Pornography and harmful sexual behaviour: Why is porn an issue and how can we address it?

17th September 2024
09.00am – 13.00pm

On-line Webinar via Teams

Pornography has become a violence prevention issue we can’t afford to ignore. Arguably the most prominent form of sexuality education, pornography is shaping young people’s sexual understandings and experiences, with serious implications for their capacity to navigate relationships and sexuality that are safe, respectful and consenting. There is growing concern internationally that pornography’s influence is contributing to cultural conditions that cultivate harmful sexual behaviours.

This webinar will support participants to analyse pornography’s prevalence, nature and influence, and explore practical examples of how its influence may be addressed.

Maree Crabbe is Director of the Australian violence prevention project, It’s time we talked. She is an educator, author, filmmaker and researcher who is passionate about supporting young people, parents, schools, community organisations and governments to understand and address pornography’s influence.
