Parent and community session: It’s time we talked about porn
This free parent session explores issues that are often not covered in sex education in schools, including how young people are influenced by explicit sexual imagery and the implications for their capacity to negotiate consent, mutual respect and gender equality.
This session will be led by Maree Crabbe, Director of the violence prevention project Reality & Risk: Pornography, young people and sexuality. In this session, Maree will explore:
- What parents need to understand about pornography and its influence on young people’s sexual understandings and expectations.
- How parents support their children’s healthy social and sexual development in an age of pornography.
Professional Learning: Sex Ed by Porn? Pornography, young people and sexuality
Teachers and health professionals are invited to attend this subsidised session with Maree Crabbe, Director of the violence prevention project reality & risk: Pornography, young people and sexuality.
Reality & Risk provides training for teachers, youth workers, counsellors, police and people working in fields such as health promotion, youth justice, sexual assault and family violence. The training assists participants to develop their understanding of how easily accessible pornography is influencing young people’s sexual expectations and behaviour. It builds participants’ confidence and skills to address these issues with young people, and provides an introduction to resources available to support this work. Register now!
