Homicide: The Hidden Victims: A Resource for Professionals

price: $63.50 (may be subject to change)
296 pages
Not in stock - available within 4 weeks.

The author of this groundbreaking volume is not only a social scientist and victim advocate - she is also the mother of a murder victim. Deborah Spungen illustrates how and why family members become co-victims when a loved one is murdered, and she poignantly addresses the emotional, physical, spiritual and psychological effects of such traumatic events. These `invisible victims' often find their wounds compounded by confusion and a sense of aloneness in the aftermath of such a tragic event.

The author draws on research, personal insight and case examples to illuminate critical issues that surround: family notification of a loved one's murder; effects of murder on family and friends of the victim; media influences; traumatic grief; circumstantial influences; the criminal justice system; and reconstruction and healing. The book will be invaluable for mental health practitioners and victim advocates.
