Cyberbullying, Sexting, Nudes, Intimate Images, and The Law Ages teens
About the Course
Online aggression, violence, and threats are not something that should be ignored. Victimization can occur from schoolmates, friends, family, and random anonymous interactions. Smartphones with the ability to send pictures and videos instantaneously have 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.
