    Crime is usually experienced as more serious than an accident or similar misfortune. It is difficult to come to terms with
    the fact that loss and injury have been caused by the deliberate act of another human being. At the same time, it is evident from
    research and experience that it is impossible to predict how an individual will respond to a particular crime.
    One way of conceptualizing common reactions to crime is as a process with four stages. The initial reaction may include
    shock, fear, anger, helplessness, disbelief and guilt. Such reactions are well documented in the immediate aftermath of a crime.
    Some of these reactions may recur at a later stage as well, for example, when attending a trial or going to hospital for medical
    treatment. Anger is a reaction that some victims and helpers find difficult to deal with. It may be directed at other victims,
    helpers, bystanders, organizations and also at oneself. Among some groups and in some cultures there may be a feeling that
    it is wrong to express anger even when it is strongly felt. There may be pressure on victims to control their emotions.
    These initial reactions may be followed by a period of disorganization, whichmay manifest itself in psychological effects
    such as distressing thoughts about the event, nightmares, depression, guilt, fear and a loss of confidence and esteem. Life can
    seem to slow down and lose its meaning. Previously held beliefs and faiths may no longer provide comfort. Behavioural
    responses might include increased alcohol or substance abuse, fragmentation of social relationships, avoidanceof people and
    situations associated with the crime and social withdrawal

    In traditional justice systems, victimsof aggression have usually found support and assistance from their family, village
    or tribe. The informal social network softens the impact of victimization and assists the victim in recovery. This same network
    often assists in the resolution of the conflict and in ensuring that any decisions made are actually implemented. Within this
    context, it is taken for granted that the victim (and his or her kin), the victimizer (and his or her kin) and the entire social group
    will share the burden of dealing with the conflict.
