SAFETY FOR CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Proactive and Protective Responses to Address Pornography Harms

Professional Development flexible to 60-90 minute introductory, or half- or full-day training.

Educators, clinicians, health professionals and parents are witnessing a rise in concerning sexual behaviours amongst children and young people.

Normalised hypersexualised media, sexting and hardcore porn has resulted in our children being more vulnerable to exploitation, sexual abuse and mental health issues than ever before. Around the globe, governments, educators and health professionals are recognising online pornography as a serious child safety and public health crisis. This relevant, research-based training is for educators and anyone who works with children and youth. To understand this complex issue, we will discuss how concerning sexual attitudes and behaviours present in children’s lives, consequences, and how professionals may further develop their ability to respond proactively and protectively.

This workshop informs and equips educators and anyone who works with children and young people to:

  1. Understand the negative impacts of pornography on child & youth development, safety, attitudes, behaviours and mental health.
  2. Respond proactively and protectively to physical and online environments.
  3. Gain knowledge and practical tools on how to identify children and young people at risk and respond.
  4. Gain strategies to engage and equip children, youth and parents.
  5. Gain access to preventative and protective resources that minimise the opportunity for children and young people to be harmed.

This training strengthens your organisation’s capability to effectively manage the risks and harms of online and physical environments—essential for remaining on the cutting edge of education which supports child safety in the digital age.

To Whom it May Concern:
Liz Walker spoke at the recent Australasian Institute of Sexual Health Medicine 2015 conference in Sydney where she presented a talk on the effects of the porn culture on young people called ‘Implications of porn use for Teen Mental Wellbeing’.

Liz is an exceptionally passionate and articulate speaker who has thoroughly researched her topic and presents in an accessible and interesting manner. Her message is strong and uncompromising, backed by clinical experience and research. An expert in this controversial area I expect to see Liz on the world stage in the near future warning of the effects of the porn culture on future generations.
