Live Virtual Presentation
Teen Sexting, Nudes, Distribution of Intimate Images, and the Law
Prior to the internet, intimate images were shared between teens via the use of polaroid pictures. Today, the cellphone, and its ability to send pictures and videos instantaneously, has become the norm in how teens will share what they call “nudes.” This behaviour comes with challenges for teens, parents, caregivers, law enforcement, schools, and communities. This presentation will provide on this subject academic peer reviewed research, Canadian case law, and investigative experience. The goal is to understand consent, choices, consequences, and explore options teens have specific actions to reduce legal liability and reduce harm emotionally, psychologically, physically or socially specific to these challenges.
