For decades, most responses to treating victims of violent crime adopted a ictim-blaming approach. Only recently has treatment become more victim-centered, but no theoretical foundations had been applied to this newer premise. Diane Green and Albert Roberts have changed that. With helping Victims of Violent crime, they have fashioned a seminal work that not only grounds victim assistant treatment in a victim-centered and strengths-based perspective, but also does so through systems theory-a holistic notion of examining a person in his or her environment. This book mphasizes the practical assessment and intervention strategies with victims of violence and contains the key following features: Step-by-step assessment of crime victims and treatment methods integrated into each chapter. Descriptions and explanations of victimization concepts using realistic examples to help understand the application of such theories in practice. Specific assessment and evidence-based treatments for sexual viloence, partner violence, school violence, homicide, and other types of violent crimes.
