AbstractThis literature review will consider the literature on political violence, specifically genocide. Human rights and psychology will come together to examine psychological impacts of political violence and potential effective accompaniments for victims of political violence. Forms of reconciliation post-political violence will be addressed regarding the Guatemalan Genocide and comparatively. A case study on the Guatemalan Genocide will also be provided addressing the human rights violations that occurred, the psychosocial impacts of the genocide and forms of reconciliation that have been implemented. The case study on Guatemala brings to light an accurate example of transitional justice, and exposes the difficulty of attaining justice for victims.
