Criminological Explanation of the Impact of Child Victimization on their Delinquency


Seyed Bahman Khodadadi, Sadegh Safari
Abstract

Today, the modern upheavals and approaches in the field of applied criminology have led the social sciences researchers in general and the criminal psychology researchers in particular, to focus on the other side of the criminal act, which is the victimization, more than ever. The findings of these sciences indicate that many of the society’s members are more exposed to the victimization due to the biological, psychological, and social attributes, as they can be known as the potential victims. Meanwhile, the children, due to the weakness in their physical state and psyche, constitute the largest group of potential victims. Protection of the victimized children, in addition to prevention from their revictimization, can prevent from changing them into a criminal in the future. In this regard, the criminal psychology science has tried to mitigate the psychological distress of children by not only bringing the victim back to pre-victimization status but also preventing him/her from taking personal revenge and hostile reactions in the future. The authors, followed by the advancements, have tried to discuss the modern solutions provided by the criminal psychology as one of the specialist fields of criminology to prevent the children victimization; solutions such as group therapy, play therapy, mixed support groups, and changing the architecture of the victim children courts.
