    Children in a Digital Age

    In an age where technology is in the hands of youth of all ages, the dangers of abuse can affect any child, from any background. These dangers, ranging from cyberbullying to self-victimization to sexual exploitation and abuse can be difficult to identify. Also, preventing these digital abuses often relies upon the failed use of scare tactics, because children and teens don’t see themselves as vulnerable. This keynote focuses on the variety of digital dangers affecting our youth, the best methods of obtaining disclosures, and effective messaging to prevent digital abuses.
