An eSafety expert from the Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner will be delivering a FREE 2 hour presentation suitable for youth and social workers, counsellors and psychologists working in youth focused organisations.

In this rapidly evolving digital landscape, having a comprehensive understanding of a young person’s use of technology, and its impact on both online and offline behaviour, is essential in being able to provide effective and responsive care.

The session covers:

  • Key cybersafety issues including:
  • cyberbullying
  • unwanted contact
  • digital reputation
  • sexting
  • accessing sexually explicit and inappropriate material – and its influence on relationships and sexual identity
  • excessive gaming/social media
  • The cultural context of social media and technology use by young people
  • The Office’s power to remove serious cyberbullying material
  • Practical strategies to safeguard and minimise risk with online interactions for those working with young people and advice to support safe and enjoyable online experiences.
