For decades, most responses to treating victims of violent crime adopted a victim-blaming approach. Only recently has treatment become more victim-centered, but no theoretical foundations had been applied to this newer premise. Diane Green and Albert Roberts have changed that. With Helping Victims of Violent Crime, they have fashioned a seminal work that not only grounds victim assistance treatment in a victim-centered and strengths-based perspective, but also does so through systems theory-a holistic notion of examining a person in his or her environment.
