Counseling Crime Victims by Laurence Miller
Book DescriptionAs more and more mental health professionals are becoming involved in the criminal justice system - as social service providers, victim advocates, court liaisons, expert witnesses, and clinical therapists - there has not been a commensurate improvement in the quality of text material to address this expanding and diverse field. Until now, students and practicing professionals have had to content themselves with either overly broad texts on criminology or trauma theory, or exceeding narrow tracts on one or another sub-area of victim services."Counseling Crime Victims" provides a unique approach to helping victims of crime. By distilling and combining the best insights and lessons from the fields of criminology, victimology, trauma psychology, law enforcement, and psychotherapy, this book presents an integrated model of intervention for students and working mental health professionals in the criminal justice system. The book blends solid empirical research scholarship with practical, hit-the-ground-running recommendations that mental health professionals can begin using immediately in their daily work with victims." Counseling Crime Victims" is a practical guide and reference book that working mental health clinicians will consult again and again in their daily practices. This book will also be of use to attorneys, judges, law enforcement officers, social service providers and others who work with crime victims in the criminal justice system. It can also serve as a college- and graduate-level text for courses in Psychology and Criminal Justice.Victim assistance is becoming a full-fledged field for social workers and counselors. This is a practical, hands-on guide which offers counselors techniques for dealing with victims of a wide variety of crimes. It shows counselors how to guide their clients through the legal and judicial system. It builds on Springer Publishing's successful line in violence and victims, as well as a new addition to our growing forensic social work and counseling lines.
