Description: 

Research tells us that a relatively small fraction of individuals experience a large proportion of violent victimizations.  Thus, focusing on reducing repeat victimization might have a large impact on total rates of violence.  However, research also tells us that most violent crime victims do not experience more than one incident during a six-month or one-year time period.  As a result, special policies to prevent repeat violence may not be cost-effective for most victims.

Dr. Lauritsen will summarize existing research on repeat violent victimization, both here in the United State and abroad.  She will provide new findings from the National Crime Victimization Survey about the potential impact that reducing repeat victimization might have on rates of violence in the US.  She will discuss possible factors that can be used to predict whether victimization is likely to be repeated and suggest how such information can inform policy and practice.
