Individuals experience victimization differently. Understanding diversity is important for victim assistance workers in order to respond effectively to victims' needs. Students explore the needs of victims from different cultural and economic backgrounds. Emphasis is given to specific populations such as victims of hate crimes, the homeless, the disabled, and victims of war. Students learn how to deal sensitively with unique groups while applying an anti-oppression framework.
