Example text

This is not to say that front line practitioners and managers in public organisations do not have some room for manoeuvre or discretion in interpreting policy and law, processes that have been analysed by various commentators over time (from Lipsky 1980 to Evans and Harris 2004). Indeed, the history of the development of services for children and young people who have sexually abused others or who display sexually harmful behaviours is the history of certain committed individuals and agencies at the local level working to create coherent, child-centred and effective systems of response to children and young people who have sexually abused others, despite continuing changes in philosophy, a lack of clear direction at government department levels and limited resources.

They have worked with some 100 young children whom they divided into two treatment groups (7–9 years and 10–12 years). The majority of these children were male and two-thirds were white. Nearly half of the children were living at home at the point of referral and over two-thirds had a history of sexual, physical or emotional victimisation or abandonment experiences. Onethird exhibited psychiatric, learning or medical problems and about a quarter had been involved in what would be considered other delinquent activity if they were older.

Finally stigmatisation resulting from abuse can further corrode the self-image and generate a sense of isolation which increases the effect of the other factors. However, being abused is far from being a predictive factor in becoming abusive. Other issues, therefore, also appear to be significant. Back in 1988 Becker proposed a model that is still seen as very relevant today, a model which includes a broad range of factors which may contribute to the development of sexually abusive behaviour: at an individual level, social isolation; impulse conduct disorder; limited cognitive abilities; and a history of physical and/or sexual abuse; familial factors: carers who engage in coercive sexual behaviour; family belief systems supportive of such behaviour; and carers who have poor interpersonal skills and lack empathy; and societal factors: society which is supportive of coercive (male) sexual behaviour; society which supports the sexualisation of children; and peer groups who behave in anti-social ways.
