Holistic Victim Restitution Plan Reflection
This week’s required readings discuss the situations that make it more likely for children and the elderly to become victims of crime and how vulnerabilities as a result of age or ability level contribute to victimization. Reflect on your preparations for your Holistic Victim Restitution Plan that is due in Week Six. Choose at least one area of your research that either made you change a pre-existing position you held about the state of victimology research, or share something that surprised you in the course of your research. To help guide your reflection, consider how your perspective has changed on the following topics: the effectiveness of the criminal justice system in addressing victimology, your understanding of victimology theories, landmark victimology federal court decisions, victimology issues, creation of a socially just society, and potential career opportunities.
In your Holistic Victim Restitution Plan Reflection, you must reflect on whether your viewpoints have changed and how you expect to use this new perspective in your current or future career going forward. At a minimum
Analyze the rise of victimology.
Evaluate empirical data regarding crime victims.
Explain the victim’s contribution to crime.
