Event description
Stuart Allardyce (Lucy Faithfull Foundation) will discuss technology assisted harmful sexual behaviour and children & young people.

About this Event

Around a third of child sexual abuse is perpetrated by children and young people themselves, and an increasing proportion of this abuse includes sexual abuse and exploitation online. This can include peer on peer abuse, online solicitation, viewing of child sexual exploitation material, non consensual sharing of self-produced sexual images and online sexual harassment. These issues are increasingly coming to the attention by those involved with child protection and welfare and – in particular – those working in school settings.

In this webinar, Stuart Allardyce (CYCJ Associate and Director of Stop it Now! Scotland) will look at key messages from research around identification, assessment and interventions as well as sharing some early findings from ROSA, Stop It Now! Scotland’s Glasgow based project working with children and young people who have displayed harmful sexual behaviours online, both in the community and in education settings. It will also look at what research is currently telling us about prevention of online peer to peer sexual harm, The webinar is suitable for professionals working in social work, law enforcement, education and the third sector.

This event will take place online. Details will be shared with registered attendees 24 hours in advance. Please note that you can't join this event via EventBrite. When discussing this event on social media, please use #CYCJwebinar.
