Rape is an increasingly serious social problem; the causes of which are poorly understood and preventative measures are, to date, ineffective. This book provides the reader with theory and research on rapists including adolescents, college students and criminals. Chapters discuss biological, psychological and social causes of rape and investigate recently developed clinical methods which provide hope for decreasing and preventing rape. Whilst the empowerment of victims and potential victims of sexual aggression is critically important, there is no other type of aggressive sexual act in which the victim is so routinely blamed. This volume serves to shift the emphasis away from victim responsibility and so assist in the understanding, treatment and prevention of sexually active behaviour. lt provides a broad insight into family, cultural and evolutionary influences affecting rapists and details comprehensive approaches to treatment which take in motivational variables and allow for follow up.
