Operating in the context of a victim support organisation my reserach interests covers a broad range of subjects concerning the impact of victimisation on the different domains (psychosocial, legal), and the individual and societal interpretation of victimisationn and victimhood. I have special interest in adolescent victims, sexual child abuse, vulenarable victims, and peer support.
