Supporting Youth Being Targeted by, Aggression, Cyberbullying, Threats, Hacks, and Violence
Anyone online can be a target of aggression, threats, hacks, and violence. Young people being more inquisitive of different online platforms and oftentimes more familiar with the internet than their primary caregivers can create challenges. Sometimes simply deleting a concerning message or blocking someone will not stop motivated targeted attacks. Emotional vulnerability is a legitimate risk to those who are still developing into adulthood. Young people may attempt to deal with these challenges themselves and not ask for help. When small online aggression becomes threats, safety concerns are real, even if the intention was false.
This program aims to help parents and caregivers support youth who may find themselves subject to various forms of aggression online. We will outline concerning signs to looks for. The diverse forms of aggression takes will be examined ranging from simple messages, threats of violence to more elaborate hacks. We will overview the support process during response and recovery periods in how you can most effetely help. Working with police, schools, and how to overcome barriers will be addressed.

The White Hatter Experience
What Makes Our Programs Special
We are recognized industry leaders and experts in the fields of internet and social media safety and digital literacy training. Students, teachers, principals, parents, counsellors, business professionals, and law enforcement throughout North America have all agreed that our presentation was the “best" and most "in-depth" they have experienced on the topic. Our presentations stand out as a “must-have" program for elementary and high school students, thus why our programs have been heard by more Students and have won more awards, than any other programs in Canada over the past three years.
Our program is not just about internet safety, it’s also about digital citizenship and literacy, online ethics, online critical thinking, and the challenges surrounding privacy, cyberbullying, and what we can do now to protect their digital footprint. The goal of our programs is not to instill fear or negate opportunities, rather to enlighten, empower, and enable participants to make informed online choices.
Law Enforcement Experience
While others in our industry seek out police endorsements or advertise that they have or do work with law enforcement, we are comprised of current or past law enforcement professionals, and bring this experience and pedigree to all of our programs.
We Stay Current
We stay current on everything we do, and we have documented evidence that our presentation positively changes internet behaviour. We are also very proud of the fact that our programs have intervened in the lives of many, especially in our grade school programs where students who were contemplating suicide or self-harm as an option because they were in crisis or being targeted by cyberbullying or sexting went wrong issues. These students heard our empathetic message, reached out to us for help, and in each and every case (often working with their school) we were able to get them the help that they needed.
Bring Our Own Equipment
For our In-person programs, we bring all our own equipment (laptop, projector, microphone, and auditorium sound system); all you need to provide is a table, screen, electrical cord, and power source.
