Sexting, Texting and Cyberbullying in the New Age of Technology
Technological advancements in cell phones have led to the development of new methods of creating and sharing child pornography as well as other sexually predatory behaviors. As sexting and cyberbullying have grown in popularity, children and adults are often unaware of the possible consequences. Addressing these matters in a proactive restorative manner maximizes the impact of the intervention while minimizing the long term collateral consequences. This presentation educates professionals on the seriousness and trends with this issue. Statistics, videos, first-hand stories and other valuable insights will be discussed to focus on the consequences and different strategies the criminal justice system can deal with the issue. Cyberbullying will also be addressed, specifically how traditional bullying has morphed to the new and more dangerous bullying with the use of technology.
