Improving social interaction in chronic psychotic using discriminated avoidance ("nagging"): experimental analysis and generalization. (1/463)

Three social-interaction behaviors of a withdrawn chronic schizophrenic were increased using a discriminated avoidance ("nagging") procedure. The three behaviors were: (a) voice volume loud enough so that two-thirds of his speech was intellibible at a distance of 3m; (b) duration of speech of at least 15 sec; (c) placement of hands and elbows on the armrests of the chair in which he was sitting. "Nagging" consisted of verbal prompts to improve performance when the behaviors did not meet their criteria. A combined withdrawal and multiple-baseline design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the procedure, and the contingency was sequentially applied to each of the three behaviors in each of four different interactions to determine the degree of stimulus and response generalization. Results indicated that the contingency was the effective element in increasing the patient's appropriate performance, and that there was a high degree of stimulus generalization and a moderate degree of response generalization. After the patient's discharge from the hospital, the durability of improvement across time and setting was determined in followup sessions conducted at a day treatment center and at a residential care home. Volume and duration generalized well to the new settings, while arm placement extinguished immediately.  (+info)

The effects of social punishment on noncompliance: a comparison with timeout and positive practice. (2/463)

The effects of social punishment, positive practice, and timeout on the noncompliant behavior of four mentally retarded children were assessed in a multitreatment withdrawal design. When programmed, the experimental procedure occurred contigent on non-compliance to experimenter-issued commands. Commands were given at 55-sec intervals throughout each experimental session. The results showed (1) lower levels of noncompliance with social punishment than with the positive-practice or timeout conditions, and (2) that relatively few applications of social punishment were required to obtain this effect. The advantages of social punishment over other punishment procedures, considerations to be made before using it, and the various aspects of the procedure that contribute to its effectiveness were discussed.  (+info)

Further analysis of the separate and interactive effects of methylphenidate and common classroom contingencies. (3/463)

We evaluated separate and interactive effects between common classroom contingencies and methylphenidate (MPH) on disruptive and off-task behaviors for 4 children with a diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Analogue conditions consisting of contingent teacher reprimands, brief time-out, no interaction, and alone were conducted in a multielement design. Medication status (MPH or placebo) was alternated across days in a superordinate multielement design. Results indicate that (a) the behavioral effects of MPH were influenced by one or more of the analogue conditions for each participant, and (b) time-out was associated with zero or near-zero levels of both disruptive and off-task behavior for 3 of the 4 participants during MPH and placebo conditions. Implications for the clinical effectiveness of MPH and possible behavioral mechanisms of action of MPH in applied settings are discussed.  (+info)

An analysis of choice making in the assessment of young children with severe behavior problems. (4/463)

We examined how positive and negative reinforcement influenced time allocation, occurrence of problem behavior, and completion of parent instructions during a concurrent choice assessment with 2 preschool-aged children who displayed severe problem behavior in their homes. The children were given a series of concurrent choice options that varied availability of parent attention, access to preferred toys, and presentation of parent instructions. The results showed that both children consistently allocated their time to choice areas that included parent attention when no instructions were presented. When parent attention choice areas included the presentation of instructions, the children displayed differential patterns of behavior that appeared to be influenced by the presence or absence of preferred toys. The results extended previous applications of reinforcer assessment procedures by analyzing the relative influence of both positive and negative reinforcement within a concurrent-operants paradigm.  (+info)

Different contributions of the human amygdala and ventromedial prefrontal cortex to decision-making. (5/463)

The somatic marker hypothesis proposes that decision-making is a process that depends on emotion. Studies have shown that damage of the ventromedial prefrontal (VMF) cortex precludes the ability to use somatic (emotional) signals that are necessary for guiding decisions in the advantageous direction. However, given the role of the amygdala in emotional processing, we asked whether amygdala damage also would interfere with decision-making. Furthermore, we asked whether there might be a difference between the roles that the amygdala and VMF cortex play in decision-making. To address these two questions, we studied a group of patients with bilateral amygdala, but not VMF, damage and a group of patients with bilateral VMF, but not amygdala, damage. We used the "gambling task" to measure decision-making performance and electrodermal activity (skin conductance responses, SCR) as an index of somatic state activation. All patients, those with amygdala damage as well as those with VMF damage, were (1) impaired on the gambling task and (2) unable to develop anticipatory SCRs while they pondered risky choices. However, VMF patients were able to generate SCRs when they received a reward or a punishment (play money), whereas amygdala patients failed to do so. In a Pavlovian conditioning experiment the VMF patients acquired a conditioned SCR to visual stimuli paired with an aversive loud sound, whereas amygdala patients failed to do so. The results suggest that amygdala damage is associated with impairment in decision-making and that the roles played by the amygdala and VMF in decision-making are different.  (+info)

Multicomponent assessment and treatment of cigarette pica. (6/463)

We conducted a multicomponent assessment and treatment for 4 individuals who engaged in cigarette pica. During Phase 1, three stimulus preference assessments were conducted to identify (a) the reinforcing component of the cigarette, (b) potential alternative reinforcers that may be used during treatment, and (c) whether the alternative reinforcer would compete effectively with cigarettes. Results were successful in identifying the reinforcing component of the cigarette and suggested the feasibility of using alternative reinforcers during treatment to eliminate cigarette pica. During Phase 2, the effects of two treatment procedures were evaluated. Noncontingent reinforcement (NCR) with the alternative edible reinforcer reduced the pica of 2 of the participants, but effects were not maintained when the initial dense schedule of NCR was thinned. Subsequently, differential reinforcement of alternative behavior with the alternative edible reinforcer was effective in reducing pica for 3 participants. An evaluation of nine treatment procedures failed to identify an effective intervention for the remaining participant; consequently, preventive measures were designed to minimize occurrences of cigarette pica.  (+info)

