The Alannah and Madeleine Foundation (AMF) was funded through the Online Safety Grants Program to develop and implement a program that reduces technology-facilitated harm of a sexualised nature (i.e. online abuse) perpetrated by young men aged 15-17.
Partnering with Swinburne University of Technology, AMF aimed to co-design an innovative and evidence-based intervention that focuses on increasing the capacity of young men to make ethical decisions when initiating, responding to and/or sharing online communications of a sexual or intimate nature.
This evaluation report seeks to build young men’s capacity to manage their feelings in response to perceived rejection and to model respectful and ethical online communication. This innovative approach seeks to complement existing resources that aim to change attitudes around masculinity, increase awareness of the impact of image-based abuse and online harassment, or to model bystander intervention.
