Mystical Experiences as an Aid to Recovery for Crime Victims

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The loss of a loved one through violent means is devastating. Secondary victims who must suffer through the grief of losing a loved one, deal with the aftermath of the left behind situation, and the confusion of the criminal justice process can become easily overwhelmed. Additionally, these victims can feel revictimized by the very personnel who are there to assist in the process of bringing justice and restoration to them. It is imperative that criminal justice and victim services personnel do not inhibit victimsÂ’ recovery processes because of their own biases or skepticisms. Research supports the beneficial psychological effects of mystical experiences as an aid to the recovery of a loss. This paper will describe the effects of violent death on loved ones; define mystical experiences and the scientific explanations for them and the psychological benefits of them as an aid to recovery, and detail why criminal justice, therapeutic, and victim services personnel need not discount them because of the implications of further revictimization and hindering of the healing process.
