Abstract

To help patients who have been the victims of violent crime or who have lost loved ones to homicide, psychotherapy must emphasize both concrete, practical helping strategies as well as subtle, reconstructive and integrative modalities. This article reviews the literature on psychotherapy of crime victims and offers recommendations for helping adult and child survivors recover from the traumatizing effects of human malice.
