Victimology is the study of the victims of bully, harassment, crime and the psychological effects of their experience.
A 2 DAY WORKSHOP
Drawing from the most up-to-date research and practical case studies, this workshop aims to provide you with an overview of the field of Victimology. Updated with the latest trends, it reflects the field’s growing focus on the entire victim-offender relationship, while taking a global perspective on the study of victimology.
Over the course of this workshop, we will be analyzing the magnitude of the victim’s problems. We will be looking at how to explain the causes of victimization. Finally, we will learn how to develop a system of measures to reduce victimization and its effects.
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Understand the need for victimology both theoretically and practically
- Know why victims and perpetrators are often interchangeable
- Understand the extent of workplace and school violence
- Know the reasons behind and the extent of human trafficking and its devastating effects on the victims
- Be able to articulate the risk factors for child molestation
- Know the facts about domestic violence and the primary risk factors
- Know what the criminal justice system is doing (or not doing) for crime victims
