"Dr. Miller's "Counseling Crime Victims" is extremely
effective...and it will occupy a central spot on my bookshelf...It
is really a golden find."
"--Society for Police and Criminal Psychology"
"Here is the gold standard - the book for mental health
clinicians helping crime victims sort through one of life's most
difficult and traumatic experiences.--Richard L. Levenson, Jr.,
Licensed Psychologist, New York State
As more and more mental health professionals are becoming
involved in the criminal justice system - as social service
providers, victim advocates, court liaisons, expert witnesses, and
clinical therapists - there has not been a commensurate improvement
in the quality of text material to address this expanding and
diverse field. Until now, students and practicing professionals
have had to content themselves with either overly broad texts on
criminology or trauma theory, or exceeding narrow tracts on one or
another sub-area of victim services.
"Counseling Crime Victims" provides a unique approach to helping
victims of crime. By distilling and combining the best insights and
lessons from the fields of criminology, victimology, trauma
psychology, law enforcement, and psychotherapy, this book presents
an integrated model of intervention for students and working mental
health professionals in the criminal justice system. The book
blends solid empirical research scholarship with practical,
hit-the-ground-running recommendations that mental health
professionals can begin using immediately in their daily work with
"Counseling Crime Victims" is a practical guide and reference
book that working mental health clinicians will consult again and
again in their daily practices. This book will also be of use to
attorneys, judges, law enforcement officers, social service
providers and others who work with crime victims in the criminal
justice system. It can also serve as a college- and graduate-level
text for courses in Psychology and Criminal Justice.
Key Features of this Book:

workers and counselors A practical, hands-on guide which offers
