Secondary victimization

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 10 months ago

Secondary victimization

Secondary victimization is the re-traumatization of the sexual assault, abuse or rape victim.

It is an indirect result of assault which occurs through the responses of individuals and institutions to the victim. The types of secondary victimization include Victim blaming, inappropriate behavior or language by medical personnel and by other organizations with access to the victim post assault. (Campbell et. al., 1999)

 

Secondary victimization is especially rampant in cases of drug facilitated, acquaintance and statutory rape.
