Lets Talk About Sex, Pressure &  Social Media TRaining.png

Have you thought about how the availability of pornography via modern technology and the media impacts on relationships?

Social media and social network sites (SNS) are an evolving area for sexual health communication with young people. They present opportunities and challenges for sexual health professionals and young people alike, such as learning through interactivity and addressing concerns about privacy

Social networks are how many young people communicate with one another, however we are increasingly hearing stories of young people sharing pictures and information with people they have never met and do not know. Understanding the pressures and why young people do this will help you work with young people to resist the pressure they face.
This course enables participants to gain knowledge and skills about the influences and pressures young people face as they develop and explore their emerging sexuality. 

Come and join us in this one day training to explore what impact technology can have on sexual health and behaviour.
