Sexting, Social Media and Staying Safe Online - Preston
@Christ Church, 124 Lord St, Southport PR8 1AA
Young people who send and receive sexts are more likely to engage in early sexual behaviours that brings with it a range of emotional, sexual and physical risks. In a culture that ‘rates’ teen boys for sexual activity & ‘shames' girls, technology plays a significant role in amplifying the pressures many young people feel oppressed by. Led by Rachel Gardner, Youthscape, this one-day seminar will equip youth practitioners and parents to respond positively to the curiosity and peer pressure young people experience, and will equip you with ways to empower young people to engage in critical thinking about what they see, hear and do.
