Childhood experiences of perpetrators of child sexual abuse

, : Childhood experiences of perpetrators of child sexual abuse. Perspectives in Psychiatric Care 49(3): 187-201

This study explored the childhood experiences of perpetrators of child sexual abuse. A blend of narrative inquiry and phenomenology was employed. Interviews were conducted with 23 community-dwelling perpetrators (21 males, 2 females). The education of participants ranged from GED to PhD. There were four types of narratives: There Was No Love; Love Left; Love Was Conflated With Sex; and a Pretty Good Childhood. Chronic sorrow for a painful childhood was evident in most participants. Cognitive-behavioral treatment may not be optimal for all perpetrators because it is not designed to facilitate recovery from early trauma and loss.
