About this Event
This workshop introduces key findings of the ARC Linkage Project ‘Safety, risk and wellbeing on dating apps’, a partnership between Swinburne University of Technology, Sydney University, ACON Health Pty Ltd and Family Planning NSW. This event is open to professionals in the fields of sexual health promotion, health services, sexuality education and youth support services.
The presentation draws on a mixed-methods study which invited NSW dating app users aged 18-35 to share their experiences of app use. We will share key findings related to: managing mental health and personal wellbeing; negotiating consent and safer sex; and dealing with harassment/abuse.
Participants will leave with a basic understanding of:
• The range of apps and social media platforms that Australians of diverse genders and sexualities use to connect with new partners for casual hook-ups and/or longer-term relationships;
• The aspects of app design and app culture that make users feel safer or less safe;
• The strategies dating app users draw on to feel happier and safer using when apps and meeting up with new partners;
• The information and services Australian app users want from health professionals and health organisations.
The workshop will be facilitated by members of the Swinburne research team, and members of the ACON Health and Family Planning NSW and health promotion teams.
The workshop combines a mini-lecture format with small and large group discussion, and personal reflection activities, while the webinar is more focused on the research presentation, plus Q&A. In both cases, participants will be provided with ‘cheat-sheet’ resources to share with their colleagues. You will also be invited to complete a short (optional) survey immediately pre and post the workshop.
Please sign up to this event to register your attendance.
If you are interested in this workshop but cannot travel to Sydney to attend on this date, you have the option of attending a webinar hosted by Family Planning NSW. Please email Tinonee Pym (tpym at swin.edu.au) to be added to the webinar mailing list.
