Sexting has received considerable media attention in recent years. Several tragic cases have highlighted the far-reaching consequences that sexting can have. The objective of this article is, therefore, to inform teachers and counselors about current research on sexting in order to help them understand the various facets of this behavior, as well as the reasons why adolescents engage in it and how it correlates with other risk behaviors. The discussion also addresses ways in which schools can respond to and prevent sexting incidents.
