  • Overview

    We regularly speak with our adolescent patients about sexual development and healthy relationships. In addition to addressing normal anatomy and sexually transmitted diseases, we must also contend with the effects of exposure to hypersexualized images at earlier ages, accounts of dating violence and other inappropriate teen behavior. Adolescent boys, in particular, may be stereotyped as aggressive, obsessed with sex or disrespectful of their partners in a relationship. How can we best approach discussions about healthy relationships with our male teen patients and address behaviors that warrant our attention? Dr. Lee Sanders, associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in Florida, shares his approach to these oft-sensitive conversations with host Dr. Jennifer Shu.
