 Abstract: Background: Child sexual molestation has become an increasingly debated topic during the last couple of years. There seems to be a widespread concern in the society for this type of crime. The debate has led to increased regulations and guidelines for working with children. Generally, in society, persons who commit acts of child sexual molestation, are considered to be paedophilias and having a mental disease. Hence, there seems to be a need for increased and more justified knowledge about the man behind these sexual abusive acts.
Theories and models have been presented in attempts to account for the reasons and the psychological factors of the perpetrator behind the act of child sexual molestation, yet all with individual shortcomings.

Aim: The aim of this master thesis is to present relevant research and literature concerning what is already considered to be characteristic of child molesters. This process leads to the presentation of an integrative model that is able to unite the field and give an understanding of the child molester and the psychological factors involved in the process from birth to the offence and the immediate reactions afterwards made by the perpetrator.

Method: A critical review of the empirical research and literature concerning child molesters.

Conclusion: This master thesis presents a model containing relevant psychological factors involved in the understanding of the man behind the child sexual molestation acts. The model is construed on the basis of a critical review of empirical research and literature concerning child molesters. This review has revealed shortcomings in the research field. Suggestions as how to respond to these shortcomings are thus presented.
