This chapter will convey how victims and professionals who have worked with them view some of the psychological aspects of these measures and what the victims themselves feel is helpful or not. After describing and conceptualizing the aftermath of the victims’ experiences, the chapter will examine some of the meanings of compensation and will also draw attention to the often neglected aspect of commemoration. (excerpt).