Effects of reinforcement for alternative behavior during punishment of self-injury. (7/463)

A number of variables influence the effectiveness of punishment and may determine the extent to which less intrusive forms of punishment may be used as alternatives to more intrusive interventions. For example, it has been suggested that response suppression during punishment may be facilitated if reinforcement is concurrently available for an alternative response. However, results of basic research demonstrating this finding have not been replicated with interventions more commonly prescribed as treatments for problem behavior. We evaluated the effects of relatively benign punishment procedures (reprimands or brief manual restraint) on the self-injurious behavior of 4 individuals who had been diagnosed with mental retardation, when access to reinforcement for alternative behavior (manipulation of leisure materials) was and was not available. In all cases, punishment produced greater response suppression when reinforcement for an alternative response was available.  (+info)

Slapping and spanking in childhood and its association with lifetime prevalence of psychiatric disorders in a general population sample. (8/463)

BACKGROUND: Little information is available in Canada about the prevalence of and outcomes associated with a history of slapping and spanking in childhood. The objectives of this study were to estimate the prevalence of a history of slapping or spanking in a general population sample and to assess the relation between such a history and the lifetime prevalence of psychiatric disorders. METHODS: In this general population survey, a probability sample of 9953 residents of Ontario aged 15 years and older who participated in the Ontario Health Supplement was used to examine the prevalence of a history of slapping and spanking. A subgroup of this sample (n = 4888), which comprised people aged 15 to 64 years who did not report a history of physical or sexual abuse during childhood, was used to assess the relation between a history of slapping or spanking and the lifetime prevalence of 4 categories of psychiatric disorder. The measures included a self-administered questionnaire with a question about frequency of slapping and spanking during childhood, as well as an interviewer-administered questionnaire to measure psychiatric disorder. RESULTS: The majority of respondents indicated that they had been slapped or spanked, or both, by an adult during childhood "sometimes" (33.4%) or "rarely" (40.9%); 5.5% reported that this occurred "often." The remainder (20.2%) reported "never" experiencing these behaviours. Among the respondents without a history of physical or sexual abuse during childhood, those who reported being slapped or spanked "often" or "sometimes" had significantly higher lifetime rates of anxiety disorders (adjusted odds ratio [OR] 1.43, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.04-1.96), alcohol abuse or dependence (adjusted OR 2.02, 95% CI 1.27-3.21) and one or more externalizing problems (adjusted OR 2.08, 95% CI 1.36-3.16), compared with those who reported "never" being slapped or spanked. There was also an association between a history of slapping or spanking and major depression, but it was not statistically significant (adjusted OR 1.64, 95% CI 0.96-2.80). INTERPRETATION: There appears to be a linear association between the frequency of slapping and spanking during childhood and a lifetime prevalence of anxiety disorder, alcohol abuse or dependence and externalizing problems.  (+info)

