Webinar: Sexualized Media and Children

I’m so excited to be a part of Hardy Girls Healthy Women’s Parenting Series again this year! They have developed a great line up of resources for parents this year. In mine, I’ll be sharing information from my book, Sexualized Media Messages and Our Children: Teaching Kids to be Smart Critics and Consumers, with a focus on understanding how we can help the children and teens in our lives become empowered media critics. I’ll share some specific strategies that you can use today to begin to build a child’s media literacy skills.

Check out the details below, I hope to see you all there!

Dr. Jennifer Shewmaker

This webinar takes a look at children’s consumption of sexualized media messages while providing parents, teachers, and professionals with strategies for dealing with their influence. In this eye-opening discussion, experienced child psychologist Jennifer Shewmaker takes a hard look at the impact of advertisements, products, and entertainment on a child’s psyche and offers strategies for helping kids become critical, active media consumers. Drawing from research in a wide variety of disciplines, the webinar explores the interpersonal factors within children’s lives that impact how they learn to process sexualized media messages. Participants will receive tips for promoting strengths in children and adolescents of both genders and learn about the protective influence of communities on helping children dismiss distorted media images in favor of a character-based mindset.
