Victim Awareness

Course Number: PSYC 086
Credits: 3
Hours per Quarter: 30

Lecture Hours:30


Description
Crime leaves the lives of its victims and co-victims shattered, confused and often threatened. Victimization is costly, not only in terms of the financial losses incurred, but also in terms of psychological and emotional trauma that can endure for generations. Offenders commit crimes for many reasons. More times than not, they fail to consider the impact their behavior has on their victims. The Victim Awareness Education Program is designed to assist offenders in accepting responsibility for the harm caused by their actions. The program is an attempt to close the gap between criminal behavior and victimization. If the cycle of crime is to be broken, offenders must understand the real impact of their crime(s), and the system must work in partnership with the victims. Formerly PSY 086.
