Sexual coercion and abuse in young people's relationships and its association with pornography and sexting (8 December 2016)

In the latest Safeguarding Children Workshop Professor Nicky Stanley will report the findings from the STIR research (a European study involving over 4,500 young people in schools in five European countries) which examines the relationship between regular use of online pornography and sexually abusive behaviour in intimate relationships and considers how these behaviours link to the sending and receiving of sexual images by young people.  There will be opportunities to identify and discuss the research findings and implications for practitioners in a range of settings including schools. Further details can be found in Sexual coercion and its link to pornography and sexting.
