Sexting and Internet Misuses
Sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photographs, primarily between mobile phones. With the advances of technology, young people who like each other today can pass much more than, simply, a hand written note! As such, while youth who behave provocatively and impulsively is not new, technology now provides a means to manifest this behavior in more dangerous ways that can be exceedingly harmful to others-including life threatening. This session will focus on current issues related to sexting. Additionally, the session will impart information about other ways that the internet, including social media tools, is misused and harmful to youth.
Self-harm in Adolescents and Young Adulthood: Intervention on the Front Lines
This session will review current data on the changing face of self-harm in adolescents and young adults in our communities. How often does self-harm occur in our teen and young adult population? What is included or not included in the definition of self-harm? Are there types of self-harm about which we should be more or less concerned? Information will be offered on interventions ranging from the most effective immediate response by parents, school guidance counselors, teachers, emergency workers, and others, to formal mental health treatments that are available, when needed.
