    Abstract

    As part of the government's 'rehabilitation revolution' (Ministry of Justice, 2014) the priority on discovering both 'what works' and 'who works' with offenders could not be higher. With the number of men found guilty for rape and sexual offences against a child nearly doubling in the past seven years alone, the need to understand and sufficiently explain this sexual offending behaviour could not be more pertinent. This dissertation investigates the extent to which professionals in two English probation areas, known under the fictional names of Peterford and Stockhampton, view early attachment experiences as an important role in both explaining and treating adult male sexual offenders.
