11 chapters and greatly expanded information make this highly regarded program the program of choice for many correctional and justice facilities and officials.
The curriculum is designed to help offenders understand the impact of their crime and change their criminal thinking. As victim advocates, we can address the issue of victim impact with incarcerated men and women. The goal is to reduce victimization by reducing recidivism. This is achieved by meeting two objectives:
- To help inmates understand the impact their crime had on their victims.
- To help inmates understand the role and impact victimization has played in their own lives.
Many offenders never think about their victim as a human being or think about their victim at all. Many offenders convince themselves the victim impact is fleeting. Many don’t understand victimization has a trickle-down effect that reaches far beyond the primary victim.
