Youth-produced sexual images: A victim-centred consensus approach By Dr. Ethel Quayle and Dr. Laura Cariola
The report reflects the views of a sample of young people who have taken and shared
sexual images of themselves, and three groups of professionals whose work exposes
them to the challenges of managing these cases if, and when, they come to light. The
aim was to complement existing UK procedural guidelines for Schools and Colleges
(UKCCIS, 2016) and Police (College of Policing, 2016) through explicitly seeking the
involvement of adolescents (Study 1) alongside those of multiple stakeholders across
three sites (Study 2). This work is supported by ESRC Impact Accelerator funding and
follows the earlier work from the SPIRTO project.

Michelle O’Reilly is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Leicester, working for the Greenwood Institute of Child Health and a Research Consultant for Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust. Her research activities focus on qualitative research in child mental health. For example, recent work has examined family therapy interactions and child mental health assessments. Michelle uses discourse analysis and conversation analysis to look at the social construction of mental health and to explore in detail the interactions between health professionals, parents and children. Her current project is a collection of approximately 42 hours of initial assessment data with 28 families attending their first appointment at the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).

I trained as a clinical psychologist at Queen’s University Belfast before completing my doctorate at Surrey University. During this time I was employed in a variety of clinical positions in adult mental health in the UK and Ireland before joining University College Cork in 1995. In Cork I was responsible for post-graduate training in CBT (MA and HDip) as well as director of the COPINE Project. As a practitioner I had worked with both sex offenders and their victims and for the last fourteen years have been working in the area of Internet abuse images, collaborating internationally with government and non-government agencies. The COPINE project took as its focus children made vulnerable through the new technologies.
