Victim Assistance Strategies

In this course, students conduct research, identify and evaluate the vast array of community, provincial and national services for victims of crime, including financial remedies, counselling, mental health, medical, and addiction services, all within an anti-oppressive framework. Students learn to facilitate interagency communication and multidisciplinary case management. Students gain practice in identifying and assessing the needs of victims, discerning the most appropriate referrals, and presenting strategies and approaches that can be used to advocate for victims within and between various systems.
