Michael Sheath, Lucy Faithfull Foundation, in an interview from #Skillnadpåriktigt 2018
Michael Sheath from The Lucy Faithfull Foundation in the UK talks about why it is important to work with perpetrators as a method of prevention. By understanding what perpetrators think and do, and how they behave on the internet, you can get clues as to how to intervene early to prevent the sexual abuse of children.
At the #skillnadpåriktigt conference in 2018, Michael Sheath spoke about the psychological drivers that lead some people to view child sexual abuse material and why he believes that this habit often derives from viewing adult pornography. The presentation was based on Sheath’s model The CSAM Cycle, which combines theories about sexual abuse and sex addiction.
