The Self/Peer Exploitation Guide helps educators and parents respond to incidents of self/peer exploitation, better known as sexting.
Who is it for?
Educators and Parents/Guardians
What does it do?
The Self/Peer Exploitation: Resource Guide for Schools and Resource Guide for Families offer practical direction for supporting youth when a sexual image or video has been created and shared with peers, how to reduce the negative impact on the teen, and guidance that may limit the circulation of the sexual image or video.
How does it support child safety?
While these guidelines are a useful intervention tool during a self/peer exploitation incident, they can also be utilized to get the conversation started with youth about risks associated with sexting, as well as where they can turn to if they, or a friend, find themselves in need of help.
