Statistical models which describe the relationship between a qualitative dependent variable (that is, one which can take only certain discrete values, such as the presence or absence of a disease) and an independent variable. A common application is in epidemiology for estimating an individual's risk (probability of a disease) as a function of a given risk factor.
A form of discrimination in the workplace which violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Sexual harassment takes two forms: quid pro quo, where the employee must submit to sexual advances in exchange for job benefits or be penalized for refusing; or a hostile environment, where the atmosphere of the workplace is offensive and affects the employee's well-being. Offensive sexual conduct may include unwelcome advances, comments, touching, questions about marital status and sex practices, etc. Both men and women may be aggressors or victims. (Slee and Slee, Health Care Terms, 2d ed, p.404). While civil rights legislation deals with sexual harassment in the workplace, the behavior is not restricted to this; it may take place outside the work environment: in schools and colleges, athletics, and other social milieus and activities.

Child Reactive Disorders
Factors associated with the definitive onset of a disease, illness, accident, behavioral response, or course of action. Usually one factor is more important or more obviously recognizable than others, if several are involved, and one may often be regarded as "necessary". Examples include exposure to specific disease; amount or level of an infectious organism, drug, or noxious agent, etc.
A primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking, most notably denial. Each of these symptoms may be continuous or periodic. (Morse & Flavin for the Joint Commission of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence and the American Society of Addiction Medicine to Study the Definition and Criteria for the Diagnosis of Alcoholism: in JAMA 1992;268:1012-4)
Psychoanalytic theory focusing on interpretation of behavior in reference to self. (From APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Terms, 1994) This elaboration of the psychoanalytic concepts of narcissism and the self, was developed by Heinz Kohut, and stresses the importance of the self-awareness of excessive needs for approval and self-gratification.

Bioterrorism alleging use of anthrax and interim guidelines for management--United States, 1998. (1/1954)From October 30 through December 23, 1998, CDC received reports of a series of bioterroristic threats of anthrax exposure. Letters alleged to contain anthrax were sent to health clinics on October 30, 1998, in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. During December 17-23 in California, a letter alleged to contain anthrax was sent to a private business, and three telephone threats of anthrax contamination of ventilation systems were made to private and public buildings. All threats were hoaxes and are under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and local law enforcement officials. The public health implications of these threats were investigated to assist in developing national public health guidelines for responding to bioterrorism. This report summarizes the findings of these investigations and provides interim guidance for public health authorities on bioterrorism related to anthrax. (+info)
Marijuana use among minority youths living in public housing developments. (2/1954)Youths residing in public housing developments appear to be at markedly heightened risk for drug use because of their constant exposure to violence, poverty, and drug-related activity. The purpose of this study was to develop and test a model of marijuana etiology with adolescents (N = 624) residing in public housing. African-American and Hispanic seventh graders completed questionnaires about their marijuana use, social influences to smoke marijuana, and sociodemographic and psychosocial characteristics. Results indicated that social influences, such as friends' marijuana use and perceived ease of availability of marijuana, significantly predicted both occasional and future use of marijuana. Individual characteristics such as antimarijuana attitudes and drug refusal skills also predicted marijuana use. The findings imply that effective prevention approaches that target urban youths residing in public housing developments should provide them with an awareness of social influences to use marijuana, correct misperceptions about the prevalence of marijuana smoking, and train adolescents in relevant psychosocial skills.

Developing a plan for primary health care facilities in Soweto, South Africa. Part I: Guiding principles and methods. (3/1954)The new political era in South Africa offers unique opportunities for the development of more equitable health care policies. However, resource constraints are likely to remain in the foreseeable future, and efficiency therefore remains an important concern. This article describes the guiding principles and methods used to develop a coherent and objective plan for comprehensive primary health care facilities in Soweto. The article begins with an overview of the context within which the research was undertaken. Problems associated with planning in transition are highlighted, and a participatory research approach is recommended as a solution to these problems. The article goes on to describe how the research methods were developed and applied in line with the principles of participatory research. The methods were essentially rapid appraisal techniques which included group discussions, detailed checklists, observation, record reviews and the adaptation of international and local guidelines for service planning. It is suggested that these methods could be applied to other urban areas in South Africa and elsewhere, and that they are particularly appropriate in periods of transition when careful facilitation of dialogue between stakeholders is required in tandem with the generation of rapid results for policy-makers.

