Psychiatry related information on Crime Victims


High impact information on Crime Victims

  • Alcohol and crack cocaine users had higher prevalence of victimization compared with heroin or noncrack cocaine users (P = .001) [5].
  • Adult-onset vulvodynia in relation to childhood violence victimization [6].
  • The objective of this study was to investigate the relation between violence victimization and levels of ovarian hormones during women's late reproductive years, as measured by serum levels of follicle-stimulating hormone and estradiol, which respectively rise and fall with onset of menopause [7].
  • Black husbands were at greater risk of spouse homicide victimization than Black wives or White spouses of either sex [8].
  • Bullying and peer victimization: position paper of the Society for Adolescent Medicine [9].

Associations of Crime Victims with chemical compounds

  • Defendants assert that they are victimized by their own involuntary intoxication or that of witnesses and crime victims who have been adversely influenced by Prozac [10].
  • This study employed a Posttest-Only Control Group Design to assess the effects of a victimization prevention program, Project TRUST, on elementary school students' knowledge of general prevention concepts, knowledge of difficult-to-acquire prevention concepts, anxiety, and reporting of abuse [11].
  • Importantly, however, pragmatic language difficulties measured on the Children's Communication Checklist (D. V. M. Bishop, 1998) were most strongly related to poor social outcome and to expressive language related to victimization [12].
  • Second, age at first victimization was correlated with current marijuana use, while age at first perpetration of violence was correlated with current crystal methamphetamine use [13].

Gene context of Crime Victims

  • In multivariate analyses, predictors of sexual victimization by Wave 1 included having been in a romantic relationship in the past 18 months (odds ratio, 2.1), having been exposed to violence in the past year (1.9), alcohol use in the last year (1.7), marijuana use in the last 30 days (1.5) and increasing levels of emotional distress (1.4) [14].
  • Traumatic victimization contributed uniquely to the prediction of ODD but not ADHD diagnoses [15].
  • RESULTS: The prevalence of reported victimization from IPV was 5.6% (95% CI = 4.9, 6.3) [16].
  • RESULTS: Past-year road rage victimization was reported by 42% of the sample and 31% reported any type of road rage offending [17].
  • KLS staff members try to determine if the patient is eligible for benefits from any of a number of programs, including Medicaid, Medicare, and Crime Victims Assistance. If KLS finds no programs for which the patient is eligible, it does not accept the case and notifies the hospital [18].
