    Abstract

    Despite a substantial body of research indicating a significant and causal empirical relationship between viewing what the authors label “screen violence” and behaving violently, little attention has been paid to the forensic psychological and psychiatric investigation of these phenomena in specific homicide cases. Through the analysis of seven cases of homicide, mostly committed by adolescents, the authors introduce five concepts—aggression immersion, theme consistency, scene specificity, repetitive viewing, and self-editing—for advancing such investigations.
