Online safety and cyberbullying
Kidscape is a national organisation dedicated to providing children, families, carers and professionals with advice, training, and practical tools to prevent bullying and protect young lives. This workshop is designed by them to raise awareness about the benefits and challenges posed by social media.
On completion of the course, delegates will:
- gain insight into the online behaviour of children and young people and the associated risks.
- know what cyberbullying is and how it may be recognised.
- have a clear understanding of what can be done to keep young people safe online.
- be able to recognise the benefits and dangers of social media, including those associated with films, pictures, and videos in addition to the use of webcams.
- know how professionals can be targets of online bullying and trolling or have their reputations damaged.
- be able to create practical strategies in how professionals can protect their online identity and how this links to safeguarding.
The workshop will be facilitated by Ashley Rolfe who is a specialist consultant in the challenging world of child protection and safeguarding. His current role with Kidscape includes designing their training programme. As a freelance consultant, he works with police, teaching staff, voluntary organisations, and young people. This event is suitable for people who are not counsellors but are interested in the subject either personally or professionally.