1 June 2018, CRC/C/LSO/CO/2 Unedited advance version, Concluding observations on second report, paras. 26, 27 and 29). The Committee notes that corporal punishment is prohibited in schools by law. However, the Committee is seriously concerned that corporal punishment is not explicitly prohibited by law at home, in alternative care settings, day care or penal institutions and that it continues to be used at school despite prohibition.. With reference to its general comment No. 8 (2006) on corporal punishment, the Committee urges the State party to:. (a) Explicitly prohibit corporal punishment in all settings by law;. (b) Effectively enforce the prohibition of corporal punishment in schools and provide children with a complaints mechanism in schools so that they can safely and confidentially report cases of corporal punishment;. (c) Provide programmes for parents, teachers, and professionals that work with and for children to encourage the use of alternative non-violent forms of discipline and ...
BrainMass has two detailed sections on punishment through the lenses of Hobbes and Utilitarianism, two popular perspectives on in the field.. There are some questions that should be explored when studying punishment from a sociological perspective. Is punishment for the sake of punishment justifiable? If not, when is punishment justified? What kinds of punishment? Does punishment have to serve a purpose? What do we do when the punishments society dole out stop serving their purpose?. Social Contract theory states that having a single sovereign to set and enforce punishments that are worse than living within societys boundaries is completely necessary or men will not adjust themselves to fit the societal norms.¹. Utilitarianists argue that punishment is only justifiable when it serves a use or has value.¹. Punishment has changed in the last few hundred years. We no longer have public executions but do our states still set punishment as a means of reassurance for victims?. This is an issue in ...
Corporal punishment is lawful in the home. Law No. 32/2016 of 28/08/2016 Governing Persons and Family passed in August 2016 repealed the Civil Code 1988, which previously recognised a right of correction to parents under its article 347. The new Law does not mention the right of correction but it does not explicitly repeal it and does not explicitly prohibit corporal punishment: it is a silent repeal which does not achieve a full ban of all corporal punishment.. In 2011, the Government accepted the recommendation made during the Universal Periodic Review of Rwanda to prohibit all corporal punishment of children.[1] The National Integrated Child Rights Policy, adopted by the Ministry of Gender and Family Promotion in the same year and intended as a guide for legislation, states that physical abuse, including torture and cruelty against children and corporal punishment of children is prohibited in all settings and defines all settings as including homes, communities, schools, all centres ...
There is strong evidence of a positive association between corporal punishment and negative child outcomes, but previous studies have suggested that the manner in which parents implement corporal punishment moderates the effects of its use. This study investigated whether severity and justness in the use of corporal punishment moderate the associations between frequency of corporal punishment and child externalizing and internalizing behaviors. This question was examined using a multicultural sample from eight countries and two waves of data collected one year apart. Interviews were conducted with 998 children aged 7-10 years, and their mothers and fathers, from China, Colombia, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Philippines, Thailand, and the United States. Mothers and fathers responded to questions on the frequency, severity, and justness of their use of corporal punishment; they also reported on the externalizing and internalizing behavior of their child. Children reported on their aggression. Multigroup ...
This dissertation examined the student discipline policies of 1,025 Texas school districts, as well as data from the Texas Education Agencys Academic Excellence Indicator System in order to identify demographic patterns regarding corporal punishment policies in Texas schools. the study also studied the relationship between a districts corporal punishment policy and student achievement. the dissertation utilized legal research methods and document analysis as its research methodology. Document analysis was the primary methodology used to answer the research questions whereby individual school district policies were identified and classified based on a number of demographic characteristics as well as the variations in corporal punishment policies among the various districts. the results of the study found that although more Texas school districts permit corporal punishment than have banned the practice, 60 percent of Texas school children go to school in districts where corporal punishment is not
The study contains cross-section data on the relationship between aggregate levels of punishment and crime rates. It examines deterrent effects of punishment on seven Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) index crimes: murder, rape, assault, larceny, robbery, burglary, and auto theft, committed in 1960 in 47 states of the United States (excluded were New Jersey, Alaska, and Hawaii). For each state, the data include variables for the reported crime rates for each of the seven index crimes. For each of the index crimes, there are two sanction variables included: the probability of prison commitment and the average time served by those sentenced (severity of punishment). There are 11 socioeconomic variables, including family income, income distribution, unemployment rate for urban males in the age groups 14-24 and 35-39, labor force participation rate, educational level, percentage of young males in population, percentage of non-white young males living in the population, percentage of population ...
It is estimated that corporal punishment is administered between 1 and 2 million times a year in schools in the United States.1 Increasingly, states are abolishing corporal punishment as a means of discipline, but statutes in some states still allow school officials to use this form of discipline.2-4 The American Academy of Pediatrics believes that corporal punishment may affect adversely a students self-image and school achievement and that it may contribute to disruptive and violent student behavior.1,5-7 Alternative methods of behavioral management have proved more effective than corporal punishment and are specifically described in the reference articles.5-7Physical force or constraint by a school official may be required in a limited number of carefully selected circumstances to protect students and staff from physical injury, to disarm a student, or to prevent property damage.. The American Academy of Pediatrics urges parents, educators, school administrators, school board members, ...

