Lecture,delivered on the official acceptance of the Intervict office of professor of Psychological Victimology at Tilburg University on October 17, 2007.
Psychological victimology concerns crime victims in need of emotionalsupport. Sources of support include significant others1, victimassistance volunteers, and mental health professionals. In the wider victimological context, victim needs spark controversy andare subject of a seemingly endless and recurring debate . The issue who is in need has a ratherstraightforward answer: victims with chronic post traumatic stressdisorder (PTSD) are in need of emotional treatment, and victimsat risk of this condition are in need of preventive counseling. The more controversial issue here is why these needs develop, andwhat constitutes a helpful and effectual response.
