Parent Presentation: "Curiosity or Calamity? Understanding the Impact of Young People Viewing Sexually Explicit Material "
FIS/FISW parents are invited to a special presentation with award-winning educator, trainer, program consultant and author, Dr. Elizabeth Schroeder, entitled: "Curiosity or Calamity? Understanding the Impact of Young People Viewing Sexually Explicit Material." More and more young people are accessing porn for their sexuality information, and at younger ages than previously thought. This leaves adults increasingly concerned about the impact viewing this material has on young people's physical and emotional health and well-being, especially if they are viewing porn during early adolescence. This presentation will provide an overview of how much young people truly are accessing porn and what research tells us the impacts are (and are not!). We will also have an opportunity to discuss why many adults are so worried - and what we can do to best support young people in their sexual growth and development. Although this session focuses on middle school-aged children, all parents are welcome.
