(ONLINE) Teen Sexting Intervention Program

Sexting refers to an act of sending or receiving sexually explicit images, messages or videos on a cell phone or through the Internet. 

A detailed agenda will be shared in advance of the session. Participants will receive an electronic copy of all materials. Sessions will follow best practices for virtual meetings with frequent breaks, and discussions and activities to keep participants engaged

This sexting intervention program was designed and developed by Dynamic Family Solutions to directly address the issues of sexting amongst youth. This evidence-based intervention is offered within Winnebago County as a second chance educational diversion program, to divert youth offenders from having a criminal record. As a prevention program in schools, the program offers the opportunity for preventative lessons being taught to all youth so they better understand what is at stake if they sext. The program helps students recognize negative influences that social media has on youth and acknowledge healthier ways to communicate and set boundaries. 

Participants will:

  • Better understand the process of implementing the program within their county, community, agency or place of education
  • Understand the structure and layout out of the five lessons
  • Learn the core concepts of each lesson and how the lessons are connected 
  • Learn how the program has been aligned with Instructional Content of Wisconsin-Approved Standards for school counselors, informational technology and social emotional literacies
  • Practice the activities together and work through exercises

Sessions will include virtual breakout small group discussions and activities.
