About the Course
This course, by Dr Cathal O’Siochru (Liverpool Hope University), explores the impact of advertising on children. In the first module, we think about how much advertising children are exposed to and the impacts it might have. In the second module, we think about persuasion and its role in advertising. In the third module, we think about how advertising can promote stereotypical views and the negative impacts for both the group(s) being stereotyped and the individual(s) exposed to them. Next, we think about how gender is represented in advertising. In the fifth and final module, we think about ways in which we can teach children to be more resilient to the influences of advertising.