Is the debt of punishment an effect of sin? Can one sin be the punishment of another? Does any sin incur a debt of eternal punishment? Does sin incur a debt of punishment that is infinite in quantity? Does every sin incur a debt of eternal and infinite punishment? Can the debt of punishment remain after sin? Is every punishment inflicted for a sin? Can one person incur punishment for anothers sin?
Physical punishment is a serious public health problem in the United States, and it profoundly affects the mental health of children and the society in which we live. Studies show that over 60% of families use physical punishment to discipline children. Yet, the research shows that physical punishment is associated with an increase in delinquency, antisocial behavior, and aggression in children, and a decrease in the quality of the parent-child relationship, mental health, and the childs capacity to internalize socially acceptable behavior. Adults who have been subject to physical punishment as children are more likely to abuse their own child or spouse and to manifest criminal behavior (1).. Spanking is a euphemism for hitting. One is not permitted to hit ones spouse or a stranger; these actions are considered domestic violence and/or assault. Nor should one be permitted to hit a smaller and even more vulnerable child. Hitting a child elicits precisely the feelings one does not want to ...
Downloadable! Inequality aversion is a key motive for punishment, with many prominent studies suggesting people use punishment to reduce or eliminate inequality. Punishment in laboratory games, however, is nearly always designed to promote equality (e.g., rejections in standard ultimatum games) and the marginal cost of punishment is typically non-trivially positive. As a consequence, individual preferences over punishment outcomes remain largely uninformed. We here report data from a laboratory experiment using dictator games. We find that when people are treated unfairly they systematically prefer to use punishment to create advantageous inequality. Our results shed new light on human preferences over punishment outcomes, and have important implications for the design of mechanisms to deter misconduct.
While the opportunity to punish selfish and reward generous behavior coexist in many instances in daily life, in most laboratory studies, the demand for punishment and reward are studied separately from one another. This paper presents the results from an experiment measuring the demand for reward and punishment by unaffected third parties, separately and jointly. We find that the demand for costly punishment is substantially lower when individuals are also given the ability to reward. Similarly, the demand for costly reward is lower when individuals can also punish. The evidence indicates the reason for this is that costly punishment and reward are not only used to alter the material payoff of others as assumed by recent economic models, but also as a signal of disapproval and approval of others actions, respectively. When the opportunity exists, subjects often choose to withhold reward as a form of costless punishment, and to withhold punishment as a form of costless reward. We conclude that
A recent discussion among a couple members of the studio audience touched briefly on the question of what it takes for something to count as punishment.. Specifically, it touched on the question of whether taxation can be properly classified as punishment.. The discussion merely grazed the surface of this question, then ricocheted off. However, I have heard the statement a number of times - particularly by libertarians (a tribe in which I was once a member).. Furthermore, this is a blog that suggests that the institution of morality is (or should be) the application of praise, condemnation, reward, and punishment to promote good desires and inhibit bad desires. It would be useful to say a few things about what punishment is.. Punishment involves intentionally doing harm to somebody. In other words, the act of punishment seeks to create a state of affairs in which the desires of others (those who are being punished) are deliberately thwarted. The thwarting of the desires of others is not a ...
Last month the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) took a strong stand against the common practice of physical punishment. Its a position that could have far-reaching consequences for childrens rights. What started as a dispute about a churchs promotion of physical punishment will lead to a legal ban on all forms of corporal punishment in the home - that is, if Cabinet follows the SAHRCs recommendations and initiates a law reform process that stops parents and caregivers from smacking their children.
In this course, we will explore the history and theory of punishment in the 19th and 20th Centuries. The main focus will be on the history of punishment in the United States, but we will draw on broader theoretical traditions and use comparative cases from other places. Central to the study will be patterns of change in punishment practices and how these reflected and/or foster new perspectives on who criminals are and what makes them misbehave. We will seek to understand how punishment systems create and defend coherent, if changing narratives about deviance, crime, and correction, and how these narratives work to organize the internal practices and the public discourse about punishment. Topics will include the invention of the penitentiary in the early/mid-19th Century, the development of industrial penology and the big house in the early 20th Century, contract labor systems and chain gangs that comprised penal practice in the American South after the Civil War, and the emergence of ...
This Brief reviews the past, present, and future use of school corporal punishment in the United States, a practice that remains legal in 19 states as it is constitutionally permitted according to the U.S. Supreme Court. As a result of school corporal punishment, nearly 200,000 children are paddled
Although physical punishment is used by as many as 94% of parents in some countries,[2] a growing number of countries have banned its use[3]. Some American pediatricians oppose all use of corporal punishment, whereas others think there are situations where nonabusive spanking should remain a disciplinary option for parents[4]. The author of one major literature review opposes all spanking,[5, 6] whereas five other recent literature reviews have made less absolute conclusions [7-11]. In either case, pediatricians need research evidence comparing the effects of alternative disciplinary tactics with spanking to advise parents about which tactics to use instead of spanking. To provide that information, the present study is one of the first causally relevant longitudinal studies to compare the child outcomes of alternative disciplinary tactics with those of customary spanking. Specifically, it attempts to duplicate the strongest causal evidence against customary spanking to date[1] and investigates ...
Shackleton & Appleblim - Soundboy Punishments The most successful and yet experimental of dubsteps first wave are those that have drifted furthest away from the grime roots of the genre. In terms of definitive albums, Burials eponymous debut is the shining light (or is that shining dark?) example of this, but its now joined by South Londons Skull Disco label compilation. Burial had the advantage of releasing an album in the purest sense of the word, but this release is only less classic because of what it is, a compilation, not because it lacks in quality or intensity. Between them, Shackleton and Appleblim (with a sole contribution by Gatekeeper) have filled two discs with tracks culled from their fledgling labels six releases, topping it off with the inclusion of Ricardo Villalobos epic eighteen-minute minimal techno remix of Blood on My Hands. Shackleton opens proceedings, and the majority of tracks are simply dazzling throughout. His minimal drum pressures and ethnic atmospheres are ...

Drugs that alter dopamine transmission have opposite effects on reward and punishment learning. These opposite effects have been suggested to depend on dopamine in the striatum. Here, we establish for the first time the neurochemical specificity of such drug effects, during reward and punishment learning in humans, by adopting a coadministration design. Participants (N = 22) were scanned on 4 occasions using functional magnetic resonance imaging, following intake of placebo, bromocriptine (dopamine-receptor agonist), sulpiride (dopamine-receptor antagonist), or a combination of both drugs. A reversal-learning task was employed, in which both unexpected rewards and punishments signaled reversals. Drug effects were stratified with baseline working memory to take into account individual variations in drug response. Sulpiride induced parallel span-dependent changes on striatal blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) signal during unexpected rewards and punishments. These drug effects were found to be ...

In the case of summary punishment, a form is sent to the suspect on which he/she admits to the offence and accepts the punishment. This is voluntary and the suspect may choose to allow the prosecutor to bring charges and have the case tried in a court of law instead. Summary punishment is possible in the case of an offence for which the punishment is restricted to a fine and/or conditional sentence. Examples of such offences are theft, shoplifting and traffic infringements. ...

Parochial altruism refers to altruism that is directed in a preferential manner towards members of ones own social group.[20] In order to examine this effect, a study examined the outcomes of TP-DG experiments carried out in between two Papua New Guinea indigenous groups. The games had 4 conditions, which included: players A (dictator), B (recipient), and C (observer) all from the same group; only A and B from the same group; only A and C from the same group; only B and C from the same group.[6] Current behavioral theories state that norms are emergent from interactions within groups,[21] and therefore, outsiders dont obey the norm nor benefit from the altruistic behavior the norm enforces. This theory would therefore predict that no punishment will occur in any of the cases except for the ABC treatment condition. However, it was found that punishment was qualitatively similar in all 4 conditions, which suggests that egalitarian sharing norms exist within-groups and also ...
Although 32 countries across the world have banned physical punishment, parents so called right to spank remains a legal practice in the United States. A new research will only spark more controversies as spanking and other physical punishment have been linked to mental disorders.. Two years ago, a study by the University of North Carolina estimated 80 percent of U.S. preschool children are spanked. According to the Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment, both the United States and Canada have not abolished the so called parents right to apply physical punishment. A Canadian study shows the consequences are more significant over the years, as physical punishment leads to mental disorders.. The journal Pediatrics published today a study looking at a very sensitive subject. Researchers with Canadas University of Manitoba, Department of Community Health Sciences, investigated the link between different sorts of maltreatment in childhood and the development of mental disorders. ...

