    Sammanfattning

    The purpose of Therapeutic Jurisprudence is to execute legal procedures such that they promote the social and psychological well-being of the individual involved in a juridical action.

    The aim of the present study was to investigate crime victims’ psychological well-being related to their experiences of being interviewed by the police and questioned by the prosecutor.

    Eighty-three crime victims completed a questionnaire about their experiences from their police interviews and the questions from the prosecutor. To measure the crime victims’ psychological well-being, the Sense of Coherence form and the Impact of Event Scale was used.

    PCA revealed that the victims perceived their police interviews and questions from prosecutors as marked of humanity or dominance. Victims who perceived high humanitarian police interviews showed a significant higher psychological well-being than those who perceived low humanitarian police interviews. There were no significant differences in psychological well-being associated with questions from prosecutors.
