Abstract

[Paraphilic interests are a cornerstone of forensic assessment. Self-reports of sexual inclinations are fraught with limitations when working with individuals who face extensive personal ramifications from the justice system. A brief overview of indirect measures of pedohebephilic interest as diagnostic adjunct is given focusing on Viewing Time measures and Implicit Association Tests. Introducing the Explicit and Implicit Sexual Interest Profile, we outline the diagnostic potential of combining conceptually different measures into a test battery. We underscore the importance of measurement reliability for applied diagnostic decisions at the individual level. Underlying psychological processes of Viewing Time measures and their relation to fakeability are explained. Summarizing the state of the art, we conclude with open questions and venues for future research that are relevant to applied forensic contexts.]
