Event description

Description

A broad body of international research describes numerous negative outcomes from an adolescent’s exposure to pornography. Some of these effects include adapting attitudes of sexual objectification, increased sexual aggression, increased positivity towards uncommitted sexual exploration, negative gender attitudes, compulsivity and addictive behaviours, reduced self-esteem and increased sexualised behaviours on social media. All of these add up to a worrying trend among our young people. In this Agora we will explore some of the current research being undertaken and look at ways that our schools can begin to address this issue.

Rev Marshall Ballantine-Jones

Speaker: Rev Marshall Ballantine-Jones

Marshall Ballantine-Jones is married to Rebecca and has four children. Brought up in a minister’s family, his first postgrad career was in business as a financial analyst and computer programmer, after which he studied at Moore College and became an Anglican minister. After 12 years in various parish-based roles, he moved to Youthworks in 2010 to be the publisher for CEP (Christian Education Publications). He is currently the Chair of the Taskforce for Resisting Pornography and is undertaking a major research project on all aspects of pornography, with particular focus in reducing its impact among teenagers. He likes playing jazz piano, most sports, reading 19th Century fiction, experimenting with malt and hops, and hanging out with his family.


Agora

Agora is an exciting, virtual and face-to-face learning community through which teachers, university students, academics, researchers and education practitioners can share, discuss and debate particular topics, and explore the interaction between Christian beliefs and educational practice. Two Agora evenings will be held each year, focusing on current educational issues and how they relate to Christian education in the 21st century.

Completing Exposed: The effect of pornography and sexualised media on students will contribute 2 hours of NESA accredited PD addressing 6.2.2 and 6.3.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
