Homicide Co-Victimization

Brief

Homicide Co-Victimization

Abstract

Homicide co-victims are people who have lost a loved one to homicide, including immediate family members, other relatives/kin, and friends of the murdered victim. About 1 in 10 Americans will lose a loved one to homicide during their lifetime, yet few services specifically address homicide co-victims’ needs. One promising exception is Restorative Retelling, a type of group therapy that has been successfully applied to address the psychological harms of homicide co-victims. This research brief (link will take you to an external site) summarizes evidence from the best available research, practice, and contextual materials on this subject.
