September 9, 2020 @ 1:00 pm Pacific Developmentally, one of the ways adolescents explore who they are is through romantic relationships. How adolescents approach these relationships is influenced by the relationships modeled around them.

WEBINAR: Teen Sexting, Cyberbullying, and Adolescent Relationships

Dr. Temple will discuss sexting (a combination of the words sex and texting), the practice of electronically sending sexually explicit images or messages from one person to another. Sexting has received an abundance of attention in the popular press. Much of this attention has been limited to (1) legal cases in which teens who create, send, receive, store, and/or disseminate nude pictures of themselves or another teen face criminal charges including child pornography, and (2) cases in which teens are harassed and bullied as a result of the nude picture being distributed beyond the intended audience. Although media reports often cite various examples of sexting leading to bullying, cyber-bullying, and even suicide, we understand very little about the public health importance of sexting. Using data from his ongoing longitudinal study of adolescent health, as well as a recent meta-analysis, Dr. Temple will examine the prevalence of sexting behaviors as well…

WEBINAR: Essential Lessons Learned in Dating: Teaching the Stages of Relationships

Teens often move too quickly in romance. Breaking romantic development down into 4 specific stages can help teens see the path that leads to healthy partnership choices and understand concerns regarding the choice to “Hook-Up”. Each step in this progression has it’s own important tasks. Moving too quickly through stages or skipping stages puts the individual at risk and at a disadvantage. Making these stages, and the accompanying tasks, clear can help young adults slow down, stay curious, identify obstacles, and avoid potential emotional, mental, and physical injury Guest Presenter: Elsbeth Martindale, PsyD, Creator of the card set and activity book: “Things to Know Before You Say Go.”
