Authors > Fedoroff, J Paul

Dr. Paul Fedoroff has been the Director of the Sexual Behaviours Clinic (SBC) at The Royal (formerly the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre) since 2001. He has provided psychiatric consultations locally, nationally, and internationally, and his primary interests involve the assessment and treatment of people with problematic sexual interests and behaviours.

Dr. Fedoroff was the first Director of the Forensic Research Unit at The Royal’s Institute of Mental Health Research. He has published over 100 papers and chapters, and his publications support the idea that problematic sexual behaviours are not only treatable, but can actually be prevented.

Dr. Fedoroff’s approach to treating problematic sexual interests and behaviours is described in detail in his recent book, The Paraphilias: Changing Suits in the Evolution of Sexual Interest Paradigms.

Of the thousands of papers and books about problematic sexual behaviors, most focus solely on sex crimes or so-called "hyper-sexuality" or "sexual addiction." Together, these publications present a grim and pessimistic prognosis for anyone who has unusual sexual interests of any type. This
book challenges that view by providing a more informed and balanced review of what is known and what is not known about unconventional sexual interests. It is based on approximately thirty years of experience by the author concerning the assessment and treatment of paraphilias and unconventional
sexual interests.

The Paraphilias: Changing Suits in the Evolution of Sexual Interest Paradigms examines current and past perspectives concerning unconventional sexual interests associated with both criminal and non-criminal activities. Extensively referenced, it challenges the dogma that sexual interests are
immutably determined during a single critical period and are thereafter unchangeable. The book provides extensive case histories and tables summarizing over 100 paraphilias and the latest research regarding them. It also reviews diagnostic criteria for the paraphilias. Analyses of current and past
paradigms are presented together with new ways to understand, investigate, and provide meaningful and effective assistance to people with paraphilias. It is written for mental health clinicians and specialists in the fields of sexology and forensic psychiatry and psychology.
