Impact Of Crime

In this course, students examine the impact on victims of various types of crime including, cyber crime, homicide, sexual assault, elder abuse, drunk driving, assault, intimate partner violence, globalization, human trafficking and fraud. Students explore issues of grief, loss, trauma response and the costs associated with victimization. Further, students consider the ?revictimization? of individuals, as a result of the limits of existing systems and policies as well as the onset of social networking. Also, students consider the impact of crime on those charged with caring for victims of crime.
