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

About this Event

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

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

About the Seminar

The first half of the seminar will cover ‘sexting’ and the behaviours associated with the term ‘image based sexual abuse’. The key topics of extortion, revenge porn, and up skirting will be explored and placed within the context of education.

Guidance will be provided on the DFE and relevant legislative guidelines, as well as consideration of the impact to children and young people’s mental health and well-being.

The interactive workshop will explore the practical things you can do as an educational professional in relation to responding to the online context of youth produced imagery.

The language we use can have an impact on how children and young people understand and react to situations. School communities have an opportunity to teach empathy and consent, support victims and build awareness on digital privacy.

We will discuss the conversational tools you can use to handle difficult conversations and challenging discussions on the topics covered over the seminar.

Learning Objectives

• Learn about the varying motivations behind both youth produced imagery and image based sexual abuse.

• Gain an awareness of the language used and how to apply this in practice as we move away from victim blaming.

• Develop confidence in responding to incidents within the DFE and legislative guidelines and educational environment.

• Understand and discern the cross over that exists between mental health and youth produced imagery.
