In today’s episode we're joined by Juliet Grayson, the director of StopSO (Specialist Treatment Organisation for Perpetrators and Survivors of Sexual Offences)to discuss the causes and treatment of pedophilia.

We explore the origins of sexual attraction to minors in adults, what causes a pedophile to move from a sexual attraction to minors to actually committing an offence, how and why we should change public perception towards non-offending pedophiles.

We discuss the importance of providing people who are attracted to children with access to treatment, what therapy for pedophilia consists of and how it can help, and why preventing the first offence is not only more ethical, but more cost effective than punishment.
