The Clinical Realities of Porn Use by Adolescents

A Conversation with Seth Wescott

Webinar hosted by David S. Prescott,
Editor of Safer Society Press

These days, many children and adolescents receive more information from social media than from their parents and teachers. All too often, they learn more about sex from social media and “tube sites” than they do from educational settings. Traditional “sex ed” curricula too often leave out vital information about sexuality in today’s world. When the main source of such information is social media, and when so much mis-information is spread through those sites, how can clinicians in our field promote healthy sexual development to youth and their parents? This webinar conversation will address some of the common issues related to the reliance on social media to fill the education void, and how to effectively communicate with adolescents and their parents regarding sexual concepts. Although we may end up with more questions than answers, it is a discussion worth having.
