Title of presentation: The challenges of working with young people online
Cool2talk is an NHS webiste for young people in Tayside and The Western Isles. It answers young peoples questions anonymously and confidentially. An online chat section was introduced and I will feed back the results of a survey carried out this during my presentation.
I will also offer my take on the positives and negatives of working with young people online
I have been a nurse for 40 years, childrens, midwifery and sexual health.
I qualified with a Diploma in Counselling in 2005 at Abertay University after which I started doing Psychosexual counselling and undertook training for this in Glasgow.
I have worked voluntarily in the local secondary school for five years doing face to face counselling, and have been doing online counselling for the past year, on an NHM website that has been running for over 10 years.
