Photo FDCTWO educational forums on youth internet safety will be presented in mid-July and early spring.
Sydney child psychiatrist Dr Philip Tam will present a practical overview of internet psychology and addiction.
The forum is intended for doctors, allied health professionals and other interested child-related workers.
It will be held on Thursday, July 16, from 6.30-8pm at the Gibraltar Hotel on Centennial Road in Bowral.
Cyber safety expert and former Victorian policewoman Susan McLean will speak about managing online risk.
The forum is intended for parents, schools and other interested child-related community groups.
It will be held on September 17 from 6-7.30pm at the Mittagong RSL Club on Bessemer Sreett, in the auditorium. Organiser Cath Brennan said the forums arose from the experience of local doctors helping children suffering cyber bullying.
She said many children were presenting to local health care providers with anxieties and distress after nasty online encounters.
“The forums will answer audience questions to help empower parents and carers in cyber safety practices,” Ms Brennan said.
The free forums are a BDCU Children’s Foundation initiative, supported by the Rotary Club of Berrima District.
Drinks and refreshments will be served at both events. RSVP to [email protected]南京夜网 by Thursday, July 9.
