I dont think a rapist needs more psychotherapie than say a bankrobber, both took something they wanted with voilance, thats pretty close regarding the mindset. Of course the rapist commited a more cruel crime, but some serial killer commited very cruel crimes too and do not get psychotherapy.Smeatza said:Interesting paper. I could have done with more detail.
You might find this interesting.
It supports what you posted but still acknowledges that rape can come from sexual deviancy.
Rapists should still be given psychotherapy. Mental illness or no, there are issues there.
Psychotherapy is only really useful if you want to reintroduce someone into society, I for one dont think thats a good idea if that someone basically tortured a helpless human being to get what they wanted from them.
Could you back this up by some statistics? I would be very interested if there is actually a correlation between education and rape, or is that more of a personal assumption?Smeatza said:The problem that this presents is that the majority of rapists come from working class backgrounds, and don't have a high school education in the first place. So the only place left to turn is the parents, and if that's a dud.......
