Annotation: This instructor's manual assists instructors in conducting victim impact classes and panels for offenders designed to assist juvenile and adult offenders in accepting responsibility for past criminal actions, understanding the impact of crime on victims, developing personal safety skills, learning how to bond with positive people, and contributing to their communities in a way that will prevent future victimization.
