"With this report, psychology has taken stock of itself and of its sister professions. The APA Task Force on the Victims of Crime and Violence organized itself to review the state of psychological knowledge on victimization; to survey theory and approaches to interventions for helping those who have been victimized; to explore past and present public and legal policies regarding victimization, with special emphasis on the Interface between psychology and law; and to make recommendations to the Board of Directors. This executive summary as well as the report itself consists of three parts: I. Describing the Victims of Crime and Violence; II. Psychological Help for the Victims; and III. Legal and Public Policy Issues." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
