Smartphones, with the ability to send media instantaneously, have become the primary method in how teens will share what they call “nudes.” This behaviour comes with challenges for teens, parents, caregivers, law enforcement, schools, and communities. This program will summarize what over 250 academic peer-reviewed research projects have concluded on this behaviour. In addition, Canadian case law, and online investigative experience with teens and families will be discussed. The session will highlight influences, consent, choices, consequences that youth interact with. We will explore options teens have to reduce legal liability and reduce harm emotionally, psychologically, physically or socially specific to frequent challenges. Topic themes will include but not limited to exploitation, extortion, trust, law, privacy, incident response, and harm reduction. Information presented is sourced from research experience, literature review analysis, online investigation experience, and digital safety practitioner knowledge. This program is ideal for anyone that work with teens.
