Last Friday, the National Youth Health Programme of the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) with the support from An Garda Siochana launched their new tool ‘Lets Talk About Sexting’.
It is designed to support Youth Workers to start a conversation about sexting with young people you work with and help you address questions they may have.
The tool provides guidance on:
What is meant by the term ‘sexting’
Sexting and the Irish Law
Guidance for young people on what to do if they are involved in a sexting incident which they are not comfortable in
Guidance for Youth Workers if a young person notifies them on a sexting incident
Additional supports and services for both the Youth Worker and Young People
