Sexting, an act of sending nude or semi-nude pictures by electronic media, is becoming an increasingly accepted phenomenon among adolescents. There are serious legal and ethical challenges associated with adolescent texting for school administrators, law enforcement, parents, and professional counselors. We discuss strategies useful to professional counselors for both addressing and preventing sexting incidents.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe protections for children under the age of majority (18-19)
2. Discuss how the term “child pornography” is interpreted in the U.S.
3. Describe mental health implications for adolescents impacted by sexting and/or cyberbullying; and
4. Articulate the unique roles of professional mental health counselors and professional school counselors in preventing and intervening in sexting incidents.

During her tenure, she served as Coordinator of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program and helped to establish the Upsilon Sigma Alpha Chapter of CSI at the institution.

Dr. Millner has published over two dozen research papers in professional peer-reviewed journals and contributed to a book, a book chapter, and encyclopedia entries on matters related to interpersonal communication, human sexuality, ethics, and public health. Her published work has appeared in professional journals such as the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Southern Medical Journal, The Journal of Counseling and Development, and The Family Journal. She has presented and contributed to more than 80 research presentations at international, national, and regional meetings.

Her research efforts associated with adolescent risky sexual behavior was supported by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
