Supporting Young People in an Age of Pornography
How can we support young people to have a healthy understanding of sexuality, relationships and consent in an age of pornography?
The ‘birds and the bees’ conversation is no longer going to cut it for young people growing up in the 21st century. They are bombarded with a wide array of images and messages about sexuality. In this digital era, it can be more difficult to avoid pornography than to see it..
During this one-day workshop for teachers, police, counsellors, policy writers, social service providers and those working with our youth, Maree will help you understand how pornography is shaping young people’s sexual expectations and experiences, and explore how you can equip young people for a sexuality that is safe, respectful and fully consenting.
Please note: Some of the content of this workshop can be confronting. But it has been carefully designed to support you to effectively address the reality of young people’s experience.
