The Mind of the Paedophile discusses one of the most controversial and misunderstood subjects in the psychoanalytic arena today - paedophilia. 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 paedophile, using dream interpretation, free association, fantasies and memories, in a bid to comprehend the exact nature; the how, when and why, of paedophilia.

Wilfred Abse; William F. Greer; Daniel P. Juda; Brett Kahr; Loretta R. Loeb; Charles W. Socarides; and Vamik D. Volkan.

Reviews and Endorsements

'This book constitutes the first major textbook on the paedophilias, and we trust that it will be a spur to others to analyse paedophile perverts as well as to tenderly care for the wounds of the child victims who are described within its pages.'
- From the Preface
