Violence of all kinds — from child abuse and domestic violence to hate crimes, elder abuse and stalking — seems to be increasing. Contemporary counselors need to be able to treat many types of victims. They need to understand what the issues are, how to proceed with intervention and how to implement short and long-term counseling plans. They also face the complication that most victims do not simply fall into one category of victimization.

Each chapter of Counseling Victims of Violence offers practical guidance on a specific type of violence victimization, what issues must be addressed during crisis intervention, secondary victimizations and social services resources needed. A special feature is the quick-glance reference charts that outline the basics and summarize each chapter’s contents. Chapters cover:

Psychodynamics of Trauma
Stalking and Cyberstalking
Property Crime and Robbery
Hate Crimes: elder abuse — hate/ethnic/racial violence — gender based assaults — disease based assaults — spiritual affiliation-based assaults
Domestic Violence
Violence Against Children
Sexual Trauma
Societal Trauma (terrorism, other forms of uncontrolled terror)
