Andrea is currently in the third year of her doctoral program where she is studying forensic psychology with an emphasis in Victimology (a branch of criminology that scientifically studies the relationship between an injured party and an offender by examining the causes and the nature of the consequent suffering. Specifically, victimology focuses on whether the perpetrators were complete strangers, mere acquaintances, friends, family members, or even intimates and why a particular person or place was targeted. Criminal victimization may inflict economic costs, physical injuries, and psychological harm).  Andrea is focusing specifically on victims of child abuse and domestic violence.
