Mendelsohn came to believe that the discipline of victimology had been overly embraced—even commandeered— by criminology and criminal justice. He believed the alignment of victimology with criminal justice stunted the otherwise growing understanding of the dynamics of victimhood—whatever the causes of victimization may be. Mendelsohn proposed to rectify this trend by developing a victim typology that accounts for all types of victims, not just victims at the hands of criminals.

Victims confronted with a sudden calamity in their lives experience a wide range of emotions. First responders during an emergency management event play an early and important role in the victim’s recovery process, or lack of recovery, as the case may be. Later, during the emergency management stage of recovery, additional services and mental health resources may be needed for deployment so that victims have the best opportunity to achieve a lasting healthy state of mind, despite the acute trauma they suffered.

In the United States, the federal government plays a significant role in the recovery process—for individuals and for businesses. S. S.
