This week, you learned about victimology, including victim characteristics; and you read about behaviors and environments that contribute to victimization. For your assignment, you will prepare a presentation designed to educate public policy makers about the incidence of victimization. Additionally, you will propose a victimization prevention plan. You can choose a specific population to base the presentation on (e.g., domestic violence or child abuse) or you can do a general incidence/prevention presentation. You can also use a prevention program already developed, but tailor it to a new location or population.
Your presentation should include:
Explanation of the incidence of victimization.
Discussion of the contributing factors to victimization.
Exploration of the current methods used to prevent victimization.
Explanation of your proposed prevention plan.
