Serial abusers are the type of abusers that go from one victim to the other. A serial abuser can be a pedophile (childhood sex abuser), a serial rapist, a workplace sexual harassment, or a sex trafficker. The motivation behind the abuse mostly stems from sex and power, and the offender often has a pattern of victims that they entrap with focus and premeditation.
Serial abusers often develop a double life, making sure that their public life remains exemplary while they cultivate techniques to abuse their next victim in their private life. They are inclined and motivated to act normally and often hold status in their communities. This makes their victims timid of their reaction if they reported the case and whether their community would believe them.
