SETUBAL, Cassio Bravin; WOLF, Lana dos Santos  y  COSTA, Liana Fortunato. Risk thoughts of an adult perpetrator of sexual violence. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2020, vol.12, n.2, pp. 105-122. ISSN 2177-093X.

This is a qualitative research (documentary analysis) on the risk thoughts (sexual fantasies) of an adult sexual offender (55 years old, who served a restrictive sentence of freedom) attended in a public health institution. We sought, through documentary research, to know the development of sexual fantasies concerning the behavior of sexual harassment. The context was in a health institution, and the focus was the harassment of three female victims (eight, nine and 10 years old). The information was collected in an interview that lasted two hours. Information about the thoughts/fantasies that came up in the face of a possible sexual assault on a child and/or adolescent was carried out. The discussion dealt with: risk thinking; the victim's reactions; and the process of justification for violent action. Knowledge of risk thoughts should be part of any intervention with this population of adult sexual offenders and be seen as part of the protective circuit of children and adolescents.

Palabras clave : sexual assault; child abuse; sexual abuse; fantasy.
