PINERES BOTERO, Carolina Gutiérrez de; CORONEL, Elisa  and  PEREZ, Carlos Andrés. Theoretical review of the concept of secondary victimization. Liberabit [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.1, pp. 49-58. ISSN 1729-4827.

This article is a review on the theoretical concept of secondary victimization. This review is part of the line research on Secondary Victimization Processes of the Cooperative University of Colombia, Psychology Faculty, and it falls within the first phase of the project "Psychological Effects of Secondary Victimization during the Complaint." The Secondary Victimization refers to poor or inadequate attention received by a victim from the Criminal Justice system, Health Institutions and others (Garcia-Pablos, 1988; 1993). This phenomenon, despite the adverse effects caused on the victims, is not a subject of debate and attention, which could be prevented or reduced with simple measures at social, political, economic and psychological level.

Keywords : Secondary victimization; Victimology; Legal Psychology.
