This learning event is right for you if you are concerned about young people and pornography and are looking for strategies to engage in effective conversations.

Description                                  

Research shows that pornography is associated with unsafe sexual health practices and may strengthen attitudes supportive of sexual violence and violence against women (aifs.gov.au). In this digital age, young people have easy access to explicit material and open communication is one of the best approaches to supporting them to make good and healthy decisions.

Elephant Ed is a leader in the delivery of sexuality education to students, parents and school staff. Join this one hour webinar to increase your awareness of how pornography is impacting students and how to engage them in effective conversations to help them to think critically about the effects.
