Abstract

[The large numbers of victims and the extensive harmful effects of child sexual abuse (CSA) necessitate dedicated attention towards prevention efforts. Since such abuse harms all layers of society, its prevention needs to be approached as a public health problem. Smallbone et al. (Preventing child sexual abuse: Evidence, policy and practice. Willan Publishing, 2008) developed a specific framework for the prevention of CSA. This framework focuses on prevention from the (potential) victim, (potential) perpetrator, and situational perspectives and from the perspective of community. In this chapter, we discuss the prevention of CSA specifically from the perspective of the (potential) perpetrator by providing insight into international prevention initiatives that have been taken by the Stop it Now! helplines. By means of the framework, we discuss what’s needed for effective offender-oriented prevention according to Stop it Now!.]