Measuring intermediate outcomes of violence prevention programs targeting African-American male youth: an exploratory assessment of the psychometric properties of six psychosocial measures. (4/1954)This study examined the psychometric properties of six psychosocial measures that may be useful indicators of intermediate outcomes of violence prevention programs targeting African-American male youth. Baseline and 6 month follow-up survey data are used from 223 African-American male 12-16 year olds participating in a violence prevention program evaluation study. The constructs of interest are beliefs supporting aggression, aggressive conflict-resolution style, hostility, ethnic identity, self-esteem and hopelessness. Each construct is measured as a multi-item scale. Exploratory factor analysis results provided limited support for the unidimensionality of these scales, thus suggesting that further scale development is warranted. Reliability coefficients for the scales ranged from 0.55 to 0.80. Bivariate analyses with baseline data indicate that all six measures have construct and criterion-related validity, as they are associated with each other and with four behavioral criteria in the expected directions. Predictive validity was also demonstrated for beliefs supporting aggression, aggressive conflict-resolution style, hostility and hopelessness which were associated with weapon-carrying behaviors measured in the 6 month follow-up survey both before and after controlling for corresponding behaviors measured in the baseline survey.

Darryl, a cartoon-based measure of cardinal posttraumatic stress symptoms in school-age children. (5/1954)OBJECTIVES: This report examines the reliability and validity of Darryl, a cartoon-based measure of the cardinal symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). METHODS: We measured exposure to community violence through the reports of children and their parents and then administered Darryl to a sample of 110 children aged 7 to 9 residing in urban neighborhoods with high crime rates. RESULTS: Darryl's reliability is excellent overall and is acceptable for the reexperiencing, avoidance, and arousal subscales, considered separately. Child reports of exposure to community violence were significantly associated with child reports of PTSD symptoms. CONCLUSIONS: Darryl possesses acceptable psychometric properties in a sample of children with frequent exposure to community violence. (+info)
What pediatricians can do to further youth violence prevention--a qualitative study. (6/1954)OBJECTIVE: Youth violence is a public health problem world wide. However, the United States has the worst rate of youth violence among industralized countries. This study was conducted to learn what pediatricians, community leaders, and parents think the doctor's role is in youth violence prevention during the well-child examination for children. METHODS: Interviews were conducted with pediatricians, community leaders, and parents living or working in Los Angeles, California. RESULTS: All three groups interviewed believed that the physician should incorporate violence prevention counseling as part of the well-child examination. The mechanism of action differed for the three groups. Almost half of pediatricians' statements focused on their role as prevention counselor, with respect to such issues as appropriate discipline and gun safety. One third of community leaders' statements, however, related to physician referral to existing community resources. More than half of parents' statements referred to the pediatrician as someone who can directly educate their child about making positive choices. CONCLUSIONS: Although pediatricians cannot solve the problem of youth violence alone, findings from this study suggest that they should address this issue with their patients and should work in tandem with existing community resources to further a solution to this growing epidemic.

A new paradigm of injury intentionality. (7/1954)OBJECTIVE: To improve understanding of processes leading to injury and assess more specifically the degree of intentionality. METHODS: A new paradigm was developed that characterizes the act of inflicting injury (self, other, not inflicted) and the motive. Motives are determined for the act of injury and for the outcome. To test this, 986 cases of adolescent injuries in seven hospitals were reviewed. Three investigators independently classified all cases using the new paradigm and three used standard definitions of intent. Inter-rater reliability was measured. RESULTS: Of injuries inflicted by others, 61% were intentional using the standard classification. In the new paradigm 67% were intended acts and 59% involved intentional motive for outcome. Altogether 87% of sports injuries were coded as unintentional acts compared with 96% using standard methods. Using standard classification there was 93% agreement between paired raters, with an average kappa of 0.86. In the new paradigm questions on intentionality of act, outcome, and infliction of act, the agreement was 89%, 91%, 88%, with a kappa of 0.79, 0.80, 0.76, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: This paradigm defines a spectrum of injury intent, enhances understanding of the causal sequence of injury, and has important implications for research and prevention. (+info)
Evaluating the impact of a street barrier on urban crime. (8/1954)OBJECTIVES: Violence is a major urban public health problem in the United States. The impact of a physical barrier placed across a street in a public housing project to prevent street violence and drug activity was evaluated. METHODS: Hartford Police Department data on violent and drug related crime incidence within the housing project containing the barrier were analyzed by use of a computerized geographic information system. RESULTS: Violent crime decreased 33% on the intervention street during the 15 month period after erection of the barrier, compared with the 15 month period before erection of the barrier, but there was no change in drug related crime. On adjoining streets and surrounding blocks, violent crime decreased 30%-50% but drug related crimes roughly doubled. A non-adjacent area of the housing project and the entire city experienced 26% and 15% decreases in violent crimes, and 414% and 25% increases in drug crimes, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The barrier decreased violent crime but displaced drug crimes to surrounding areas of the housing project. These results have important implications for other cities that have erected or are considering erecting similar barriers. (+info)
Emergency Medicine: Competencies for Youth Violence Prevention and Control
Lyndee Knox, PhD, Department of Family Medicine, University of Southern California, 1975 Zonal Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90089, 323-4421329, [email protected] While homicide and suicide are the second and third leading causes of death in youths 15 24 years of age in the United States, public health and health care professionals have been slow to identify a role in the prevention of youth violence. A multi-disciplinary task force was convened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-funded Southern California Center of Academic Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention and the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California to define competencies for health professionals in youth violence prevention and control. Three levels of competence were identified: the generalist level, which should be obtained by all health professionals; the specialist level, which should be obtained by health professionals such as emergency medicine and primary care providers who frequently work ...

