Cheryl co-founded the Center for Mental Health and Media at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. With her husband, Dr. Larry Kutner, she turned that research into a book called “Grand Theft Childhood: The Surprising Truth About Violent Video Games, and What Parents Can Do”(Simon & Schuster, 2008 and 2011).
Cheryl Olson and Kevin Saunders discuss regulation of video game violence, the Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association 2011 ruling, and the impact of video games on children.
