Pedophilia: Mental Disorder Resulting In Child Sexual Abuse

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Pedophilia: Mental Disorder Resulting In Child Sexual Abuse

Pedophilia is an unnatural or abnormal attraction towards children of either or both sexes, usually aged thirteen years or younger. A pedophile's attraction towards adults varies. They fantasize and/or act on their fantasies with children who have not reached puberty. Pedophilia is one of the most common paraphilia (abnormal sexual desires). The DSM i. E. Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders has included pedophilia as a mental disorder.

Here are a few facts about the disorder:

1. Pedophilic disorder is when pedophiles approach children to sexually gratify themselves or if desires towards children make them feel guilty and anxious and so, they alienate themselves from the society and are unable to achieve their personal goals.

2. One very important fact that one must keep in mind is that not all pedophiles molest children and not all child molesters are pedophiles. When one desires children, they are pedophilic. But only when they act on their desires, and sexually assault children, they are child molesters.

3. Since most pedophiles do not come forward or admit to having sexual desires towards children, most of the studies have been conducted on the pedophilic child molesters. However, the number of pedophiles is vast considering that there are about 4 million websites in business catering to child pornography.

4. Opening up and seeking help from a psychologist or psychiatrist might help them in curbing and managing these desires and prevent them from acting on them and committing sexual offenses. In rare cases, pedophiles are also prescribed medications to lower their sex drive.

5. Male pedophiles are far more common than female ones.

6. Most of the child sex offenders are family and relatives.

7. Psychologists believe that children who are lonely and aloof, and feel neglected are at a higher risk of being sexually abused. The type of activities differs in each case, while some just undress and look at a child, others force the child to take part and perform oral sex and/or touch the genitals or more.

8. In most countries, it is mandatory to report a pedophile to the authorities even when there is no risk, which is why most pedophiles do not come forward and admit having this disorder. They refrain from seeking help.

However, there is a prevention project dunkelfeld in Germany that provides free of cost services to people who are attracted to children, but are dedicated to not to act on their desires and molest children. This program maintains its members' confidentiality. Such programs are essential for a healthy society.

These are all the withdrawal effects of heroine use. It will happen during the initial stages only and when you overcome that phase, you will no longer feel those symptoms. The body and the brain is feeling the absence of the substance and therefore reacts. If you meet with a doctor he will prescribe some medication to ease these symptoms and that will help you. Ideally, you should admit yourself into a rehabilitation home and get all the assistance, and you will be far away from sourcing the drugs too. You will need to stay for at least 6 months and follow that​ up with NA meetings for a long time along with some counseling too.

Dear lybrate-user, the duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Sir one of my best buddy have one bad habits he drink wine so can you give me solution how stop him to drink wine.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you think that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. His family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. His children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. If your buddy refuses to go for rehabilitation, then some centers have a method of picking him up when he is totally sloshed and is not able to fight back effectively. They will need the family’s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast.

You will need to ascertain whether it is depression or not when you say 'kind of feeling'. At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hi i am Confused between love and infatuation as now I am living in live in relationship and too many adjustments and responsibilities and it's not the same anymore. Wanna test myself if I actually love my guy. Or it was just attraction.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Love is when you care very strongly and very deeply about another person. When you love someone, you are there to support them, you work together to solve problems, you’re willing to stand by this person in good times and bad, and you wish nothing more than to watch and help this person grow. Infatuation (also referred to as “lust”) has a few great things going for it too. Infatuation gives you goosebumps. It puts that silly smile on your face that you can't seem to shake. It fills your mind with wonderful daydreams. And, of course, many love relationships start out as infatuation. It all sounds so wonderful that we may not see the problem when infatuation is mistaken for love. But it's a big problem, and that's why it’s so important to understand the differences between love and infatuation. Here they are: Love develops gradually over time. Infatuation occurs almost instantaneously. Love can last a long time. It becomes deeper and more powerful over time. Infatuation is powerful, but short-lived. Love accepts the whole person, imperfections and all. Infatuation flourishes on perfection – you have an idealized image of your partner and you only show your partner your good side. Love is more than physical attraction. Infatuation focuses on the physical. Love is energizing. Infatuation is draining. Love improves your overall disposition. Infatuation brings out jealousy and obsessiveness. It causes you to neglect other relationships. Loves survives arguments. Infatuation glosses over arguments. Love considers the other person. Infatuation is selfish. Love is being in love with a person. Infatuation is being in love with love.

