The New Technologies Conference was held at The Scottish Police College, on Friday 1st March 2013 bringing together a group of practitioners, academics and other professionals from across the public and voluntary sectors to explore the issue of new technologies in relation to children and young people and sexually harmful behaviour. The conference, jointly organised by the National Development Team (NDT) at the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice and WithScotland, was attended by over 150 individuals. This was a stimulating, thought-provoking and challenging day that allowed delegates to think and talk about this complex and contested issue. A full audio recording of all keynote addresses can be accessed through the website of the Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Service (IRISS) in addition to a transcript of interviews with some of the speakers and workshop leads:
Furthermore, video footage of all of the keynote addresses can be accessed at WithScotland and copies of the majority of the keynote presentations and all of the Powerpoint presentations from the workshops can be accessed via the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice..