Lusaka - Zambia: The Assertive Girl Zambia (TAGZ) Founder Caroline Lungu has called for stiffer punishments on rape and defilement cases in Zambia.
Families seem divided almost down the middle on the issue of whether spanking is an acceptable form of discipline. In response to the question: Is physical punishment on a child unacceptable for you?†48% of people expressed opinion that corporal punishment is an effective way of upbringing, according to Meetville.com (dating app), which collected the results in a course of a poll, conducted between 9/1/14 and 11/21/14.. The NFLs recent action of suspending Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson without pay for the rest of the season and not allowing him to be eligible for reinstatement before April 15, gave way to social media frenzy once again about child rearing and child abuse. The league stated it suspended Peterson for violating the personal conduct policy after pleading no contest to a charge of reckless assault. He had been arrested for spanking his 4-year-old son with a switch, inflicting scratches and welts on the childs arms, legs and genitals.. It was Petersons ...
Hello there. So, I am among those who abused the mmr exploita week back or so. I wont bother justifying why, but I am here to ask if theyve forgotten to punish the players who did this. Ever since the forum post, Ive pretty much just been waiting around for Blizzard to come and take away my gear and hand me that 72 hour suspension, but it is not happening. I personally did not gain anything from abusing this exploit. I didnt get get an achievement and I already had 2200 from RBG. Some
RATIONALE: People often face decisions that pit self-interested behavior aimed at maximizing personal reward against normative behavior such as acting cooperatively, which benefits others. The threat of social sanctions for defying the fairness norm prevents people from behaving overly selfish. Thus, normative behavior is influenced by both seeking rewards and avoiding punishment. However, the neurochemical processes mediating the impact of these influences remain unknown. Several lines of evidence link the dopaminergic system to reward and punishment processing, respectively, but this evidence stems from studies in non-social contexts. OBJECTIVES: The present study investigates dopaminergic drug effects on individuals reward seeking and punishment avoidance in social interaction. METHODS: Two-hundred one healthy male participants were randomly assigned to receive 300 mg of L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA) or a placebo before playing an economic bargaining game. This game involved two ...
Decision-making involves two fundamental axes of control namely valence, spanning reward and punishment, and action, spanning invigoration and inhibition. We recently exploited a go/no-go task whose contingencies explicitly decouple valence and action to show that these axes are inextricably coupled during learning. This results in a disadvantage in learning to go to avoid punishment and in learning to no-go to obtain a reward. The neuromodulators dopamine and serotonin are likely to play a role in these asymmetries: Dopamine signals anticipation of future rewards and is also involved in an invigoration of motor responses leading to reward, but it also arbitrates between different forms of control. Conversely, serotonin is implicated in motor inhibition and punishment processing. To investigate the role of dopamine and serotonin in the interaction between action and valence during learning. We combined computational modeling with pharmacological manipulation in 90 healthy human volunteers, using ...
The old version of adolescent punishment was being grounded. That meant that the adolescent was unable to leave the house for whatever period of time that the punishment lasted. The problem with punishments like that is their all inclusive nature.. One of the things that I try to teach parents is that it makes sense to give punishments in small quantities. That accomplishes several things. The first thing that it does is allow you to be able to add on to the punishment later. If a child gets punished for a week, then any subsequent punishment will have to occur after that week is up.. If the punishment is for a few hours, then additional hours are easy to add. The second thing it does is give the child part of what they want but not all of it. For example, missing an entire TV program may not be as bad as getting to watch only the first half of it.. When my children were growing up, a very good punishment was limiting the use of the car. Unfortunately, they had to be old enough to drive for that ...
Temple City Parks and Recreation officials backed away from a proposal that would ban Live Oak Park sports groups from using physical activity, such as running or push-ups, as punishment.. The Parks and Recreation Commission will likely consider a different proposal after hearing from leaders of several youth sports organizations.. Im concerned theyre gong to be police watchdogs watching over us to see how were training our kids, said Mike Wintercorn, president of Temple City Amateur Softball Association.. Running is part of the stretching phase getting ready to play. We dont want them telling us we cant have our kids doing that because its punishment.. Cathy Burroughs, the citys director of Parks and Recreation, said its difficult to make a determination between activities intended as punishment versus physical conditioning.. The proposal was prompted by a concerned parent. It would have required sports groups to ensure that participants are not subject to emotional, physical, ...

