The more times an individual has been victimized, the more likely that person is to be subject to future victimization. Also, the more times an offender engages in criminal behavior, the more likely they are to continue that conduct. This cycle of violence, for both the offenders and victims, can be addressed and broken when both individual-level variables and non-changeable variables are addressed. As a helping professional, being aware of interventions and strategies for addressing these variables, and being aware of the odds of their success, is crucial to helping that individual stop the cycle of violence.
