Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • State their own values, morals, and ethics;
  • State how these attitudes and beliefs influence their responses to victims of crime;
  • Recognize when a person is acting in an ethically questionable way;
  • State ways in which to make ethics and standards part of an organizational culture

Workshop Summary: This workshop introduces participants to the concept of ethics and ethical standards when working with victims of crime. Utilizing case scenarios, participants engage in group discussion and small group activities that will help to broaden their understanding of the ethical dilemmas faced when working with victims of crime, the impact these can have on victims and providers and the impact unethical behavior can have on organizations.

Since 2003, first responders, law enforcement, state’s attorney offices and other criminal justice professionals have utilized ETHICS IN VICTIM SERVICES TRAINING for the purpose of retaining standardized practices for their agencies.
