Discoveries made in the course of Gene G. Abel, M.D. and Abel Screening research have changed the ways mental health professionals and corrections personnel think about men, women, and adolescents with sexual behavior problems and the children they have victimized.

 

Some of these discoveries include:
    Men who have sex with children are nearly always commi
tting additional sex crimes.
    Men who have sex with children usually start that behavior before they are 18 years old.
    Men who have sex with children usually have victimized 3 children before they are 18 years old.
    Men who have sex with their own children may also be having sex with other children in the community.
   Boys who are victims of sexual abuse are at higher risk to develop sexual interest in younger children and to become child sexual abusers.