Violence-Related Behaviors in Adolescents - Child Advocate - Helping Parents and Professionals
June 2004-. Violent behavior among adolescents is a significant problem worldwide, and a cross-national comparison of adolescent violent behaviors can provide information about the development and pattern of physical violence in young adolescents. Smith-Khuri and colleagues examined frequencies of adolescent violence-related behaviors in 5 countries and associations between violence-related behaviors and potential explanatory characteristics.. A significant body of information currently exists describing violent behavior in the adolescent population of the United States, yet violent behavior in adolescents outside and in relation to the United States is not well characterized. Comparison of violence-related behaviors in US youths with those of their peers in other countries can provide a context for the US findings. Our analysis found that for 3 violence-related behaviors-fighting, weapon carrying, and injuries from fighting-adolescents from 5 European countries were remarkably similar in ...

VAW - Indicators on violence against women
In 2006, the General Assembly, in resolution 61/143, requested the Statistical Commission to develop and propose, in consultation with the Commission on the Status of Women, and building on the work of the Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences, a set of possible indicators on violence against women in order to assist States in assessing the scope, prevalence and incidence of violence against women.. In order to support the work of the Statistical Commission and the Commission on the Status of Women, an expert group meeting on indicators to measure violence against women was convened from 8 to 10 October 2007 by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UN ECE), the United Nations Division for the Advancement of Women (UN DAW) and United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD).

Expectations of youth victims of violence regarding health care professionals leading them to wellness in South Africa
Introduction. Youth violence is a global public health challenge which has grim and long-term effects on the physical, mental, and social health of youth (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2015:171). Youth violence contributes considerably to the increased incidence of injury, disability and untimely deaths amongst young populations (World Health Organization 2015). Worldwide an estimated 200 000 homicides occur annually amongst youth between the ages of ten and 29 as a result of violence, accounting for 43% of the total number of killings globally each year, and for each youth who is murdered about 20 to 40 more sustain injuries that require medical treatment (World Health Organization 2015).. Violence amongst youth is described as the participation of young people, either as victims or perpetrators, in incidents that involve the threat or use of physical force in the context of interpersonal, inter-communal or other conflict, or crime (Graham, Bruce & Perold 2010:38). Some examples of ...
Abstract: Applying the Theory of Planned Behavior to Sexual Violence Prevention (Society for Social Work and Research 17th...
Title: Applying the Theory of Planned Behavior to Sexual Violence Prevention. Background and Purpose: Social workers encounter millions of women and girls affected by gender-based sexual violence. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) as holding particular promise for sexual violence prevention. According to the TPB, behavioral intent is comprised of the following facets: individuals behavioral beliefs, normative beliefs, subjective norms, situational control beliefs which results in perceived behavioral control. Behavioral intent, in the TPB, is considered the indicator that a person is ready or has the intent to perform a given behavior. While TPB has been used to predict and explain other health-related behaviors (e.g. smoking), there is no empirical work applying the theory to sexual violence prevention. The aim of this study is to apply TPB for the purpose of program evaluation pertaining to a sexual violence program which ...

