Banished is dedicated to sex offender research, and its issues regarding society, mental health, and the law equally. It focuses on this problem in cultural, legal and scientific terms, specifically from the clinical point-of-view, though it is written for the general public. It offers an up-to-date and all-inclusive look into the mind and habits of the pedophile and child molester. This book offers current research into one of the most controversial subjects in society to date, discussing topics of mental illness and various psychological disorders, the law and how this problem is legally dealt with. It focuses on this problem in cultural, legal and scientific terms that are readily comprehensible, both from the clinical standpoint and the layman’s point-of-view. The book offers a detailed review of the sex offender; the pedophile and the child molester, and directly explores his thinking processes, reasoning and related issues that offer a clear and concise exposé in these most hated people. In addition to covering the adult offender, this work also exemplifies the thought processes of child and adolescent offenders in order to offer cues for parents and educators of possible abuse or illicit behavior. Through direct examples of client art, case histories and offender testimonies, the book’s purpose will surely educate, as well as in purposing methods for positive change in the process. The research and findings are based on a journalistic foundation, as well as from an experiential point-of-view, where the author had worked with and had interviewed the subjects exemplified in the case studies section directly. One could view this book as a documentary in text form to that of a simple scientific assessment or exposé. Some examples; such as statistical data and related state and government laws, national and international legal information, as well as properly devised case study examples are utilized to help illustrate the intent of the book’s overall purpose. Moreover, because there are sections regarding internet deviancy and its major influence on the human psyche, and that these sections offer raw information, the reader should be aware of the content and the reasoning for using it. It is done so to educate and to hopefully illustrate the realities of this global problem. In addition to a selection of thoroughly researched interviews with said offenders, in the form of case studies reminiscent to the current style of the American Psychological Association (APA) formats, I also highlight a selection of documented artwork, specifically by children and young adults while working as a therapist in various hospitals. This section may serve as an alert for parents and educators for possible cues of sexual abuse in or outside of the home, but such will also illustrate the sheer potency sexual abuse can cause upon its victims, and how it will be viewed from their unconscious psyche and conscious viewpoints.
