Présentation de l'éditeur

This new textbook provides students with the basic principles and practice standards of forensic victimology--the scientific study of victims for the purposes of addressing investigative and forensic issues. It provides case-based coverage with original insights into the role that victimology plays in the justice system, moving beyond the traditional theoretical approaches already available. The purpose of this textbook is to distinguish the investigative and forensic aspects of victim study as a necessary adjunct to the field of victimology. It identifies forensic victimologists in the investigative and forensic communities and provides them with methods and standards of practice needed to be of service.

This book is intended to educate students on the means and rationale for performing victimological assessments with a scientific mindset. Forensic Victimology is designed specifically for teaching the practical aspects of this topic, with “hands on” real-life case examples and an extensive online Instructor’s Manual featuring summaries, key terms, and test questions for every chapter.

* Applied victimology for students and caseworkers performing objective examinations as opposed to theoretical victimology that studies victim groups and crime statistics.
* First ever textbook detailing a mandate, scope and methods for forensic victimologist practitioners.
* Provides a critical / scientific counterbalance to existing mainstream texts approaching general victimology with a pro-victim bias.
* Written by practitioners of forensic victimology in the investigative, forensic, mental health, and academic communities.

Biographie de l'auteur

Brent E. Turvey spent his first years in college on a pre-med track only to change his course of study once his true interests took hold. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from Portland State University in Psychology, with an emphasis on Forensic Psychology, and an additional Bachelor of Science degree in History. He went on to receive his Masters of Science in Forensic Science after studying at the University of New Haven, in West Haven, Connecticut.

Since graduating in 1996, Brent has consulted with many agencies, attorneys, and police departments in the United States, Australia, China, Canada, Barbados and Korea on a range of rapes, homicides, and serial/ multiple rape/ death cases, as a forensic scientist and criminal profiler. He has also been court qualified as an expert in the areas of criminal profiling, forensic science, victimology, and crime reconstruction. In August of 2002, he was invited by the Chinese People's Police Security University (CPPSU) in Beijing to lecture before groups of detectives at the Beijing, Wuhan, Hanzou, and Shanghai police bureaus. In 2005, he was invited back to China again, to lecture at the CPPSU, and to the police in Beijing and Xian - after the translation of the 2nd edition of his text into Chinese for the University. In 2007, he was invited to lecture at the 1st Behavioral Sciences Conference at the Home Team (Police) Academy in Singapore, where he also provided training to their Behavioral Science Unit. In 2012 Brent completed his PhD in Criminology from Bond University in Gold Coast, Australia.

He is the author of Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Editions (1999, 2002, 2008, 2011); co- author of the Rape Investigation Handbook, 1st and 2nd Editions (2004, 2011), Crime Reconstruction 1st and 2nd Editions (2006, 2011), Forensic Victimology (2008) and Forensic Fraud (2013) - all with Elsevier Science. He is currently a full partner, Forensic Scientist, Criminal Profiler, and Instructor with Forensic Solutions, LLC, and an Adjunct Professor of Justice Studies at Oklahoma City University. He can be contacted via email at: bturvey@forensic-science.com.

Wayne Petherick is Associate Professor of Criminology at Bond University in Australia. Wayne’s areas of interest include forensic criminology, forensic victimology, criminal motivations, criminal profiling, and applied crime analysis. He has worked on risk and threat cases, a mass homicide, stalking, rape, and a variety of civil suits involving premises liability and crime prevention. He has presented to audiences in Australia and abroad, and has published in a variety of areas including social science and legal works in the areas of criminal profiling, expert evidence, stalking, serial crimes, criminal motivations, and victimology. Wayne is co-editor of Forensic Criminology, and editor of Profiling and Serial Crime: Theoretical and Practical Issues, now in its third edition.

A Sad Day for Victims and Victimology 29 janvier 2010
Par Susan W B - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Victimology is a sub-specialty in forensics that focuses on the victim of a crime or accident etc. There aren't a lot of affordable textbooks on the subject. When I saw this one and read a bit about it. I decided to give it a go. It was mainly the price that did it for me. I'm not particularly a fan of so called "profiler and forensic scientist" Brent Turvey. I was concerned that he was straying a little out of his territory. I've read his work before and am certainly aware that he has an infallible ego. He enjoys taking potshots at his peers and likes to blow his own horn in general. He seems to write on every aspect of forensics known to man. I would call him a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. I came to find out that what he really has no clue on is victimology - but I'll get back to that. Nevertheless, I decided to give him one more chance and was determined to keep an open mind. This mistake was a colossal one for me. Let me explain. I am a student of the forensic sciences/behavioral sciences and they encompass a large portion of my waking hours. Usually I'm reading about it, studying, researching, etc. I was also, at several points in my life, a victim. I was car-jacked, pistol whipped, kidnapped and severely beaten. I have also had two other brushes with death. I am now at the point where I would consider myself a survivor. Mr Turvey would have you believe that I am at fault for my victimization because I was in the wrong place at the wrong time or for any one of a myriad of other reasons.

The book begins with a preface that devotes itself to why and how victims are at fault for their own victimization and that researchers on the subject are just to scared to acknowledge this because it isn't politically correct. While he, on the other hand, is fearlessly going ahead and reporting "The Truth". He lists one anecdotal story after another of people who lie, cheat and take advantage of the system to gain monetary compensation or to have an excuse to shirk their responsibilities. Part of me felt like the stories were simply made up to illustrate his point. After I was finished with the preface, I was shocked. There was no mention of anyone who used the system because they genuinely needed or deserved it. I kept waiting for the other side of the picture, only it never came. No stories of victims who beat the odds, used the system to get back on their feet etc. I was so dumbfounded by this I had to put the book down and walk away. It was the next day when I found myself feeling terribly upset, though I didn't understand why. A friend called and after a half hour of tearful confusion she said, "It sounds like you're being awfully hard on yourself." Suddenly, I realized that after reading Turvey's book, I felt like all the tragedy in my life was all my fault! My friend suggested I burn the book. Now that I had a clearer perspective on things, I wanted to see if the preface was just bad or if now that he'd gotten this out of his system, the book would take an even handed approach. I'm sure by now you can guess how things turned out. Let me summarize: Victims are bad people, Turvey is a brilliant pioneer in the field.

I believe Mr Turvey has spent too much time with hard core criminals. He has transferred that criminal attitude onto victims and the study of victimology. Yes, people lie, cheat, steal and do any number of bad things. This occurs everywhere including with people who have been victimized or claim they have been. This little fact could have been covered in one paragraph. An entire book is just ridiculous. To take an entire group of people and tell them it's their fault for being raped, shot, stabbed, etc. is just simply wrong! I could not and will not read any more of this book. It is filled with what Turvey thinks but no where was I able to find a shred of empirical evidence that substantiated his horrible claims. I say this again with the caveat that I did not read every page of the book. I refuse to. Just because Turvey says it does not make it so and I think he has forgotten this or thinks that people should just believe him.

This book does great injustice to an important field and even more so is a further abuse to people everywhere who have been victimized.

Still mostly for the Criminal Justice of Criminal Behavior set, this text sheds light on how many times, looking at the victim can lead you to the criminal.

I like the chapter questions which are a review of the chapter. The terms are well defined at the beginning of each chapter.

Excelente texto para el Investigador Criminal 3 février 2010

En mi caso personal, me dedico a la enseñanza universitaria de posgrado y a la práctica de la Psiquiatría Forense, del Perfilado Criminal y Geográfico y de la Victimología; el libro de Turvey me ha servido para actualizar mis conocimientos y hacer mas efectivo mi trabajo como catedrático e investigador.
