Focusing on Culture Reframed’s Programs for Parents, this presentation will cover the conceptualization of the programs, the theory of change that underlies the overall strategy and vision, how (and why) they were developed to ensure scientific credibility, and the way in which the programs are part of—and promote—a public health approach to the problem of hypersexualized media and pornography. The presentation also will address challenges, both political and cultural, to the development and dissemination of the programs, and the ways in which Culture Reframed, as part of the ecosystem of efforts working to protect children and youth from the harms of pornography, is working to address those challenges.
Participants will gain a nuanced and in-depth understanding of the public health approach to engaging parents and caregivers in helping to develop a generation of youth that is porn resilient and resistant.
This presentation will explore how a theory of change is operationalized to develop robust and research-driven programs.
Participants will gain an understanding of how different stakeholders can work together to raise awareness about the harms of pornography.
