What do others say about

Catherine Knibbs?

I have known Cath for a number of years having first met her when she was leading a training session on cyber trauma. She subsequently helped me build coherent child-facing communications on our trial product Oyoty.  I have been impressed with the hands-on guidance Cath provided for our project as well as her knowledge, passion and pursuit for impact in the domain of online wellbeing of children. Cyber trauma and online harms is a continually developing area and the work I do (in child protection)builds upon up-to-date research and guidance from academics as well as other actors closely working in the field. I highly recommended  Cath for all your training and information needs.

I have known Cath for a number of years having first met her when she was leading a training session on cyber trauma. I was really impressed with the range, breadth and depth of knowledge that Cath had for the subject, as well as her ability to discuss complex issues in a way that anyone can understand with plenty of real examples to give impact. Cyber trauma and online harms is a continually developing area and the work I do in child protection relies on clear, up-to-date information from academics working in the field. Cath is always the first person I turn to for advice and guidance. Highly recommended for all your training and information needs.

Cybertrauma:

What can we, as teachers, therapists and other professionals, do?

Cybertrauma is trauma that happens when using technology. A lot of it will be connected to the internet in one way or another. Cyber bullying can happen on social media, in games, or even in classroom Zoom sessions.

As the adults in or near the situation, what can we do?

I can help. I am an international educator and author, Online Harms consultant, researcher and clinician, helping professionals protect the child from online harms in the metaverse.

Children are often much more tech savvy than parents and other adults in their lives, and will use games, social media and the internet in general from early on in life. With my help, teachers, therapists and other professionals in child facing roles can get clued up on what to look out for and how to help when cybertrauma does happen. I can also help with safeguarding against these issues in the first place.
