Description

John Dicke is a child psychologist who specializes in treating sexually abused children. So how did he become embroiled in charges of sex abuse himself? The charges came because of his controversial new treatment technique that uses dildos to help sex abuse victims to open up by giving them control over something associated with the abuse itself. Some parents of the children agreed that his methods worked but social workers did not. No criminal charges were brought but Dicke was prohibited from using sex toys in therapy.
