This chapter will focus on what we know about sexual offending and desistence from sexual crime. It will contain a summary of sexual offending from a psychologist’s point of view. Both historical psychological studies and more recent developments of thinking in this area will be explored, including seminal theories of sexual offending and desistance. These are explored in relation to Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA), and how CoSA can assist in desistance from crime where prison rehabilitation falls short. Recent research findings will be incorporated and implications for treatment and promoting desistance from crime will be explored.
