The latest volume in the Forensic Psychotherapy Series discusses one of the most controversial, taboo, and misunderstood subjects in the psychoanalytic arena today -- pedophilia. A variety of treatments and therapies, including brain surgery, electric shock treatment and incarceration, have not succeeded in treating this condition. In this volume, a range of eminent and expert professionals go further: into the mind of the pedophile, using dream interpretation, free association, fantasies and memories, in a bid to comprehend the exact nature; the how, when and why, of pedophilia.

Contributors include Wilfred Abse, William Greer, Daniel P. Juda, Brett Kahr, Loretta R. Loeb, C.W. Socarides, Vamik D. Volkan

Industry Reviews

'This book constitutes the first major textbook on the paedophilias, and we trust that it will be a spur to others to analyse paedophile perverts as well as to tenderly care for the wounds of the child victims who are described within its pages.' - From the Preface
