Purvis, Mayumi; Ward, Tony; Devilly, Grant G.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v11 n4 p101-23 2002
Examines gender differences in community corrections officers' (CCOs') attributions for child sexual offending. Results found that CCOs' reasons regarding why men sexually abuse children strongly paralleled current scientific theories on the etiology of child sexual abuse. Also, significant gender differences were found regarding the frequency with which participants cited certain types of reasons for child sexual abuse. (Contains 38 references and 2 tables.) (GCP)
