Young people who have sexually abused : what do they (and their parents) want from professionals ?

Hackett, S. and Masson, H. (2006) 'Young people who have sexually abused : what do they (and their parents) want from professionals ?', Children & society., 20 (3). pp. 183-195.

Abstract

This article presents the findings of a small scale qualitative study of user perspectives in the adolescent sexual aggression field. Twenty four service users who had received intervention from nine different specialist providers completed a structured questionnaire about their experiences of professional involvement. Both young people who had sexually abused and parents identified the kinds of professional intervention which they found useful, as well as practices that they experienced as unhelpful. Young people and their families alike were found to value supportive interventions which gave them an opportunity to gain insight into the nature of sexual abuse as well to address their own feelings about their problems.
