Recurring victimization: What role does head injury play?

Leah E. Daigle and Michelle N. Harris

Journal of Criminal Justice, 2018, vol. 58, issue C, 78-86

Abstract: There is little understanding of why some victims experience multiple victimization events while others are victimized once or not at all. One possible distinguishing characteristic is having a prior head injury, given the strong linkage between prior head injuries and aggression/violence and their connection to victimization. It is plausible that prior head injuries may also lead to recurring victimization.
