A Swedish sample of 45 adolescent males who have sexualy offended: background data, individual characteristics and offending behaviour

Hans Arvidsson

There is almost a theoretical vacuum concerning the role of sexuality in sexual abuse. More knowledge regarding this factor might contribute to an understanding useful in treatment and prevention. Therefore, this study focuses on knowledge, attitudes, and experiences of sexuality in a group of 45 male adolescents who have sexually offended.
The target group consisted of 45 adolescent males with a mean age of 16.2 years who had committed sexual offences towards children, adolescents, or adults. Nine of the participants were voluntary patients at psychiatric clinics, and 36 were placed at institutions. The instruments used were semistructured interviews, a questionnaire measuring Sexual Knowledge and Beliefs together with Social Sexual Desirability, and staff-assessments.

Conflict of Interest: None disclosed
Financial Support/Funding: The study was granted by the Swedish National Board of Institutional Care

Recorded at 19th WAS World Congress for Sexual Health - Sexual Health & Rights: A Global Challenge Göteborg (Sweden) - June 21 – 25