Today, I want to take on another one of the big-ticket moral issues; capital punishment.. My overall position is that the issue of capital punishment is complex and depends on whether certain facts are true or false. Then again, I hold that all moral claims are to be determined to be true or false and are not to be settled by means of an appeal to feelings, intuitions, a mysterious moral sense, or similar forms of magic.. For example, the murder rate is highest in the South, where capital punishment is widely used, and lower in Northern states which have ceased to support capital punishment. (pdf) Murder rates are higher in the United States than they are in Europe, which has also given up capital punishment. They are higher, even, than in Canada, which has also quit using capital punishment.. In this case, I suspect that the evidence suggests that capital punishment is wrong. By this I mean that society is best served by promoting an overall aversion to killing that is so strong that we are ...
Justia guest columnist and Loyola Law School professor Paula Mitchell continues her series of columns on the death penalty, describing the punishments effect on jurors, justices, governors, and executioners. She presents testimonies from various people involved in different parts of the process of capital sentencing and execution. She concludes that the public should consider the impact capital punishment has on those individuals who have to make the decisions of life and death.

Social norms and the associated altruistic behaviours are decisive for the evolution of human cooperation1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and the maintenance of social order10, and they affect family life, politics11 and economic interactions12. However, as altruistic norm compliance and norm enforcement often emerge in the context of inter-group conflicts13,14, they are likely to be shaped by parochialism15-a preference for favouring the members of ones ethnic, racial or language group. We have conducted punishment experiments16, which allow impartial observers to punish norm violators, with indigenous groups in Papua New Guinea. Here we show that these experiments confirm the prediction of parochialism. We found that punishers protect ingroup victims-who suffer from a norm violation-much more than they do outgroup victims, regardless of the norm violators group affiliation. Norm violators also expect that punishers will be lenient if the latter belong to their social group. As a consequence, norm ...
The general existence of the death penalty by itself, without even linking it to mentally disordered offenders, constitutes one of the most controversial and highly disputed forms of punishment in todays society. It can be defined as the deliberate, institutionalized taking of human life by the state, which at the same time constitutes the greatest conceivable degradation to the dignity of the human personality.. The fact that most countries have repealed the death penalty in their domestic constitutions shows a general reluctance towards the use of this primitive form of punishment. Although still not prohibited in international law, one can speak of an increasing concession among intergovernmental organizations and states that the death penalty violates the value of human dignity and the right to life. This is supported by established international instruments aimed at the abolition, or at least limitation, of the death penalty, such as treaties and other resolutions adopted by UN bodies ...
Jerry,. Thank you for the informative post. If I can respond with two uninformed comments and (worse) a speculation:. 1. As you note, according to Gallup, the percent of those opposed to the death penalty has more than doubled since the late 1980s and early 1990s, and support for capital punishment has fallen to a 39-year low. It would be interesting to know if the Christian support for capital punishment has remained stable or also declined.. This would be most interesting to know for Catholics. In 1995, Pope John Paul II, in Evangelium Vitae, said that executions should only be carried out in rare, if not practically non-existent cases of absolute necessity. In 1999, in St. Louis, he suggested that the death penalty was cruel and unnecessary. Although American bishops had earlier said that the use of the death penalty was not justified in the United States (e.g., Cardinal Bernardin), this papal disapproval seemed like a development.. Has American Catholic support for the death penalty ...
For example, in October of 2009 Gallup conducted its yearly death penalty survey and found that nationally, 65% of U.S. citizens favored capital punishment for murder. Yet, incredibly, when New York City residents were asked a month later if they supported the death penalty for alleged 911 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed if found guilty, 77% sad yes while only 18% said no (USA Today/Gallup, Nov. 20-22, 2009). Politically, socially and culturally, NYC is a very liberal place. It is bluer than blue. Yet it decisively trumped the rest of the nation in support for the death penalty when a very real incident involving real evil was in play. And, I might add, one cant be a true foe of capital punishment if an exception is made for a particular individual (granted, a particularly bad one ...

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): High school students were questioned about their perceptions of the certainty and severity of punishment for marijuana use and shoplifting. It was found that those respondents who perceived a higher certainty of punishment engage in less marijuana use and shoplifting. Those respondents who perceive a higher severity of punishment do not engage in less marijuana use and shoplifting. Those respondents who perceive marijuana use or shoplifting to be offenses mala in se engage in fewer offenses, but also, in the case of shoplifting, are less deterred by threat of punishment than are respondents who define that shoplifting as mala prohibita. This difference is not true for marijuana use. T HE MAJOR HYPOTHESES relating to deterrence are that the incidence of deviant behaviour is inversely re-lated to the celerity, certainty, and severity of punishment. The quicker, the more certain, and the more se-vere the punishment, the lower is
According to the principles of retributive justice, punishment is supposed to be more or less in proportion to the magnitude of a crime. So-which do you think is an appropriate punishment for the Wall Street executives whose greed and corruption not only bankrupted their own companies, but set in motion a meltdown that has deprived millions of Americans of their homes and their life savings, driven millions more into unemployment and poverty, and triggered economic chaos, political unrest, and even starvation and death around the world? A. Dont give them a bonus this year.. B. Fire their asses.. C. Lock them up and throw away the key.. If you answered A, you are in line with the policies of the Obama administration, which, after giving billions in bailout money to the likes of AIG, discovered that the company intends to pay out millions in executive bonuses. The administrations response has been to get really, really pissed off, and say that they just arent going to stand for these guys ...

Course back to the punishment that my adult babies get for smacking on the bare leg isnt my thing. I am more into the discomfort punishments shall we say. The things that will have you sit up and pay attention. Like when you talk back to me in that sassy baby talk I will take a bar of soap and wash out your mouth.

