OVC Polyvictimization Phase 1 Short Report

For the last three years, the FJCSC has been a part of a federal demonstration initiative to measure “polyvictimization” in our clients. Polyvictimization is the cumulative impact of multiple types of victimizations and adverse experiences over the course of one’s life. We were shocked to learn that 91% of our clients reported experiencing polyvictimization and the accompanying effects. See the attached short report to read more about what we learned, the prevalence of victimizations and symptomology, and the exciting holistic changes made to service delivery.
