STUDENT PRESENTATIONS Very few presenters can hold a teen audience captive for an hour on any subject, much less on the topic of pornography. Yet time and time again, Liz receives incredibly positive feedback from young men and women who gain insight into how the porn industry has shaped the landscape they live in, what porn does to the brain, why it leads to inequality, and how they can develop confidence to push back against porn culture and become a #newbreedofhero. No shame, no judgement. Just practical advice and loads of motivation to fight back and reclaim a life free from toxic sexuality.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT If you’re a teacher, counsellor or youth worker, perhaps you find yourself questioning: What does the research say about the impact of pornography on children and young people? How can we minimise the ripple effect of pornography and counteract its messages? How can effective relationships and sexuality education help? What messages do young people need around consent, inclusivity, pornography, sexual pressures, sending nudes, respect and consent? How do we get started and what support do my colleagues need? How can we meet children and young people’s needs through curriculum? What is a whole-school approach and where do we begin? What are resources and strategies to use with children? How do I handle difficult questions? What conversations will support parents? If you’ve asked these questions, contact Liz today.
PARENT WORKSHOPS – Parents and families want and need information about supporting their child to navigate the sexualised and ponified landscape. They also want reassurance about child sexual development, what is typical for age and stage, and how to take the lead with age-appropriate conversations. Unfortunately, a common question asked is ‘What do we do when my 10 year old sees pornography?’ Liz provides practical advice and directs parents to age-relevant resources. Liz works with schools and community groups to find solutions that work for them – culturally aware, attuned to beliefs, and sensitive to values and concerns. Holding a parent workshop is a great way to get this conversation going in your community. Allow a minimum of 90 minutes so parents have an opportunity to connect with one another, as well as ensure their questions are answered.
Liz specialises in helping schools, professionals and community groups understand and respond to the impact of pornography through Critical Porn Analysis and holistic relationships and sexuality education. If you require services for special needs children and young people, connect with your nearest sexual health clinic to find support.
