The research team is happy to answer questions about The Prevention Study or the treatments offered in the Sexual Behaviours Clinic (SBC). We know pedophilia is a difficult and emotional topic, and we want the public to understand that the goal of this study is one we all share - to prevent sexual offences against children.
In the SBC, we work toward this goal by treating people with pedophilia so that they can lead happy, healthy lives without offending. But we also believe that everyone has a role to play in preventing child sexual abuse! This is why we want to help educate the public on the Myths & Realities about pedophilia - especially the fact that not all people with pedophilia commit sexual offences.
By educating the public about pedophilia, we hope to reduce the stigma associated with this psychiatric disorder. Helping to reduce the stigma around pedophilia is one way that everyone can contribute to preventing child sexual abuse. Less stigma makes it more likely that people with pedophilia will be comfortable enough to admit their problem and seek treatment before offending.
