Date: Thursday14th July 2022
Time: 9.10 am – 12.30 pm
Venue: Online via Zoom
Trainer: Catherine Knibbs
This training / workshop is suitable for anyone working with children or whose children have discussed, viewed or sent this kind of material, practitioners who have been called to deal with this issue in schools, homes or other settings. In fact anyone who knows children!
With the prevalence of Pornography on the internet alone (It is suggested that approximately one third of the online space is dedicated to this material) it is highly likely, if not almost guaranteed that children and young people can be exposed to this in many of their social media accounts, video platforms and of course the gaming spaces.
They will undoubtedly hear sexualised language and curiously google this information, only to land on sites, searches and spaces where this material is for over 18's, inappropriate, extreme and often violent.
During this packed and informative training, facilitated by an expert in the field who has over a decade of experience working with these issues with children as young as 5, delegates will:
- Learn about what pornography children and young people see, what the harm, influence and issues are with viewing this material
- Hear anonymous case studies and examples to provoke discussion
- Discuss candidly, openly and frankly about the issues children and young people face with this material and the viewing of this whether this be once off, repeatedly or problematic viewings.
Learn about the vulnerabilities of websites and what this may mean for children’s cyber safety and security going forward.
All delegates receive a comprehensive handout and certificate of participation
