What is sextortion and why is it on the rise? We asked returning guest Dr. Justin Patchin, Co-Founder of the Cyberbullying Research Center to share about growing trends of sextortion - what has caused its rise and why kids make such common targets for predators.
He also gives an overview of a new tool "Take It Down," aimed at helping victims of sextortion have their image taken down across various platforms and how he recommends families approach these kinds of tough topics through harm reduction and supportive practices.
