Western 21st century life is saturated in sex – because “sex sells”, they tell us. Sex sells cars, yoghurt, shampoo, moisturiser, antiperspirants, noodles, and even car insurance. This course will take you through the studies and reports that set out the evidence for the hypersexualisation of society and how this is impacting boys and girls growing up in today’s sexualised world. 

This course explores theories for why this is happening and how children are objectifying themselves from as early as just 7-years-old.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  • To understand how society, the media, and culture increase and encourage the hyper-sexualisation and objectification of children
  • To understand the theories, evidence, and experience of children who have been influenced by hyper-sexualisation and objectification
  • To understand the psychological impact of these processes and how it contributes to Child Sexual Exploitation

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
