Working with Minor Attracted Persons (MAPs)
Description: Through lecture, case stories, group discussions, and an audio segment, participants will be challenged to explore their feelings and reactions to pedophilia and pedophiles, and more specifically, to Minor-Attracted Persons (MAPs) who have not acted on their attraction, do not wish to act on their attraction, and need professional help. If MAPs could get the help they need, much of the sexual abuse of children may be prevented. Therapeutic issues and treatment approaches for MAPs will be discussed.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: explain what prevents Minors Attracted Persons (MAPs) from seeking professional help; discuss treatment approaches for MAPs.
