Victims & Victimization

Crisis Intervention/ Response

Crisis intervention is an immediate response to victimization designed to help victims cope with physical, emotional, and psychological trauma in the aftermath of a crime. Crisis response to a crime victim often involves developing an empathetic dialogue with the victim, assessing the victim’s needs, and performing a psychological intervention to avert a potential crisis.
