Inside Teaching : August 2010
www.atra.edu.au | firstname.lastname@example.org RESEARCH 51 are choosing to speak out to either adults or peers about their experience. This is in spite of the reportedly high effcacy of this strategy and the fact that many claim it is the advice they would give others. Most young people are familiar with, and active users of, online intervention and blocking tools, and these may offer a fruitful strategy for schools to pursue. Given the importance that social networking sites play in the lives of teenagers, it may be of value for schools to teach specifc strategies to help those in this age group to protect themselves when using this medium. ■ Megan Price is a senior researcher at BoysTown. Her research involves issues impacting young people, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. She is currently involved in a research project regarding help- seeking behaviour among young Indigenous Australians. John Dalgleish manages the Strategy and Research Team at BoysTown. He is currently the principal investigator in a research project being funded by the Australian Research Council on effective strategies to re- engage marginalised youth with education and employment.
