Dispelling the ‘Sexting’ Myths Seminar

Take an in depth look at ‘sexting’ and image based abuse, the impact it has and why we should move away from victim blaming.

This seminar has been developed to equip professionals with a working knowledge of the potential risks that both ‘sexting’ and image based abuse pose to children and young people within an educational and legislative context.

The seminar will include a workshop to explore how educational professionals can manage and respond to the challenges presented by image based abuse.
