From Victim to Offender provides unique insights into the problem of child sexual abuse, from people who were child victims and became offenders. Their stories reveal the vulnerability of boys to paedophiles and pederasts. They show how early sexualisation affects and damages their sexual development, their relationships and adult lives. From Victim to Offend reveals the inadequacy of present-day child protection education for the protection of boys. It emphasises the need for well advertised and readily available treatment facilities for offenders and the importance of assessment and treatment programmes in prison systems.
