Naked Truths. This is NOT just another cyber safety workshop!

Workshops for Secondary School Students

The NAKED TRUTH about creating and maintaining respectful relationships online.  Workshops cover hot topics such as nudes, porn, trolling and doxxing.

This program covers:

  • Respectful relationships in social media
  • Healthy boundaries in exploring and expressing sexuality online
  • Challenging misinformation about sex and relationships
  • Responsible use of technology and social media
  • The role of age and gender in online power imbalances
  • The law: teens' rights and responsibilities

Naked Truths workshops are tailored to the developmental need of each year level and reflect current trends in social media use. While the same topics are covered in each workshop, content and activities for year seven students will differ substantially than those presented to senior students.

Deanne’s research of cyber responsibility has grown from responding to questions about nudes, porn, grooming and sexuality resources in sexuality education classes. This dovetailed with research and advocacy she was already doing on promoting online relationship, gender and sexuality equity.

Workshops for Primary School Children

The NAKED TRUTH about creating and maintaining respectful relationships online.  Workshops cover hot topics such as nudes, porn, trolling and grooming.

Ideal for students from Years 4 - 6, workshops are run by leading Australian sexuality educator and researcher, Deanne Carson. Deanne has presented locally and internationally on sexual media literacy and cyber safety.

This program covers:

  • Respectful relationships in social media
  • Healthy boundaries in exploring and expressing sexuality online
  • Challenging misinformation about sex and relationships
  • Responsible use of technology and social media
  • The role of age and gender in online power imbalances
  • The law: children's rights and responsibilities

Naked Truths workshops are tailored to the developmental need of each year level and reflect current trends in internet use. While the same topics are covered in each workshop, content and activities for year four students differ substantially from that delivered to year five or six students. For this reason, the workshop is delivered separately to each year level.

Deanne’s research of cyber responsibility has grown from responding to increasing number of questions about nudes, porn and grooming and sexuality resources in Year 5 - 6 puberty sexuality education classes. This dovetailed with research and advocacy she was already doing on promoting online relationship, gender and sexuality equity.

NAKED TRUTHS FOR PARENTS

Naked Truths for Parents is a two-hour workshop for parents of children from Prep to Year 6.

Parents and carers will learn about the unique challenges facing this generation of children as they navigate sexual curiosity in a digital age.

Getting Real! program
Did You Know that: - Most children are exposed to porn before they finish primary school. - Digital media is an extension of young people’s 	daily lives. An estimated 95% of Australian kids have regular access to the Internet. Children use the Internet to learn, play and socialize. - Children’s first exposure to pornography is usually accidental. Older children tend to see adult content when they turn to the Internet to explore and express their sexuality. - Early exposure to porn can influence a person’s lifelong attitude towards sex. - Increasingly, primary aged students are being asked for nudes by strangers or peers.
