Live Virtual Presentation
Cyberbullying, Sexting, Nudes, Intimate Images, and the Law Ages 15+ (Grade 8-12)
This session focusses exclusively on two subjects, sexting and bullying. Both subjects independent but oftentimes coincide. Online aggression, violence, and threats is not something that should be ignored given its prevalence online. Victimization can occur form schoolmates, friends, family, and random anonymous interactions. Smartphones with the ability to send pictures and videos instantaneously, has become the tool in how teens will share what they call “nudes.” The social and legal circumstances of these behaviours can often be misunderstood, we aim to clarify the facts and risks.
This program is based on academic peer reviewed research, case law, and real-world investigative experience helping teens. The objective of this session is to help youth understand consent, choices, consequences and how they can take specific actions to reduce legal liability and reduce harm emotionally, psychologically, physically and socially specific to these challenges. We will provide tools and resources for times of crisis to help maintain healthy and safe online experiences.
