Seminar: Protecting Children in a Digital Age



Monday 14th of October 2019


This day-long seminar is designed to educate a broad range of disciplines responsible for conducting investigations and safeguarding youth. It is open to members of law enforcement, child protection teams, school officials, social workers, counselors, educators, community leaders, and staff members for programs that serve youth.

Past participants had this to say...

  • The instructor was knowledgeable and engaging. He brought a great balance of encouraging thought and discussion about the topic, while also providing practical information.
  • The law regarding sexting and sextortion that recently passed will be good to reference in my line of work as it is relevant to the age range of children I work with every day.

What's In It For You

  • Upon completion of this training, you will be able to:
  • Understand the different types of technology used by children and teens, including devices and apps
  • Recognize the differences between the digital age and the world that adults experienced while growing up
  • Focus on a proactive approach to digital safety that includes communication, setting guidelines, and digital citizenship training
  • Understand the most common online issues that children and teens are likely to face such as cyberbullying, “sexting,” and online predators
  • Address the legal aspects of all of these topics and learn how to address each of these issues with best practices
  • Understand our role in helping victims navigate trauma after the incident has occurred, and learn what resources are available for you to aid in this process
