ONLINE TRAINING –

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT PORN:
Talking to young people about the potential impact of pornography on relationships, sex, consent and body image

From primetime TV to online gaming young people are bombarded by sexualised images on a daily basis from a young age. Additionally, it’s been reported that online porn consumption has rocketed during lockdown, making high quality relationship and sex education (RSE) even more important.

Traditionally a difficult topic to talk about, this online workshop aims to equip teachers, youth workers and parents with tips, activities and practical information to help young people understand the difference between pornography and real-life relationships and develop the skills to make healthy choices.

With a perfect blend of theory and practical skills that you can use with young people.

This training consists of real-time sessions & techniquesdiscussion groups and opportunities to practice and network with each other.

A must for any teacher or youth engagement worker
