Keynote Speaker — Professor Tanya Byron
Renowned children’s mental health expert and clinical psychologist Prof. Tanya Byron will be Digital Families 2019’s keynote speaker. It's been 10 years since the Byron Review. Tanya's report — Safer Children in a Digital World — made vital recommendations to the government for improving digital wellbeing for children. We're thrilled she'll be sharing her views on how this important topic has evolved since then — and what the next steps are.
More speakers and agenda to be announced soon...
First workshop announced! NCA-CEOP will be exploring harmful sexual behaviour
At Digital Families 2019, NCA-CEOP will use the latest research and intelligence received to explore preventative measures to tackle 'harmful sexual behaviour' (HSB). They will show you the educational resources that can support children and young people to reject negative attitudes and norms and make their way towards a safer future online. HSB can appear in children of any age, both online and off. Identifying and responding to a child’s HSB (either towards themselves, or another child, young person, or adult) is crucial in safeguarding the children that you work with.
