Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

Experts estimate there are at least four million child sexual abusers in the United States, and they do not fit stereotypes. Almost half of those guilty of incest also molest children outside the family. Many also commit adult rape, and they come from every social background. This program examines a controversial Seattle, Washington program aimed at treating child sexual abusers.
