dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this article is to review the theoretical, empirical, and practical implications related to the modus operandi of sexual offenders against children. First, the rational choice perspective in criminology is presented. Second, descriptive studies aimed specifically at providing information on modus operandi of sexual offenders against children are also presented. This is followed by research that investigates the links between the modus operandi of sexual offenders against children and various factors such as victim characteristics. Third, offenders' treatment, as well as situational crime prevention implications in regards to modus operandi, is discussed in order to highlight their respective potential for the prevention of child sexual abuse.en_US
