Victim Impact: Listen and Learn (OVC)

Created by the Office of Victims of Crime (OVC), within the U.S.
Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs (OJP), VICTIM IMPACT: LISTEN AND
LEARN is an evidence-based curriculum designed to help justice involved
individuals become more aware of the impact crime has on victims and to take
responsibility for their actions and begin to make amends for those actions. The curriculum makes victims and their rights a central premise.

This evidence-based curriculum utilizes various learning
strategies such as discussions, readings, video clips, group activities, victim
speakers, homework, and objectives intended to engage participants.

Curriculum Units Include:

  • Unit 1: Getting Started

This unit provides an overview of the Victim Impact
Curriculum, explains adult-oriented learning strategies, and discusses the
curriculum objectives and ground rules for participating. Describes what
participants can expect during the training and discusses the terms that will
be discussed.

  • Unit 2: Introduction to Victim Impact

This unit introduces many concepts that are essential to
understanding the core curriculum: Who is a "victim"? What are
"secondary" victims? What are the core victims' rights? What is a
"ripple eff­ect"?

  • Unit 3: Property Crime

This unit discusses property crime, the illegal taking or
destroying of someone's property or land without threats or force.

  • Unit 4: Assault

This unit provides an overview of aggravated and simple
assault as well as the eff­ects of each on victims.

  • Unit 5: Robbery

This unit discusses robbery, the taking or attempting to
take anything of value (actual or perceived) from another person by force or
threat of force. Robbery is often considered a violent crime because it occurs
face to face.

  • Unit 6: Hate and Bias Crime

This unit discusses hate and bias crimes. These crimes are
motivated by hostility and prejudice against a person based on his or her race,
religion, sexual orientation, disability, or ethnicity/national origin. Most
victims are targeted because they represent a particular group rather than
because of any personal conflict or problem with the off­ender.

  • Unit 7: Gang Crime

This unit discusses gang crime, which includes, but is not
limited to: graff­iti, extortion, drug sales, burglary, home invasion, physical
assault, sexual assault, and murder.

  • Unit 8: Sexual Assault

This unit discusses sexual assault and includes examples of
both physical and nonphysical force. Physical force includes using a weapon,
hitting, kicking, choking, or holding someone down. Nonphysical force or
"coercion" includes verbally threatening a victim into doing
something he or she doesn't want to do. Although most reported cases involve women as victims, men
also are sexually assaulted.

  • Unit 9: Child Abuse and Neglect

This unit discusses the four main types of child
maltreatment: physical abuse, child neglect, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse.
These may occur separately or in combination. Emotional abuse is almost always
present when other

forms are identified.

  • Unit 10: Domestic Violence

This unit discusses domestic violence, a pattern of coercive
behaviors used against an individual's intimate partner. These behaviors may
include one or more of the following: physical, sexual, emotional,
psychological, and financial


  • Unit 11: Drunk and Impaired Driving

This unit discusses drunk and impaired driving and its e­ffects
on victims. People who drive in a drunk or impaired condition create a major
problem in our country today.

  • Unit 12: Homicide

This unit discusses homicide, defined as murder (killing
another person with prior intent to kill that particular victim or anyone who
gets in the way and with no legal excuse or authority) or manslaughter (killing
another person

without prior intent).

  • Unit 13: Making Amends

The primary goal of this curriculum is to prevent further
victimization by helping o­ffenders become aware of the impact of crime on
victims and communities. It is important for participants to acknowledge their
wrongdoing, confront themselves, and make amends for the harm they have caused.
