Description
The PTC seeks to discourage depictions of extreme and gratuitous violence, graphic sexual themes and dialogue, and profane language in the entertainment media because of their proven negative influence on children. As recent research has demonstrated the combined effects of the negative influences reaching children from multiple sources, the PTC has expanded its focus to include monitoring of movies and video games. Because of its pervasive influence, the PTC’s principal focus continues to be on prime time television.

The PTC pursues its mission through a combination of efforts including research, public education and support for community-based advocacy, as well as direct engagement with regulators and with decision makers in the entertainment, advertising and broadcast industries. Through this coordinated set of strategies, the PTC has become the most influential and effective leader in addressing issues of crucial concern to the American people.
