Preventing Online Harm
February 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
As youth online usage increases, what can we do to curb social media abuse and misuse? Find out from experts at this series about online safety and digital wellness for youth. At the first session, hear from educator and advocate Carol Todd, whose daughter Amanda took her own life after enduring sextortion and harassment, and Dr. Sameer Hinduja, a renowned expert on teen social media use. This webinar will cover cyberbullying, sexting, sextortion, and other online threats. Attendees will learn practical strategies for identification, prevention, and response — and how to promote positive interactions and healthier participation online. Increase your awareness of all of the major risks that youth face — and boost your ability and confidence to support your children and grandchildren. Also, stay tuned for the next event in this series in March.
