Empowerment of victims is crucial for recoveryThe resilience and empowerment of victims of violence, crime, accidents and disasters plays a much too small role in scientific research and assistance. That has to change, because it is precisely the ability to seek help they is very important in reducing stress and health problems. That argues Professor Peter van deer Valdes Victim logy Friday, December 20th in his inaugural address at Tilburg University.

In recent years, attention to the negative effects of crime, violence, accidents and other emergencies has grown tremendously. In it, the interest of all possible stress and health problems, which, moreover, it is known that a (small) minority of intense and there has long suffered. For the resilience and self-reliance of many victims is much less attention in the society. As for the fact that not all stress and health problems solely by the relevant events are determined. Studies show that suspected mental health problems are hardly bigger than imagined, are not always well received, while the message is essentially positive, Van deer Valdes.

Such important nuances even call incomprehension: thus becomes the suffering of those affected are not denied? Oddly plays in scientific research on the health effects, resilience and self-reliance of affected no dominant role.
