Training: Sex Ed by Porn? Maree Crabbe

November 17, 2017 at 11:29 AM

Kia ora and welcome!

Rape Crisis Dunedin is delighted to welcome Maree Crabbe back to Ōtepoti for a full training day on Sex Ed by Porn? Pornography and its impact on youth at Wains Hotel. (Click here for more information).

As citizens, we are becoming ever more aware of the abilities and uses of technology and the internet.  While not all of these are bad, porn makes up approximately a third of internet traffic, with one porn site rated as 23rd most popular, higher than both Ebay and Netflix’s ratings.  These statistics take on a whole new meaning when the average age of viewers is considered, as do these figures that Maree notes on her website:

One mother in a NZ Herald interview, said:

“A while ago my computer crashed and I borrowed my 15-year-old son’s laptop. I found that he’d been looking at pornography, some of it violent and just disgusting…I haven’t said anything to him, but I’m worried that this rot is skewing his attitudes towards women. “

 

We are also seeing more articles on the news discussing the harm porn causes:

Dear Mary-Anne, I know my teen is looking at violent porn

Why this is a useful training day:

Join expert Maree Crabbe as she discusses the impact of pornography in terms of the violence, the representation of relationships, and youth’s use of porn as an education tool for sex.  This one day conference is aimed at educating those who work with youth in a social service, or through primary prevention, counselling, youth justice, family violence, police, academic research, and those with a mental health perspective to ensure they are able to help adolescents work through, and critically analyse the messages porn presents.  Further, the training assists participants to develop their understanding of how easily accessible pornography is influencing young people’s sexual expectations and behaviour. It builds participants’ confidence and skills to address these issues with young people, and provides an introduction to resources available to support this work.

Some key questions and topics that Maree will cover includes:

  • How porn impacts young people
  • Why we need to help youth tackle the versions of relationships and sex porn presents
  • How we can support youth who have been exposed to porn or who watch it
  • Activities that challenge whether porn represents reality

We will aim for participants to leave with:

  • A clear understanding of pornography’s effects
  • A clear understanding of why youth need help and support around porn
  • A clear understanding of how to hold these conversations with clients, students, patients
