About the Talk

Drawing on current global literature, along with the experiences of young people, Melinda will explore how the proliferation of sexualised images and messages contributes to a distorted view of bodies, relationships and sexuality in young people, hampering their healthy physical, emotional and social development. 

She will provide practical tips on how we can address this toxic culture and raise happy, healthy and resilient young people who value their dignity and self-worth and aspire to relationships based on respect and authentic connection.

“Don’t miss this event!” said Sydney Catholic Schools’ Education Officer: Church Engagement, Elsa Manu. “It will be the best thing you’ll ever do for your child.”
