In your post, consider how a potential media stronghold over children and adolescents could lead to depressive symptoms.
For example, think about the media and its obsession with thinness, and particularly how this impacts female adolescents and the young-adult population. What do you think the relation is between over-viewing of idealized and unrealistic media portrayals and depressive symptoms?
Explain how rapidly depressive symptoms can lead to troublesome behaviors in direct correlation to media influence. Also reference co-morbid disorders that could potentially develop, such as eating disorders. Please research at least one real-world example to support your claims.
In response to your peers, suggest a possible solution to the relation of media and depression that they present. Feel free to bring in both outside research and support from the module’s resources to justify your solution.
