Working With Victims of Individual and Mass Crimes

Requesting This Course:

Course Description:
This curriculum is designed for those who already have some training or experiential background in individual and/or group crisis intervention, and want to gain a criminal justice perspective on crisis. ICISF recognizes that many crisis interveners encounter crime victims in the course of their individual work and in their work as members of CISM teams.

This course is designed for all CISM practitioners and will enable them to make appropriate referrals to both community- and system-based crime victim assistance programs once initial crisis intervention has been provided.

Program Highlights:

  • Overview of Victimology
  • Criminal justice and victimology terms
  • How the criminal justice system works
  • Crime victims’ rights
  • Community-Based and System-Based Programs available
  • Reaction to victimization — psychological, physical, mental and social
  • Individual intervention needs of crime victims
  • Group Crisis Intervention with Crime Victims
  • Effective collaboration with professional victim service providers
