Keeping Adolescent Youth Safe on the Internet Deb Norris

Special Topics: Afterschool , Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: Prevent Child Abuse Vermont
Instructor: Marcie Hambrick

Today’s youth live in a world that is fully intertwined with technology. Tweens and teens make decisions daily, often independently, regarding online relationships. This training provides adults with a deeper understanding of the multiple kinds of digital risks all youth encounter in the digital environment: online grooming, in-person grooming facilitated by digital communications, sexting, and online pornography. We also look at the legal consequences for minors engaging in consensual or non-consensual sexting. Participants will a) strategize ways to keep all youth safe in digital environments. b) learn effective strategies for dealing with youth exhibiting concerning digital behaviors. C) identify supports when youth encounter unwanted behaviors online and resources that can be accessed to remove unwanted images from the internet. This program is designed for teachers and caregivers of adolescents and teens. This program is designed for teachers, afterschool professionals, and caregivers of adolescents and teens. * 2 Continuing Education Credits are available for Vermont Social Workers, Vermont Allied Mental Health Professionals, Vermont Behavior Analysts, Vermont Psychoanalysts, Vermont Psychological Examiners, and Vermont Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counselors.
