Psychologist Says Early Developmental Trauma May Lead To Hypersexualized Behavior In Adolescents



Robbie, 15, has been living in a mental health facility for the past year. The teenager admits he has sexual urges toward children and has confessed to molesting two victims.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Teen in crisis?

Robbie’s parents, Rick and Kristin, say that Robbie, who is about to be released from treatment, has told them that he is likely to re-offend. Noting that they have five other children, the couple says they can’t bring Robbie home and don’t know where to turn.

Dr. Phil introduces the couple to Dr. Daniel Sanderson, a psychologist and Clinical Director at STAR Guides Wilderness, a program that works exclusively with adolescents who are experiencing issues with compulsive sexual behaviors.

“Let’s don’t give up on this kid yet,” says Dr. Sanderson, who has offered Robbie an opportunity to take part in the program.

Watch the video above to find out what Dr. Sanderson and Dr. Phil say about how early developmental trauma and neurological delays may lead to hypersexualized patterns and behaviors in adolescents.

    I’ve never heard anyone call him “Phil” before. It sounds dirty.

    Watching this about Robbie gives me some hope that maybe someday I can get some help.
    I'm currently 17 almost 18 with some form of hypersexuality, It gets really hard to deal with but I've found ways to keep myself under control the best I can, which is a bit physically draining and damaging, it's just better than harming anyone else at least. I hope to someday go somewhere that can diagnose me properly and give me the help I need, I'm just scared if I wait much longer that it'll be harder to fix 🙁
    I hope Robbie is able to get help, pedophilia sounds like it'd be harder to fix than my own problem though, i just wish him the best of luck with it.

    Doesn't matter how much treatment that kid has. He should be barred from every working with or being around any children.

    So nobody is going to ask what happened to this child as the result of him being so sexually advanced??? Either he was molested and violated as a child or he was exposed to sexual behavior early on by an older relative. No one is speaking up on that.

    Why is nobody asking the kid “who abused you?” — because clearly this is about power and control over someone he sees as weaker than himself.

    "Surprisingly low" is not the same as zero. It means that some of them still reoffend, even after "treatment" a.k.a. harm more kids and ruin their lives. How is that okay…

    The trauma is definitely from the damn parents. They are no heroes, they are contributors. We worship women who created the situations in their traumatized and dysfunctional children and then applaud them for acting like martyrs trying to "fix it" in a halfhearted way that gives them adoration and attention.

    Going back to that video saying Robbie was with that one other guy that had requested he be alone with only him before she stopped it, that man could have been grooming him from a young age.

    that woman is stronger than most. both parents are. i would not have been able to even think if my child told me something like this. i don’t have kids and i won’t for a long time but if my child ended up like this i’m not sure i would be able to care about them anymore.

    Their brains are different, no one knows why, and you can't correct that. So, what, exactly, do you intend to do to "treat" such a person? You can't trust anyone like that around people. Age isn't relevant.

    It’s very sad and enraging that the only one who’s trying to help him is his step mother. Where’s the mother, why is the father so useless?!

    I feel like there's too much focus on the parents. I want to know more about the kid. He clearly knows right from wrong. Idc what he told the docs. He told his parents about his urges and demanded help before he hurts someone. That proves he knows his urges and actions are wrong. That proves he doesn't want to hurt people.

    If i was him and docs couldn't cure my urges, I would lie my docs so theyre forced to keep me locked up instead of pushing me out into the world once I turn 18 because I show i dont want to hurt people.

    I have a student who I suspect has the same issues, it’s scary to watch knowing what could potentially happen to another child because of another’s trauma.
