Sexual Offense Victims
As a human service professional, I would be more comfortable working with victims of sexual offenses. This is because I have a clear knowledge of the steps I am supposed to follow to help such victims. To begin with, to fully help these individuals it is substantial to always contemplate their immediate needs. This is because, it would be detrimental to the victims to process any emotional reactions without first addressing the physical and physiological needs (Leary, Frost, & Holder, Jr., 2005). I also understand the importance of evaluating the psychological needs of the victims. At this particular juncture, I am supposed to apply my attending skills and provide the victim with empathy and respect. Besides, avoiding being judgmental is significant and I should show the victims that it was not their fault that the whole thing happened.
Another factor that I am supposed to consider is the issue of legal actions. I should know whether the victims want to report the offense. Although I have knowledge about key elements regarding legal issues, I am not supposed to pressure the victims to report the offenses but they should make their own rational decisions (Leary, Frost, & Holder, Jr., 2005). If they decide they want to pursue legal actions I should inform them that cooperation with law enforcement officials is significant.Sexual Offense Victims Assignment
Informing victims of the advantages and disadvantages of instant and delayed reporting is very significant. For instance, the advantage of reporting such offenses early helps the police gather substantial information from the victim which makes it easier to bring the offenders to justice (Leary, Frost, & Holder, Jr., 2005). Also, delaying the information is important as it gives the victims enough time to emotionally come into terms with the ordeals.
In conclusion, clear knowledge on what sexual offense victims go through is substantial. Through it I will be able to recommend a good treatment plan which will help the victims to regain their sanity.
