Abstract

The rationale for exploring adolescent pornography usage, with examination of possible negative emotional health outcomes, is integral to the role of the school nurse.

The role of the school nurse is to lead on, coordinate and deliver the 4-5-6 approach of the Healthy Child Programme (Public Health England, 2018). This model specifically states that school nurses need to support young people with a number of high impact areas. These include: developing resilience and wellbeing; keeping young people safe and promoting healthy lifestyles. Therefore, the rationale for this paper is integral to the school nurses’ role.

Possible psycho-sexual implications of online pornography consumption in adolescents correlate with multiple high-impact areas, specifically promoting healthy lifestyles, developing resilience and well-being, thereby warranting further examination on the topic, especially with the current significance of emotional health in adolescents.
