Screening and assessment of crime victimization and its effects.


The authors provide a review of tools used to screen and assess history and mental health consequences of adult crime victimization. These measures can be utilized across a broad range of settings that may serve crime victims, including venues for first response (e.g., law enforcement offices or emergency departments), primary medical care, or mental health treatment facilities, regardless of whether or not the crime was reported. The authors conclude with a discussion on limitations in the field and directions for future research.
