As a result of greater access to the Internet and its ever-expanding resources, individuals, especially adolescents, are at risk of being exposed to inaccurate, and in some cases, dangerous sexual content. The proposed presentation will provide those interacting with adolescents with a helpful framework for addressing the intersection of technology and sexuality with youth. Attendees will learn about the potential risks and benefits that the Internet offers regarding sexual education, why adolescents’ development and neurobiology places them at greater risk of unsafe online behavior, key resources that can help frame the issue for adults, and emerging interventions designed to address such issues with teenagers and help facilitate their growth as responsible digital citizens.
The presenter is Dr. Alex Rodrigues. He is a forensic psychologist and operates a private consultation practice where he completes a variety of forensic evaluations, including sex offense-related evaluations, competency to stand trial, insanity, and juvenile transfer assessments. Dr. Rodrigues has been qualified as an expert and testified in various jurisdictions. The Colorado Sex Offender Management Board (CSOMB) has recognized Dr. Rodrigues as an approved provider/evaluator for both juvenile and adult populations. Additionally, he is a volunteer participant for CSOMB’s best practice committee, reviewing emerging practices for adoption and implementation. He previously served as a psychologist on a pre-trial unit at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, D.C. as well as a member of the hospital’s forensic consultation service, completing both competency to stand trial and risk assessments. Recently, Dr. Rodrigues opened a satellite office in Colorado to complement his practice in the D.C. metropolitan area. Aside from court-related evaluations, Dr. Rodrigues provides consultation to law enforcement, government agencies, and corporations on mental health/violence related issues in the workspace.
