Main content

This course will discuss cutting edge research on the harm of exploitation of youth on the internet. This kind of exploitation includes the documented sexual abuse which is traded and sold online; online streaming; luring children and adolescents into relationships where they willingly send nude pictures; and organized sex rings use the material for creation of child sexual abuse material.

Research on this burgeoning area of harm to children and adolescents is only beginning, but it is important for therapists to be updated about those current trends, the harm that can come to youth from this source, the widespread nature of this type of exploitation and some of the legal ramifications.

Through case examples, the participants will learn trauma treatment principles that are effective and those that are not as effective with this population, and the special problems that can arise from working with these victims who feel that their trauma never ends as the pictures of their abuse can remain online indefinitely.


1. Participants will be able to name three ways perpetrators can exploit vulnerable youth on the internet.

2. Participants will be able to name three types of symptoms that are common in this population.

3 . Participants will be able to identify the brain pathways affected by early abuse.

4. Participants will be able to describe the sequence of treatment with young children utilized in internet pornography.

The conference is approved by the Norwegian Psychological Association to give 7 hrs credit as continued education in clinical psychology. 

Den Norske Legeforeningen har godkjent konferansen for fagfeltet psykiatri med 7 timer for leger i spesialisering og spesialistenes etterutdanning.
