When planning the ReDirection project, we decided to inquire into the largest darknet communities of child sexual abusers and examine their members’ attempts to refrain from sexual violence against children and their support for each other in such endeavour. Accordingly, this report consists of a qualitative and quantitative analysis of chat room discussions of those who have a sexual interest in children and those who search for, use, and distribute child sexual abuse material (CSAM). The aim is (i) to provide information for those who work with potential sexual offenders or with CSAM users and (ii) to improve the ReDirection Self-Help Program by considering aspects that may not surface in questionnaires or other forms of research.
