The latest volume in the Forensic Psychotherapy Series discusses one of the most controversial, taboo, and misunderstood subjects in the psychoanalytic arena today - pedophilia. A variety of treatments and therapies, including brain surgery, electric shock treatment and incarceration, have not succeeded in treating this condition. In this volume, a range of eminent and expert professionals go further: into the mind of the pedophile, using dream interpretation, free association, fantasies and memories, in a bid to comprehend the exact nature; the how, when and why, of pedophilia.
