What is Pedophilic Disorder? Symptoms, Ayurvedic Treatment


Before starting with article and the information we are going to share in this article, let’s start with a quote  “The abuser’s desire to abuse is not created by the child– it is there before the child appears” This quote is to all the people who usually shuts their children mouth when something unjustified happens to them. You might be thinking about what exactly this article is about. So disclosing the suspense, the article explains pedophlic disorder which is a type of disorder which is characterised by recurring, intense sexually arousing fantasies, urges, or behaviour involving children usually of 13 years or younger. All we need is that everyone should understand what is this disorder, how you can point out a pedophilic person, how you can protect your children and what help Ayurveda can bring to a pedophilic person, if he or she actually wants to fight their urges.

Pedophilic disorder


Pedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or an older adolescent experinces a primary or exclusive sextual attraction to prepuberscent children. A criteria suggests that a person must be at least 16 years old and at least five years older than the prepubescent child, for the attraction to be diagnosed as pedophilia. The pedophilia has got its first formal recognisition and was named in late19th century. Not only men but there are also women who are being documented to have this disorder. Till now there are no actual cures that can be done or given to reduce the incidence of a person committing child sextual abuse but there are certain therapies that can definitely help. Some studies also show that pedophilia in child sex offenders is perfectly correlated with neurological anomalies and psychological abnormalities. Particularly the pedophilic disorder can be subjected to involuntary commitment. The word pedophilia comes from the greek word pedo that is child and phillia is friendly love or friendship.

Sign and symptoms of Pedophilic Disorder

Whenever we talk about pedophilia, then it is a disorder that emerges during puberty and stables over time.  The condition is self- discovery not chosen. For this reason only the pedophilia is a disorder of sextual preference. Moreover, the disorder can be exclusive or non exclusive or limited to incest.

  1. Exclusive pedophilic disorder: The sexual attraction is only towards children
  2. Non exclusive pedophilic disorder: The sexual attraction is towards children and adults too.
  3.  Limited to incest: When an individual is only attracted to either males, females or both.

Generally, such patients are to be observed. The only sign and symptoms that pertains is the attraction towards preadolescents. In this case two types of people are observed, one who feels guilty about their thoughts and yes are scared of what will happen because of them. Such people resolutely oppose acting on such thoughts but still have children as their primary or only object for fantasising.

But there are groups of people who can respond much differently to these thoughts. It can challenge their whole belief of what they are.

So, all you can do is observe and observe deeply. If you are pedophilic and reading this article then you might need help but if you are someone with children then you have to keep your eyes really open and must be really observant.

Causes of pedophilic Disorder

If we are going to discuss the causes of this condition there are certain things which should be genuinely clear to the people reading things. In some cases, the pedophilia may run in families, but yet it is unclear that the disorders stems from the genetics or is a learned behaviour. Generally the childhood sexual abuse is another factor that can result in development of pedophilic behaviour. Causes, in such conditions are not well defined it can develop because of anything even can be the sub symptom of some other ongoing psychological condition. So you never know what another person is actually experiencing or feeling or what’s going on in their minds.

Diagnosing pedophilic Disorder

Viewing child pronography should not be considered as a useful diagnostic character but DSM-5 describes that “extensive use of pronography depicting prepubescent children is a useful diagnostic feature”.  The disorder is generally diagnosed when the person has an attempt to sexually offend a child or is having recurrent thoughts to do that. Moreover, in the diagnosis of this pedophilia there are certain questions which are to answered by the patient like

  1. Frequency or intensity of urges they usually feel
  2. Attraction is towards the opposite sex or the same sex.
  3. Did they face any type of abuse in the past?
  4. Have they ever abused a child or tried to abuse a child?
  5. Are they struggling from denial of thoughts and actions?

These are the type of questions, which generally help in the diagnosis of pedophilic disorder.

Sometimes these patients are challenged by their own will and in the core of their mind they do know that whatever their thoughts are, they are against human rights, these thoughts are antisocial and usually it compels them to keep their mouth shut.

Treatment of pedophilic Disorder

Generally certain therapies are given along with some medications to suppress sexual urges. But no particular cure is there.obviously one has to fight negative thought processes and should try to push oneself in the positive direction.

What can parents do?

Parents with children younger than 13 or even older than 13 years of age must be observant to their children’s behaviour. If your child is an abuser, you may notice things which are really odd with him or her or if he or she is a victim they usually become anti-social and talk back less. They are happy to be left alone. These Are some certain things which parents should be  able to understand as they are parents and no one knows their children better than them. Even if your child opens up to you and says that he or she is having those thoughts abouts children, don’t turn them down instead help them. Sometimes paedophiles are not criminals, they are victims too.

No doubt the pedophilia can work in two ways. Either the pedophilic can be the bad guy or he or she can be the victim. It all depends on the situation. But there is one more possibility that a paedophile is both the bad guy and the victim. So, now it depends on parents how they protect their children and it depends on the person with this disorder to what extent he or she can stretch their denial which can prevent them from committing any crime or wrongdoing.
