Juliet Grayson (@CounsellorsCPD) is an psychotherapist, coach and teacher, specialising in working with people with relationship and sexual problems, and people with terminal illness.
She is the author of “Landscapes of the Heart, The Working World of a Sex and Relationship Therapist“, and the director of StopSO (Specialist Treatment Organisation for Perpetrators and Survivors of Sexual Offences), a UK-wide independent network of suitably qualified professionals willing and trained to work with potential sex offenders, sex offenders and their families.
In today’s episode we explore the causes of sexual attraction to minors in adults, what causes a pedophile to move from a sexual attraction to minors to actually committing an offense, how and why we should change public perception towards non-offending pedophiles.
We discuss the importance of providing people who are attracted to children with access to treatment, what therapy for pedophilia consists of and how it can help, and why preventing the first offense is not only more ethical, but more cost effective than punishment.
