Using qualitative content analysis to explore young people’s view on sexting

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.
