Liz Walker is dedicated to culture-shifting initiatives that respond to pornography harms on children & young people
If you’re a teacher, counsellor or youth worker – or anyone working kids in the community – perhaps you find yourself questioning: What does the research say about the impact of pornography on children and young people?How can we meet children and young people’s needs when navigating porn culture? How can we minimise the effects of pornography and counteract its messages? How do we get started and what support do my colleagues need? How can holistic relationships and sexuality education help? What messages do young people need around consent, inclusivity, pornography, sexual pressures, sending nudes, respect and consent? What is a whole-school approach to pornography 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.
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 develop a healthy understanding of relationships. No shame, no judgement. Just practical advice and loads of motivation to fight back and reclaim a life free from toxic sexuality. Make an inquiry through Youth Wellbeing Project today, and if Liz is unavailable, a qualified presenter will be recommended to meet your requirements.
PARENT OR COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS
Parents, families and community want and need information about supporting their child and loved ones to navigate the sexualised and pornified landscape. They often need reassurance about child sexual development, what is typical for age and stage, and how to take the lead with age-appropriate conversations. They also want strategies to address take action on this issue in their schools, churches, community and at government level. Liz directs parents to age-relevant resources and provides practical advice and strategies for concerned citizens. 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 90-120 minutes so that attendees have an opportunity to have their questions answered. Please contact Liz today and make a booking inquiry.
Prices vary and are dependant on on group size, length of session and desired outcomes. Based in Brisbane, Liz regularly travels nationally and internationally – travel and accommodation costs apply. If you have any questions or would like to make a booking, please contact Liz today.

To Whom it May Concern:
Liz Walker spoke at the Australasian Institute of Sexual Health Medicine 2015 conference in Sydney where she presented a talk on the effects of the porn culture on young people called ‘Implications of porn use for Teen Mental Wellbeing’.
Liz is an exceptionally passionate and articulate speaker who has thoroughly researched her topic and presents in an accessible and interesting manner. Her message is strong and uncompromising, backed by clinical experience and research. An an expert in this controversial area I expect to see Liz on the world stage in the near future warning of the effects of the porn culture on future generations.

This was the most well presented and interactive workshop I have been to in years. It was thorough, yet concise. If you are working with teens in a supportive role then this workshop is a MUST SEE.Psychologist

Please accept our thanks for your willingness to speak about 'Youth Sexuality and the impact of pornography on young people' at our counsellors meeting. The information you presented and explained was received with great enthusiasm and interest to the point that we would like to schedule it in again in 2016 if you would kindly agree. Your expertise in this area has been of great benefit to all those who attended the evening.Christian Heritage College
Liz Walker is obviously passionate and informed about her topic area. I particularly appreciated her ability to connect research to the current issues of pornography and sexualisation of our children and teens. I feel more connected and empowered with my new knowledge.Stephen HalsallPowerhouse Programs
