According to statistics, the average adult in the UK has at least three social media accounts, an indicator of how the way we communicate is changing forever. Leading the digital revolution are young people, both as consumers and content providers. But as the choice of social media platforms increases, along with the potential for sharing every part of our lives, so do concerns about misuse and safety. This workshop aims to equip those working with young people with the skills and basic knowledge to encourage young people to enjoy social media safely and responsibly.
It explores the impact of celebrity culture and the rise of ‘brand me’ on health and wellbeing, as well as the attitudes and values behind selfies and sexting. It also looks at the risks of making, sharing and receiving intimate images, revenge porn and outlines the potential legal and social consequences of under 18’s sharing inappropriate content, even with consent.
This training is a must for any professional working with children or young people and their families, parents or carers. It’s suitable for various settings and either group or 1:1 dynamics.
