With our evolution both culturally and technologically, a new awareness is emerging about why and how we need to speak to our young people about consent. In this talk with Jo Langford, M.A., we will take a deep dive into all things consent, including:
- A comparison of passive and affirmative consent
- A breakdown of the biggest hurdles and potholes young people face with regard to consent, and how we can counterbalance them.
- Definitions and discussions of concepts such as true consent, virginity and rape culture
- Primers on gender issues, adolescent brain development and best practices for negotiating consent with screens
- Tips and tricks for parents, a healthy dose of Q&A and a few fun games
