Basics to protect yourself
Revenge Porn, Sexual Voyeurism, Child Pornography
We will provide an easy-to-understand explanation of the hidden functions of smartphones and how Internet searches work. Through case studies, participants will learn how sexual images are spread and the current situation of being disadvantaged in the future. The course aims to explain the psychological situation that makes it difficult to answer ambiguously or refuse when asked by the opposite sex to take sexual photos or film them, and to work together to think about how to refuse.
Damage to AV and the Sex Industry
By learning about the realities of pornography and the sex industry, we aim to deepen our understanding of the disparity in bargaining power between young women and sexually exploitative businesses, as well as the disparity in the quality and quantity of information. I will not fall for it, I am fine! The more you think you are, the more likely you are to be victimized. Even if they try not to get involved, operators will approach young women in a variety of ways. We all have weaknesses, and if you are a young woman, even your dreams and hopes can be a weakness. If you are a young woman, even your dreams and hopes can be a weakness.
How to respond to the damage
Revenge Porn, Sexual Voyeurism, Child Pornography
We provide explanations on how to respond to customers when they ask for advice on damage, based on case studies.
The course will deepen learning about various methods, making full use of Internet technology and the law, regarding laws to remedy damage, methods to identify perpetrators, and requests for deletion. In the course for counselors, role-plays, group discussions and role-plays will be conducted to master consultation assistance techniques in digital sexual violence.
Victimization of AV and sex industry
This course explains the counseling support for those who are involved in pornography and sex industry and face troublesome problems, and discusses what kind of support can actually be provided. We will also explain the psychology of young women who are unable to consult with their family or friends because of their sexual problems and are left on their own. Participants will deepen their knowledge on how to respond to family members and acquaintances who ask for help.
In the course for counselors, through role-plays and group discussions, participants will acquire counseling and assistance skills for sexual violence that occurs in the sex industry and digital sexual violence.
Handouts and Presentation Images
Young women are being targeted by the explosion of smartphones and increasingly sophisticated sexual exploitation businesses. At PAPS, we will explain the current situation of damage as seen from the consultation site and the knowledge (digital literacy) to avoid or prevent problems, with slides to introduce the knowledge. In the course for supporters, role-plays and group discussions based on consultation cases will be conducted to deepen learning about digital sexual violence and its social work practices while staying close to the counselors and accompanying them.
The course is designed for a group of 5 or more people,