Birth Registration: A child is a citizen by birth in the country if at least one parent is a citizen. The government also may grant citizenship by birth to a child born in the country if the child would otherwise be stateless. Citizenship also derives by birth abroad to a citizen parent who either was born in the country or resided there at least three years. By law children without a birth certificate may not attend primary schools, but authorities did not strictly enforce this law.. Child Abuse: Law and tradition prohibit abuse of children, but both tolerate corporal punishment. The law prohibits corporal punishment in schools; a teacher convicted of corporal punishment of a student may face a maximum one year prison term.. The government aggressively prosecuted reported cases of child abuse.. Press reports indicated an increase in child abuse reports, especially of incest and indecent assault cases; the rise appeared to be due to citizens increased awareness of the importance of reporting ...
In many prisons and jails across the U.S., punishment can come in the form of a bland, brownish lump. Known as nutraloaf, or simply "the loaf,"
The code, which would also serve as a model for other colonies, went even further. The law imposed harsh physical punishments, since enslaved persons who did not own property could not be required to pay fines. It stated that slaves needed written permission to leave their plantation, that slaves found guilty of murder or rape would be hanged, that for robbing or any other major offence, the slave would receive sixty lashes and be placed in stocks, where his or her ears would be cut off, and that for minor offences, such as associating with whites, slaves would be whipped, branded, or maimed ...
Thus in one sentence the UNSC absolved itself of any responsibility toward the people of Iraq. The question which has not been answered after almost nine years of sanctions and more than one million deaths is whether the indifference of Saddam Hussein to the plight of his people can justify the UNSCs own violations of the human rights of an entire population. But Saddam Husseins failure to comply with UNSC resolutions should not give the UNSC a license to abrogate its independent obligations to respect the human rights of the Iraqi people. In other words the UNSC has effectively given itself the liberty to impose collective punishment on an entire population for the decisions of its leader (Center for Economic and Social Rights 1996: 33-38).. It is important to keep in mind that in the case of Iraq the destructive impact of the sanctions regime has been intensified because of the war damage to the infrastructure, and, has disproportionately affected children. As was stated earlier hundreds of ...
Altruism vs. Aggression - Is It in Our DNA?. Ive been thinking a lot about altruism lately. With everything going on in the world, its hard not to. Hurricane Irene stormed into our lives right before Labor Day and wiped out many communities near me. No one expected a hurricane to inflict such punishment on little villages in the Catskill Mountains of New York but thats what happened.. At our house, we tried to tough it out but we surrendered as the winds picked up and we realized that way too many trees were leaning longingly toward our roof. We packed up four cats and took shelter in a Holiday Inn about fifteen minutes away. What we found there was a 21st century Noahs Ark. Dogs grinned at us from balconies on the second floor. Cats peered out of windows into the courtyard. And the people, local evacuees mingled with shellshocked refugees from Long Island, Staten Island and Brooklyn, huddled together sharing whatever updates we had. And we shared what we had.. Phyllis, whose home was ...
Those of you with juvenile clients might find this new paper interesting. The full title is: And if Your Friends Jumped Off a Bridge Would You Do it Too? How Developmental Neuroscience Can Inform Legal Regimes Governing Adolescents. Here is the abstract:. Legal models of adolescent autonomy and responsibility in various domains of law span a spectrum from categorical prohibitions of certain behaviors to recognitions of total adolescent autonomy. The piecemeal approach to the limited decision-making capacity of adolescents lacks an empirical foundation in the differences between adolescent and adult decision-making, leading to counterintuitive and inconsistent legal outcomes. The law limits adolescent autonomy with respect to some decisions that adolescents are perfectly competent to make, and in other areas, the law attributes adult responsibility and imposes adult punishments on adolescents for making decisions that implicate their unique volitional vulnerabilities. As developmental ...

Heres the prob: Whats extreme child abuse?. The bible says disobedient children should be stoned. It also says that we should beat children (the old spare the rod verse thats oft misquoted).. So people who beat their children ARE following Biblical standard. People who kill their disobedient children ARE following Biblical standard.. I was raised in a church that told the adults that beating a child with a belt (beating, not paddling. I dont consider spanking as child abuse. Counter-productive? Yes. But not abuse.) was what god wanted. The pastors son often told us of the abuse he put up with from his father. His father based his discipline in the Bible. And us, as kids, believed this because its right there in the Good Book.. Also, women were frequently murdered for promiscuity and being a rape vic. These werent considered abuses. IN some cultures, this is still legal.. Beating females (this hardly ever happens to males) for having underage sex happens a LOT more in the U.S. than you ...

This course considers whether the application of the death penalty in America meets that standard. In particular, the class will be guided by the following types of questions: What crimes are eligible for the sentence of death? How are decisions made about who receives a sentence of death? Is there racism in our system of capital punishment? Why are people in favor of or opposed to capital punishment? What role does possible incentive have in discussions about the death penalty? What is the purpose of a system of capital punishment ...
Once common in the British Army and British Royal Navy as a means of discipline, flagellation also featured prominently in the British penal colonies in early colonial Australia. Given that convicts in Australia were already imprisoned, punishments for offenses committed there could not usually result in imprisonment and thus usually consisted of corporal punishment such as hard labour or flagellation. Unlike Roman times, British law explicitly forbade the combination of corporal and capital punishment; thus, a convict was either flogged or hanged but never both. Flagellation took place either with a single whip or, more notoriously, with the cat o nine tails. Typically, the offenders upper half was bared and he was suspended by the wrists beneath a tripod of wooden beams (known as the triangle). In many cases, the offenders feet barely touched ground, which helped to stretch the skin taut and increase the damage inflicted by the whip. It also centered the offenders weight in his ...
Finally to make sure the effects of reinforcement/punishment werent specific to learning an operant task the mice were also tested for place preference. In a place preference test an imaginary line divides the cage in half and only one side of the cage activates illumination.. The results were consistent with the previous findings with operant training; the reinforced dMSN mice learned faster and gave stronger responses as well as proved to be far more resistant during the extinction test. Like with the operant task, punished iMSN mice lost all preference during the extinction trial.. In short, reinforced (dMSN) mice learned faster, showed stronger responses, were more resistant to extinction. The punishment mediated pathway (iMSN) gave weak responses between trials and within trials, it was the behavior was prone to extinction.. If you must choose then choose wisely.. REFERENCES.

The Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled on November 21 that forfeiture is punishment for purposes of the Fifth Amendments Double Jeopardy prohibition, joining the Sixth and the Ninth Circuits (U.S. v. Perez, No. 94-60788, 70 F.3d 345 (5th Cir. 1995)).. Gloria Perez was arrested after Border Patrol agents found 96 kilograms of marijuana in her car. After Perez was indicted, the government moved to seize her car, which she forfeited. She then filed for dismissal of the indictment.. The court looked to U.S. Supreme Court decisions in U.S. v. Halper, 490 U.S. 435 (1989) and Austin v. U.S., 113 S. Ct. 2801 (1993), finding that both the forfeiture and the prosecution were meant to punish Perez for the same offense. In a concurring opinion, Judge Carolyn Dineen King noted that the circumstances of the Perez case are common, and the practical consequences [of double jeopardy applications] to the administration of justice are enormous. She recommended that the Supreme Court revisit the area of ...
An examination of the enormous changes in Chinese society in the first half of the 20th century through the lens of the Chinese prison system. More than a simple history of prison rules or penal administration, the text offers a social and cultural analysis of the Chinese prison system that explores the profound effects and lasting repercussions of superimposing Western-derived models of repentance and rehabilitation on traditional categories of crime and punishment. Frank Dikotter explores penal reform as a radical modern tool to achieve a traditional Chinese vision of social cohesion and the rule of virtue. He also offers insights into daily life behind bars. A world of petty villains, abusive guards, ambitious wardens and idealist reformers is revealed, giving flesh and bone to the more general story of the prison in China. Based on research and different sources, this is a cultural history of crime and of the prison, opening a window into a little-known aspect of late-19th- and early-20th-century

Juries in criminal cases typically decide if someone is guilty, then a judge determines a suitable level of punishment. New research confirms that these two separate assessments of guilt and punishment - though related - are calculated in different parts of the brain. In fact, researchers found that they can disrupt and change one decision without affecting the other.. New work by researchers at Vanderbilt University and Harvard University confirms that a specific area of the brain, the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, is crucial to punishment decisions. Researchers predicted and found that by altering brain activity in this brain area, they could change how subjects punished hypothetical defendants without changing the amount of blame placed on the defendants.. We were able to significantly change the chain of decision-making and reduce punishment for crimes without affecting blameworthiness, said René Marois, professor and chair of psychology at Vanderbilt and co-principal author of the ...

Built on in-depth interviews with movement leaders and the records of key abolitionist organizations, this work traces the struggle against capital punishment in the United States since 1972. Haines reviews the legal battles that led to the short-lived suspension of the death penalty and examines the subsequent conservative turn in the courts that has forced death penalty opponents to rely less on litigation strategies and more on political action.
Introduction. Discussions regarding the notion of discipline are often permeated with references to corporal punishment or are even synonymous with discussions of corporal punishment (Parker-Jenkins, 1997). Such discussions sometimes lead to discussions of human rights. However, our point of departure is positive ways of maintaining discipline (Parker-Jenkins, 2002). We will argue that maintaining positive discipline in multicultural school environments partly relies on the infusion of human rights values that are neither solely universally nor particularistically interpreted. Early in our research project, it became evident that some teachers believe that discipline can only be maintained through the elevation of cultural values (particularism) (Roux, Du Preez, Ferguson, Jarvis, Small & Smith, 2009). One reason for this phenomenon could be that people in many instances see traditional, cultural values as preferable to emancipatory, human rights values (Du Preez, 2008:98-99). This could lead to ...

Posner has a good discussion of the various issue related to capital punishment. I will concentrate my comments on deterrence, which is really the crucial issue in the acrimonious debate over capital punishment. I support the use of capital punishment for persons convicted of murder because, and only because, I believe it deters murders. If I did not believe that, I would be opposed because revenge and the other possible motives that are mentioned and discussed by Posner, should not be a basis for public policy. As Posner indicates, serious empirical research on capital punishment began with Isaac Ehrlichs pioneering...

When he invited me to post about crime and punishment, Eugene suggested that I might want to finish up with a response to comments. So let me offer two general remarks, and some specific responses.. In general:. A. I cant read Eugenes mind, but I suspect that he invited me to guest-blog (despite our basic disagreements) for the same reason that I regularly follow this blog and other libertarian and conservative information channels. The basic lesson of Bayesian analysis is that you can learn only from information that disconfirms some part of your current belief set. But of course the natural tendency of the mind is to minimize cognitive dissonance by accepting confirming evidence and rejecting disconfirming evidence, and that tendency is emphasized when beliefs get to be badges of group membership.. This is a deeply unhealthy tendency, and it tends to defeat one of the basic evolutionary strategies of homo sapiens, which Karl Popper summed up as letting our beliefs die in our place. ...
