dc.description.abstract [CVRL Note: paper begins on page 177 of the proceedings.] The literature is replete with terms applied to the people left behind when someone they know, perhaps someone they love, has been murdered. Whether they are called co-victims (Armour, 2002), vicarious victims (Daigle, 2013), or survivors of homicide (Doerner & Lab, 2015), they include "...the family, friends, and/or significant others who have experienced the death of a loved one by homicide..." (Vessier-Batchen & Douglas (2006, p. 25). Govier & Verwoerd (2002) emphasize how a homicide affects not only family members and close associates, but also contributes to a sense of collective loss by increasing feelings of anxiety and insecurity. The authors cite the assassination of Martin Luther King and its impact on African-Americans as one example....The first element of our research will address characteristics of homicide survivors, and also how these characteristics may influence the coping/recovery process....a second component of this research will focus on secondary and tertiary victimization among one category of first responders, specifically line of duty deaths (LODD) for law enforcement.
