What is Depersonalization

Narrative Theory and Therapy in the Post-Truth Era
The most important effect of violence in television broadcasts that creates an anesthetic effect on individuals is “depersonalization”. The intense display of violence in the media and the constant exposure to media violence cause depersonalization of individuals' natural emotional and physical reactions. In fact, scenes of violence warn individuals less over time, and in summary, the violence watched in the media reduces the physical reactions to violence in the real world.

Violence shown in the media, and especially in television programs, manifests itself as an alarming narrative element. Establishing a narrative through violence is an important marketing tool for the television industry with its language that appeals to the general public. In television broadcasts, and especially in television dramas, violence is treated as a profitable theme for the broadcaster. Since violent programs are a subject that attracts viewers, television organizations also increase the dose of violence in their broadcasts. Along with the increase in violence in society, the role of the media's narrative of violence in directing the audience is starting to be discussed. At this point, the presentation of violence within the framework of the post-truth approach of the violence narrative presented in television series gains importance. In this context, the chapter examines how the presentation of violence through television series is blurred and affects the public opinion by highlighting emotions and various interests within the framework of the post-truth approach.
