The Introduction

Purpose of the research

A research on the of pedophiles as an adult attachment ‘ is an interesting and important subject since it has become [banner_entry_middle]

a major focus of psychiatry in recent years . Researches propagate several theories about the condition and risks of the `illness ‘ and how it can be effectively cured and treated . More importantly , people have questioned if in fact the condition could be effectively cured (Campo-Flores 2002

The lack of sufficient knowledge of people about the exact conditions behind the occurrence of pedophilia in the population has made studies really difficult .

There is also a social worker that molested nine children multiple times . In fact , the social worker even videotaped the sexual act (Cloud 2002 . These kinds of incidences show that indeed the occurrence of child sexual abuse perpetrated by adults could occur in practically any situation

The authors maintain that the process of confrontation during treatment may not be as therapeutic as possible . In fact , it can even be countertherapeutic requiring more supportive help especially in the beginning stages (Kear-Colwell and Boer 2000

Janssen ‘s (2002 ) describes the cultural variations in the developmental curricularization of eroticism ‘ The author mentions that Western eroticism in some ways are legitimised within peer subcultures instead of referring it within the family (Janssen , D .F . Oct . 2002
