The present study aimed to confirm these findings for offenders in Switzerland. Socio-demographic, psychiatric, and criminological data were collected from correctional and court files for a representative sample of violent (N = 292) and sex offenders (N = 159) in the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland. It was found sex offenders were sexually abused twice as often as violent offenders (13% vs. 6%). The highest prevalence of sexual abuse was documented in the files of child molesters (19%). There were no significant differences between violent and sex offenders concerning other victimizing experiences. The prevalence for the complete offender population is in the range of the prevalence of sexual and physical abuse in the general population in Switzerland. This result indicates increased victimization is not a common phenomenon in offenders in general, but rather a specific attribute of sex offenders.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Elbert, Thomas</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/1348"/> <dc:contributor>Rossegger, Astrid</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-23T09:24:54Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Urbaniok, Frank</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Endrass, Jerome</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Urbaniok, Frank</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103416863-3868037-7"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: International Perspectives in Victimology 3 (2007), 2, pp. 24-30</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
