Analysing the Child Sex Offender
Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Anderson

Susie Orbach, the noted author, psychotherapist and feminist thinker, has spent years researching the psychology of sex offenders. She is clear in her mind on the self-loathing of such people — “With sexual violence, what the victim is receiving is the self-hatred of the individual who is expressing that pain and upset that is inside of them in a very explosive manner.”

But how can such knowledge help society understand, identify and rehabilitate offenders? She is joined for this difficult analysis by Anthony Beech, a professor in criminological psychology
