Sexual Abuse by Men Who Work with Children
Colton, Matthew; Roberts, Susan; Vanstone, Maurice
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v19 n3 p345-364 2010
There is a dearth of knowledge about those who sexually abuse children while working in organizations. Here, we adopt a case study approach to examine this problem. We focus on eight adult males who had been imprisoned for abusing a total of 35 children while working in educational and voluntary settings. We provide a detailed account of abusers' characteristics, their strategies, how victims were selected, how trust was secured, and how victims' silence was ensured. Finally, we reflect on the extent to which our work might contribute toward the prevention of this form of abuse. (Contains 2 notes, 2 tables, and 1 figure.)
