Cyber-Bullying: The Challenge Facing the Next Generation – How can we preserve the emotional well being and mental health of our future? Tuesday 29th April 2014
What this workshop provides?
It is now estimated that over a billion people use Facebook across the globe with other social media sites such as Twitter and You Tube (and many more) now playing a major part in most of our everyday lives. Although some will argue that social media is a positive phenomenon, this workshop will highlight the challenges that face our young people who now have instant access to an increasing number of social sites.
Our training aims to raise awareness and understanding of the issues facing the next generation. It will explore cyber-bullying from the perspective of a young person and the potentially dangerous consequences that social media can have on those who access it. The growing use of apps and smart phones now means most young people have instant access to the internet and social sites 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Do we really know what our children are accessing online and the potential risks involved?
· We will look at a number of popular social media sites and how they work and the potential risks involved
· Explore dangers such as online bullying and the links to suicide and self harm
· Discussion on the importance placed by young people on online ‘life’
· Highlight the dangers of anonymity
· There will also be some opportunity to explore other issues around cyber-bullying and ask questions
