Associate, bachelor, or masters in psychology, criminal justice, social work and education. You have to be good at listening, but you also have to be good in not taking the sadness and pain home. I have worked with several victims in the last decade, just based on what I do. I feel the pain and let it go. I don’t believe you have to have all the classes from the above, but you might. Check to see if you can do it online, if you have a busy schedule. Every victim needs and deserves an advocate. Sometimes, they just want to be acknowledged. Thank you, for taking on such a wonderful and very much needed profession.
