Abstract

[This chapter deals with the ways in which men convicted of sexual offences narrate their desistance, how this narrative is linked to temporal perceptions of the self and the role these self-perceptions play in agentic action. We highlight the difficulties faced by these men, in terms of limited structural opportunities and available cultural scripts, in their efforts of constructing an identity supportive of desistance and discuss how treatment providers and other professionals can help to overcome these hurdles with the goal of preventing future transgressions.]
