Abstract

Sexual offending against children has been an issue of major public and scientific concern over the last 50 years, and strategies and methods for managing risk and treating such offenders have gradually been developed and utilised across the world . Whilst there has been a marked and consistent decline in child sexual abuse over the last 20 years, the production and online accessing of Child Sexual Exploitation Material (CSEM) – in visual and written form – has dramatically increased in parallel with the growth and accessibility of the Internet (e.g. Kloess, Beech, & Harkins, 2014). Further worrying developments include children being abused live online and the online grooming of children for contact sexual abuse.
