Originally broadcast on the CBC program, the Nature of things.


Most children are abused by people they know, people they trust and love. The Nature of Things takes an in-depth look at the crime, its victims, its perpetrators and its prevention. The program asks why we deny the problem, demonize the offender and discredit the victim, and why the media is paying more attention to the "False Memory Syndrome" than to the chilling reality of the sexual exploitation of children. Interviews with survivors reveal the deep emotional scars left by their abuse and the painful road to recovery afterwards. Psychiatrists discuss the symptoms and consequences of trauma. Offenders describe how they "groomed" their victims for abuse and rationalized their actions, while a criminal psychologist explains the urgent need for treatment of sex offenders. Easy Targets asks how we as a society must change if this crime is ever to be eliminated.
