VICTIM REPRESENTATIVE

According to SOMB Standard 5.510: “.... The primary responsibility of the victim representative is to provide an avenue for victims and their families to be informed and heard. Involving a victim representative on the CST has many benefits, including improving supervision of the offender, increasing offender accountability, building empathy for the victim, decreasing offender secrecy, preventing an unbalanced alignment with the offender, and ensuring a safer community. The exchange of information between the victim, or the victim representative, and CST is crucial for the treatment of the offender and is often beneficial for the healing of the victim.
