From Victim to Offender: How Child Sexual Abuse Victims Become Offenders

From Victim to Offender: How Child Sexual Abuse Victims Become Offenders Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Autobiographical stories, written by people who were child victims and became offenders, provide unique insights into the problem of child sexual abuse.

Synopsis:

From Victim to Offender shows how victims of child sexual abuse become juvenile and adult offenders. The stories told by these offenders reveal the vulnerability of boys to paedophiles and pederasts who provide the male attention lacking in some children's home lives. They show how early sexualisation damages children's sexual development, their relationships and their adult lives. The story of a female offender reveals that this problem is not confined to boys. These stories highlight the inadequacy of current child protection programs for the protection of boys. The editor's introduction and the chapter from a psychologist who specialises in the treatment of offenders emphasise the need to improve child protection and treatment programs for offenders. From Victim to Offender offers unique insights into the experiences of victims and offenders of sexual abuse, and is essential reading for professionals who are concerned about child protection and those responsible for the rehabilitation of offenders.
