Denial in sex offenders
Denial - and related ideas of minimisation and rationalisation - is commonly encountered in men with sexual convictions.

Yet are we perpetuating a myth for which there is no longer substantial evidence?
This 25 minute presentation tells you everything you need to know - in a highly accessible style - about denial in sex offenders, and whether we need to worry about it in relation to risk assessment and management.
