Externalization and Victim-Blaming among a Sample of Incarcerated Females
Jackson, Arrick L.; Lucas, Schannae L.; Blackburn, Ashley G.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v48 n3 p228-248 2009
The present study utilizes a pre- and post-test design to examine the effectiveness of an Impact of Crime on Victims Class (ICVC) on decreasing an offender's propensity to externalize responsibility for their behavior and its subsequent impact on an offender's level of victim- and society-blaming. The multiple analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) results indicate significant differences in offenders' propensity to externalize as well as a significant difference in offenders' propensity to blame either the victim, society or both. These findings and their implications are discussed. (Contains 3 tables and 7 notes.)
