Juliet Grayson, Chair of StopSO, gives an interview to Radio Ireland – programme Today with Sean O’Rourke about Paedophilia. The definition of paedophilia is a sexual attraction to children under the age of 12. Paedophilia was and is regarded as a psychiatric disorder, but nowadays researchers and psychiatrists distinguish between paedophiles who don’t act on their fantasies and those who do. The latest approaches to treating paedophiles emphasize preventive therapy, encouraging potential offenders to come forward. One of the most innovative is Germany’s Dunkelfeld project. Berlin-based BBC journalist Damien McGuiness joined Keelin Shanley to discuss Dunkelfeld and also joining Keeling was psychotherapist Juliet Grayson, the co-founder of STOPSO, the Specialist Treatment Organisation of the Prevention of Sexual Offending in the UK.

Date July 18th 2015
Juliet Grayson, Chair of StopSO gives an interview to Radio 4’s programme IPM which includes the issue of the proposed mandatory reporting, suggesting that therapists should be excluded from mandatory reporting, as a child protection issue. She says it is important to ensure that paedophiles and people (e.g. non offending paedophiles) who are concerned about sexual thoughts about children, feel that they can seek counselling to help them manage their urges, so that they avoid acting out. Juliet Grayson states this is a crime prevention issue. ‘If I report too readily the risk is that they’re not going to come to therapy.’ To report or not to report? A listener’s dilemma when counselling paedophiles. Presented by Jennifer Tracey on 18 July 2015 Click here to listen 12 minutes
