Manage episode 296212218 series 2897169
In this episode I provide an introductory 101 on child sex offenders. I talk about different types of offender, their journey to live abuse and I explain how grooming works. Finally I talk about the impact of the Internet on offending. You should probably listen to this episode before the next two episodes where I interview some of those who have investigated or managed paedophiles over many years.
Listener caution is advised.
