I would like to thank the Churchill Trust for the wonderful opportunity they afforded me to further my knowledge, skills and experience in this complex field of work.

Thanks to Councillor Denise Williams, Margret Watson, and especially to Merritt Ilatt for his support and encouragement.

Special mention to the Staff and Management Committee of the Bundaberg Area Sexual Assault Service, Queensland, Australia, who enabled me to take the time I needed to complete this study.

Many people were generous with their time and knowledge overseas. Particular mention to Mark Dalton, Coventry NSPCC in the United Kingdom. Thanks to Gail Ryan, Director of the Perpetration Prevention Programme, Kempe Children’s Centre, Denver, United States of America, for sharing her original thinking, and also her wonderful food stories, symbolic of all she works towards. Thanks to Yvonne Cournoyer, Stop It Now! Minnesota, USA, for being so generous with her knowledge and helping me to take the risk. Special thanks to Janis Bremer, who welcomed me not only into Project Pathfinder, Minnesota, USA, but also into her beautiful home, sharing both with great humour.

Finally thanks to Ron, Michael and Kevan, who make everything worthwhile.
