It is estimated that three in ten people have been victims of crime, and one in four women have been sexually abused. But in reality, that number is likely higher, as many crimes go unreported.
Whether you are a victim that has or has not reported the crime to authorities, the resulting stress or trauma experienced is real. Even if you have been a witness to a crime or escaped from a potential criminal act, it can be difficult to cope.
Murder, assault, theft, burglary, robbery – not all crimes are the same. And as a victim of crime, their family members, or witnesses, not all of your reactions are the same. Feelings of vulnerability and of being physically or psychologically violated, along with not feeling safe, are common. Reactions such as sleep disruptions, depression, excessive anxiety, fear of noises, increased suspicion of strangers, the need to keep weapons nearby, and repeatedly checking locked doors and windows are typical. Even signs of post-traumatic stress may surface following the crime experience.
