superheroes in television, movies, and just general life over a lifetime can impact a child's risk-taking behavior.

Injuries kill more children than anything else, which has created a major health challenge. Through this webinar, discover prevention strategies and future research directions on this topic, and how to keep your kids safe.
