THE iME SCHOOL PROGRAM

The iMe Movement is a collective of educators, digital experts, counsellors and psychologists actively looking to shed light on behavioural addiction in adolescents – especially in relation to digital exposure.

Key focus areas include Digital-  Gaming-  Pornography- addiction, eating disorders, self-harm, cyber bullying etc.

We currently actively counsel at schools, workshop relevant topics with parents and youth groups and run pornography addiction recovery groups.

We provide the following 3-prong solutions to schools, churches and communities:

latest scientific and psychological research.

behavioural addictions such as pornography, gaming, social media etc.

training material to the school's counsellor / teachers
to provide ongoing support to parents and students

Q&A

FAQ'S

DOES THE iME MOVEMENT TAKE A RELIGIOUS OR POLITICAL STANCE?

Our goal is to raise awareness and discourse based on scientific facts and personal experience suitable for any audience.

IS PORNOGRAPHY REALLY AN ISSUE AMONG TEENS?

The average age of first exposure to pornography is 11 years old. The largest group of online pornography users is youth ages 12-17. This is something that teens are dealing with on a daily basis and most of them have no idea of the potential harm that is caused by pornography.

US Department of Justice:

“Never before in the history of telecommunications media has so much indecent (and obscene) material been so easily accessible by so many minors in so many homes with so few restrictions”

WILL TALKING ABOUT THE ISSUE CAUSE MORE CURIOSITY?

We have put much time and resources into developing a presentation that does not cause curiosity by not going into graphic detail or giving them any information on how to find it. We focus on the effects of behavioural addiction and pornography in particular rather than pornography itself.

We do this by discussing the brain science of addiction and how there are potential physical, psychological and social effects to pornography. Our presentation is designed to educate them about the dangers of addiction and encourage them to live a happier, healthier, easier life without addiction.

WILL MY CHILD BE EXPOSED TO INAPPROPRIATE MATERIAL IN THE PRESENTATION?

Of course not. We educate on the subject without displaying any sort of questionable imagery. Parents who have seen the presentation agree that the material is appropriate for youth.

DOES THE PRESENTATION REPLACE THE CONVERSATION AT HOME?

Absolutely not. If anything, our approach will aid and encourage that conversation to happen in the home. We believe that parents are an essential part of the solution. Our efforts are focused around peer-to-peer encouragement to help redefine the social norms and help them understand that addiction and in particular pornography is not cool and has harmful effects. This will help teens feel more comfortable openly discussing the issue with their parents.
