From Internet censorship to levels of television exposure, the effects of mass media on children is one of the most widely debated issues in our society. Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of scholars from around the world, the Handbook of Children and the Media is a comprehensive analysis of the field for students and scholars. This book summarizes the current scope of research on children and the media, suggests directions for future research, and attempts to provide students with a deliberate examination of how children use, enjoy, learn from, and are advantaged or disadvantaged by regular exposure to television and other electronic media. --From publisher's description

The inner world of daydreaming by Jerome L Singer( Book )

16 editions published between 1966 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though artists like Coleridge or James Joyce have traditionally been allowed and even expected to have a vivid fantasy life, daydreaming in the average person has generally been held in disrepute by clinical psychologists as an illicit way of indulging in unattainable desires, basically regressive, childish behavior when not actually a symptom of neurotic disturbance. Singer, a Yale psychologist who has been working for years combining introspective, clinical and experimental studies of ""man the image-maker, "" proposes some quite different and much more positive functions for our wide-awake reveries. He suggests that the Freudian ""cathartic"" view of daydreaming is far too restricted to encompass an inborn human talent which ""like our capacity for language or our capacity to develop various motor skills"" is part of our fundamental behavioral repertoire. Singer contends that daydreams range beyond conflict resolution of sexual and/or aggressive drives. Besides providing spontaneous enjoyment and relief from monotony or frustration, fantasies also serve as ""rehearsals for future action, "" a unique and important way by which ""we can explore a great range of future possibilities without necessarily committing ourselves through action to irrevocable consequences."--The Kirkus Reviews"--Back cover

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book takes a rather scholarly and extensive look at a part of children's lives that would appear to be instinctive: make-believe. To achieve their stated intent to "suggest ways in which parents and teachers can foster play skills," the authors offer many adult-directed activities that will not only encourage imaginative play but also foster such areas as creativity and cognitive, motor, sensory, and social skills. A table in the front of the book links specific chapters with the development of these skills. Some suggested activities enhance the senses: smelling, tasting, hearing."
