28 Sep St. Paul’s Talks: violent groups on social media.
The new school year brings back St. Paul’s Talks, a space where we address crucial topics for the education and well-being of our students. This time, we invite you to a talk that will address one of the most pressing issues in our digital society: cyberbullying.
Why is this talk essential?
We live in a constantly evolving digital era, where our children are more connected than ever. However, this interconnection has also brought about a disturbing increase in online harassment. The inappropriate use of social media can have a devastating impact on the lives of our young people, as witnessed by the experiences shared by teenagers from different parts of the world.
“They told me on social media, ‘If you don’t send us that picture of yourself, don’t come back to school.’ After this, I just wanted to die.” – 14-year-old teenager, Barcelona.
“For some people, it’s like a drug. Once you start, you can’t stop. It soothes being on the internet.” – 13-year-old teenager, Paris.
“If something happens at school, you’re sad. Then, at home, you spend your time on the internet.” – 10-year-old child, Düsseldorf.
To explore the prevention of this issue, the Monica Toscano Prevention In Act Foundation will accompany us in our first St. Paul’s Talks of 2023. In “How to empower our children when danger knocks on their doors: Violent groups on social media,” they will provide us with prevention tools and well-being advice.
As you already know, St. Paul’s School teachers have been applying the MONICA TOSCANO PREVENTION IN ACT® Method for almost 20 years to prevent and detect any dynamics of school bullying in the classrooms and preserve the well-being of the students. It is our absolute priority, and Monica Toscano, as a recognized expert in the field, advises us on the practical use of this method.
