This workshop will explore the way we the use internet and more recently portable electronic devices, has transformed the way pornography is accessed and how pornography accesses children and young people. In the absence of adequate education in the home, school and wider community, pornography is the primary and in many cases the only education children and young people receive about relationships and sexuality. As the trusted adults in our children’s lives we can support them to maximise the benefits and minimise and manage the risks.
The Bright Futures project is designed to be accessible to all child safety and educational professionals across the state, therefore, there is no cost associated with your attendance. Morning tea and lunch will be provided on the day courtesy of Bright Futures.
This event does not have a hybrid option, attendance is in-person only.
