In Sexual Aggression Against Children: Pedophiles' and Abusers' Development, Dynamics, Treatability, and the Law, Drs. Blackman and Dring use multiple psychoanalytic principles to answer, "Why do people sexually abuse children?" and "Why are most abusers male"?

They address the legal and mental health professions' minimization of the horrific nature of child sexual abuse, explain how to assess pedophiles' treatability, and discuss cases of adolescent and adult predators. Also, developmental analysis of sexual predation is integrated with a review of judicial decisions regarding civil commitment and punishment of abusers.

The authors suggest how courts, evaluators, and legislatures can preserve constitutional rights of sexual offenders while prioritizing protection of children.
