Abstract

This paper briefly reviews the concepts of pedophilia and sexual interests and then describes evidence indicating that it is possible to effectively treat pedophiles. Evidence indicates that the sexual interests of pedophiles in children can be effectively replaced by a stronger sexual interest in adults. The studies reported in this paper also reveal that treating pedophiles, as well as other nonpedophilic child molesters, markedly reduces their propensity to abuse children.
