Once only available as a DVD, the Office for Victims of Crime‘s (OVC) “Victim Impact: Listen and Learn” is now available to view on our YouTube channel. You may also download the videos as well.
This video series features the first-person accounts of 14 men and women who share their experiences as crime victims and the ripple effect that victimization can have on family members and the community at large.
Victim Impact: Listen and Learn is intended to help offenders to become more aware of the impact that crime has on victims and to take responsibility for their actions and begin to make amends.
It is also an effective training resource for victim service providers seeking to improve their understanding of the physical, emotional, financial, and psychological effects of crime.
A companion online only training curriculum is also available and includes a two part facilitator manual and a participant workbook.