Relationships should be built by trust, if you are not able to trust your partner and are in a constant insecurity the relationship will not grow. You need to understand from where this insecurity is coming to you, you need to get yourself evaluated so that a proper understanding of your insecurity can be got and adequate advice can be given

I got married in the year 1998, from beginning I don't know it may be a curse to me that my thinking/like/dislike etc. Is nothing matching with my wife, as a result I never felt easy in my married life and there is always a conflict between us.Gradually it become a irritation of my life, thus though I am married I feel always alone which makes me sleepless night almost everyday. Hardly I can sleep 2-3 hours at night and day long I am always busy with my office activities. Sometime I feel tremendous headache and sometime for giddiness I can not work properly. So if you kindly give me your valuable suggestion I will be grateful to you. Thanking you.

These differences are coming up because you two are not compatible. The more similarity in compatibility factors, the better the relationship. However, when compatibility is poor, good adjustability is needed. This is where you and your wife must find and know the many ways you can adjust to live with each other. If one or the both of you do not make these adjustments, the relationship will be under threat. Since both of you have been staying together for so long in spite of this, there is some hope to work on it. You must talk to her and find out what she is finding difficult to cope with you and what does she want you to do to reciprocate. You on the other hand need to list out the difficulties you have with her, and expect her to change or adjust. I know you do not marry a person to change them, but expressing what it is that the other person can do for you, is okay for the betterment of the relationship. Do not expect her to read your mind nor for you to even try to do so with hers. It is communication that will work out solutions to your advantage and for the peace. Yet, not only peace, you need to live happily.

HI Mr. lybrate-user, I want you to practice JPMR. Jacobson’s relaxation technique, also known as progressive relaxation therapy, is a type of therapy that focuses on tightening and relaxing specific muscle groups in sequence. By concentrating on specific areas and tensing and then relaxing them, you can become more aware of your body and physical sensations. Professionals who use this technique often combine it with breathing exercises or mental imagery. A guide may talk you through the process, starting at the head or feet and working through the body. Practicing relaxation techniques can have a variety of health benefits. It can relieve anxiety, lower your blood pressure, reduce the likelihood of seizures, and improve your sleep. Research shows a connection between relaxation and blood pressure, perhaps because stress is a contributing factor to high blood pressure. There is also some evidence that Jacobson’s relaxation technique can effectively help people with epilepsy reduce the amount and frequency of seizures. Jacobson’s relaxation technique is commonly used to help people with insomnia as well. Several studies have looked at whether or not it’s effective. Some have had mixed results, while others show promise. In some cases people who didn’t get more sleep still felt better rested after relaxation therapy. Whole-Body Technique Feet Bring your attention to your feet. Point your feet downward, and curl your toes under. Tighten your toe muscles gently, but don’t strain. Notice the tension for a few moments, then release, and notice the relaxation. Repeat. Become aware of the difference between the muscles when they’re tensed and relaxed. Continue to tense and relax the leg muscles from the foot to the abdominal area. Abdomen Gently tighten the muscles of your abdomen, but don’t strain. Notice the tension for a few moments. Then release, and notice the relaxation. Repeat. Become aware of the difference between the tensed muscles and the relaxed muscles. Shoulders and Neck Very gently shrug your shoulders straight up towards your ears. Don’t strain. Feel the tension for a few moments, release, and then feel the relaxation. Repeat. Notice the difference between the tensed muscles and the relaxed muscles. Focus on the neck muscles, first tensing and then relaxing until you feel total relaxation in this area. Here is the three-step process Close your hands tightly to feel the tension. Hold for 5 seconds, and slowly allow the fingers to release one by one until they’re completely relaxed. Press your lips tightly together and hold for 5 seconds, feeling the tension. Slowly release. The lips should be completely relaxed and barely touching after the release. Finally, press your tongue against the roof of your mouth for 5 seconds, and notice the tension. Slowly relax the tongue until it’s sitting on the floor of the mouth and your jaws are slightly unclenched. Do it two times a day. Consult for same.

Dear ns, liking girs or not liking is linked with your experience. When we are born, our mind was like a clean slate. Circumstances and our experience started writing on that slate and those writings became our rules. In this case too, you dislike girls because of your past experience and perception. We need to change that. Better option is to get marrieage. Rational emotive therapy and cognitive restructuring should help you. Post a private question to me with every details and I will help you with this problem. Take care.

When you sit down to study. Keep a target. That you should finish this much in this time. And don't get up before you finish it. Studying with a friend helps. Also put your leg in a bucket of cold water when you study. That helps in keeping you awake.

You seem to be stressed. You mentioned that there is some marital problems going on since past few months, it's likely that you are disturbed by them and your energy is low. Don't ignore these issues, instead be proactive to resolve them. Be open to seek help if things don't get sorted out between you too. I will suggest you go for couple counselling with your spouse to understand and sort out the differences. The earlier you tackle them, the lesser the heartache later. All the best!
