Abstract

Very limited research has looked at the use of cognitive behavioural therapy on paraphilic infantilism. Two case descriptions of paraphilic infantilism coexisting with substance use disorders and anxiety and/or a mood disorder are discussed. Both cases presented with a history of childhood physical and sexual abuse. One of the cases also reported engaging in transvestism during periods of stimulant abuse and paraphilic infantilism during substance misuse stabilisation or opiate intoxication. The application of cognitive behavioural techniques revealed that both cases' paraphilic conduct was associated with their substance misuse and whilst they attended a drug maintenance programme, they did not wish to pursue any treatment intervention regarding their paraphilic behaviours. Both case descriptions of paraphilic behaviour are discussed in the context of substance misuse, mental health and the triggers associated with relapse.
