4 days ago
Content Warning: This episode includes discussion of paraphilic disorders (e.g., pedophilia), sexual abuse, and sexual harassment.
We invited clinical psychologist, Dr. Leonardo Bobadilla, to talk to us about his expertise in the assessment and treatment of individuals who have been accused of sexual violence. The episode included an overview of the biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors related to paraphilic disorders. We also discussed the state of the research on effective prevention and treatment for individuals who have committed acts of sexual violence. We concluded with Dr. Bobadilla’s thoughts on the courage it takes to report sexual abuse and harassment, as we’ve recently witnessed through the #MeToo movement.
For more in-depth information on the treatment and prevention of sexual abuse, please visit the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers website or the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists website. Resources for individuals who have survived sexual abuse are available at the Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network.
