Funded by the Queensland Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women, this training has been designed for use by all adults who care for older children and teens at risk of, or already have experiences with cyberbullying.
According to research by the eSafety Commissioner, 1 in 5 young people experience cyberbullying and online abuse and 55% seek help from their parents/carers.
The training program is specifically designed to be a pocket ready resource which can be easily accessed via any smart phone or tablet, with easy navigation and practical, supportive information. This training model fits in with suicide prevention activities and can be tailored to a community in a safe, postvention stage who are transitioning back into the prevention phase.
The Parentline Cyberbullying training will be helpful to parents, carers and grandparents who are:
Nervous or fearful of using the internet or new devices
Anxious about their young ones using the internet
Concerned cyberbullying may be impacting their child
Concerned their child may be engaging in cyberbullying behaviours
Would like to learn how to identify when cyberbullying may be impacting their family unit
Would like supportive, practical information around starting uncomfortable conversations
