Impact of Pornography Training

There is a wide range of free, easy access porn sites out there and also a number of sites with highly sexualised messages, there are reports of a high number of young people becoming regular consumers of porn and an alarming amount of young children discovering and accessing it as well. This course aims to support teachers, youth workers and other professionals to understand the content of sexualised imagery online, including porn.

This includes the impact of viewing harmful content and how damaging it can be to children and young people including on themselves, their relationships, attitudes towards sex and their behaviours. The course will also look at self created images by young people and how to address these while also understanding the links to pressure, exploitation and emotional wellbeing.

 

Traditionally a difficult topic to talk about, this training offers practical tips, activities and information to enable young people to understand the difference between pornography and real-life relationships and develop the skills to make healthy choices.
