Abstract

[Help-seeking behaviour in minor-attracted persons (MAP) has received only little attention in the literature and in practice. Recent research however shows that numerous offending and non-offending MAP experience the need to seek help, and a subgroup dares to seek help from formal and informal sources. But their quest for adequate help is anything but easy: MAP are confronted with various obstacles that prohibit them from acting upon a voluntary need for help. The current chapter takes stock of current theoretical and empirical knowledge on help-seeking behaviour in general and in MAP. We will also explore how to further empirical research of this process and how to overcome common obstacles in the current mental health field to facilitate help-seeking behaviour in MAP.]
