This article is derived from the forthcoming report “A Review of Research on Criminal Victimization and First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples 1990 to 2008,” which is an update of the original report entitled Aboriginal people were three times more likely to have been victimized compared to non-Aboriginal people (319 incidents versus 101 incidents per 1,000 population) (Brzozowski et al. These statistics confirm that Aboriginal people are disproportionately represented as victims of crime in Canada.
Perpetrators of violence against Aboriginal people are most often other members of the Aboriginal community such as spouses, relatives, or friends of the victim, and as such, victimization among Aboriginal people in Canada is often regarded as a mirror image of Aboriginal offending.
Research has identified a connection between certain demographic and social factors and an elevated risk of offending and/or victimization.
These factors include being young (Lochner 2004), living in a lone-parent family situation (Stevenson et al.
This article summarizes the findings of a recent literature review on the criminal victimization of Aboriginal people in Canada.
This review paid specific attention to demographic and social trends that have been regarded as factors possibly influencing high victimization rates.
The vast majority of dangerous, abusive and violent behaviour that occurs in the privacy of people's homes is committed by men against women.
With the exception of delayed sexual activity, no main effects of the program were found on any of the outcomes of interest overall. The program was most beneficial for those already involved in dating violence, showing a 19 percent reduction in dating violence victimization and a 29 percent reduction in perpetration.
Preventing dating violence is a concern for school administrators across the nation.
One challenging aspect of school prevention programs is that most only target high school students even though dating violence begins in middle school. The program — The Fourth R: Strategies for Healthy Youth Relationships — uses classes that focus on building healthy relationships and personal empowerment to decrease dating violence, bullying, sexual activity and substance use.
Researchers Amanda Cissner and Lama Ayoub conducted an evaluation to see whether a program already shown to decrease dating violence among Canadian high school students would also be effective with U. Cissner and Ayoub found that an adaptation of this program for middle school students did not reduce dating violence behavior generally among middle school students.
It was, however, beneficial for high-risk students, particularly those already involved in dating violence, and reduced other negative behaviors, such as bullying, especially in schools where it was implemented well.
