Dr Ross Bartels (and colleagues Dr Robert Lehmann & Dr David Thornton) have published a paper in the open-access journal Frontiers in Psychiatry (Forensic Psychiatry).

The paper is entitled ‘Validating the utility of the Wilson Sex Fantasy Questionnaire with men who have sexually offended against children‘. It examines whether one of the oldest self-report sexual fantasy measures is valid and useful for use with men who have sexually offended against children, as well as men who report some level of sexual interest in children but have not offended. The study highlights some strengths and limitations that are useful for forensic clinicians and researchers to consider.