Violence risk assessment in psychiatric patients in China: A systematic review. - Department of Psychiatry
OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to undertake a systematic review on violence risk assessment instruments used for psychiatric patients in China. METHODS: A systematic search was conducted from 1980 until 2014 to identify studies that used psychometric tools or structured instruments to assess aggression and violence risk. Information from primary studies was extracted, including demographic characteristics of the samples used, study design characteristics, and reliability and validity estimates. RESULTS: A total of 30 primary studies were identified that investigated aggression or violence; 6 reported on tools assessing aggression while an additional 24 studies reported on structured instruments designed to predict violence. Although measures of reliability were typically good, estimates of predictive validity were mostly in the range of poor to moderate, with only 1 study finding good validity. These estimates were typically lower than that found in previous work for Western samples. CONCLUSION:
Risk factors in adolescents involvement in violent behaviours | Emerald Insight
- The purpose of this paper is to examine risk factors associated with Western Australian secondary school students involvement in violence-related behaviours. , - This cross-sectional study examined data collected using an anonymous self-completion questionnaire from 542 school students aged 13-17 years. The questionnaire measured risk factors associated with being a perpetrator and/or victim of violence-related behaviours. , - Gender was significantly associated with being a victim and perpetrator of violence-related behaviours. Males were significantly more likely than females to be a victim of threatening and physical violence at school, and to be a perpetrator of physical violence at school and in the community. Males were significantly more likely than females to watch violent media, with exposure to violent media associated with physically hurting someone at school. Students involved in greater acts of animal cruelty had increased odds of being involved in all forms of the violence measured. , -

Alcohol and violence at home - Healthcanal.com : Healthcanal.com
This question is complex and contested.. In New South Wales, 82.1 per cent of domestic violence offenders are male, according to the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research. Male violence against their intimate partners is endemic in all societies - including those where drinking alcohol to excess is not as much a part of the national psyche as it is in Australia.. Not all acts of violence by men - against their partners or others - involve alcohol. Many men drink and drink heavily but do not go on to abuse their partners. Many will drink heavily in public but only hit out when they get home.. However, alcohol misuse is a constant feature in a high proportion of domestic violence incidents recorded by police. In NSW, between 2001-2010, alcohol was present in 41 per cent of police-recorded domestic assaults; in one year alone, this figure was up to two-thirds in the remote Far West region. And not all domestic violence offences are reported to police.. A 2004 national survey found one in ...
Violence among Cocaine and Simultaneous Cocaine and Alcohol Abusers: R by Sameer Imtiaz
A population known for substantial violence is the substance abuse treatment population. This study assessed: (1) extent of violence, (2) personality and mental health correlates of violence, and (3) sex differences in correlates of violence. Data were obtained from the Patterns and Consequences of Cocaine and Alcohol Use for Substance Abuse Treatment Clients Study (N = 403). Logistic regression with backward elimination procedures and modified Poisson regression were used to assess the study objectives. Violence was reported by 44% of treatment clients. Furthermore, number of other drugs used per week (RR: 1.124, 95% CI: 1.063 - 1.189) and aggressive personality (RR: 1.043, 95% CI: 1.031 - 1.055) were significantly associated with an increased likelihood of violence. Finally, there was no evidence for sex-differences in correlates of violence. These findings suggest that screening for violence and addressing pertinent risk factors during treatment may be needed to reduce violence within this population
ABSTRACT: Purpose To assess whether determinants of violence operate as risk factors, direct protective factors, or both during adolescence and young adulthood. Methods Data from participants in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, aged 13 years at Wave 1, were analyzed. Individual, family, school, peer, and community factors during adolescence (Wave 1 ; age 13 years) were examined as predictors of violence involvement during adolescence (Wave 2 ; age 14 years) and in young adulthood (Wave 3 [2001-2002]; ages 18-20 years). Results Twelve percent of participants aged 14 years and 8% of participants aged 18-20 years reported serious violence involvement during the past 12 months. Bivariate analyses revealed risk and direct protective factors for violence at both time points. Risk for violence at age 14 years was increased by earlier attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms, low school connectedness, low grade-point average, and high peer delinquency. ...

Focus Areas - Public Health Institute
We must change how we talk about community violence in order to ensure community safety. In conjunction with Prevention Institute, community leaders and violence prevention advocates in Northern California, PHIs Berkeley Media Studies Group (BMSG) explored what it will take to change the discourse on violence, with a focus on the news media.. First, BMSG and partners worked with community violence prevention leaders to identify specific, solutions-oriented frames missing from the current discourse on violence. BMSG then conducted a news analysis of how those frames appeared in California papers from 2013-2015. Using this novel methodology, BMSG evaluated news from different sectors to identify opportunities for journalists to elevate community violence prevention. This research was then presented at convenings with community leaders to get their input and draft additional tools for action.. BMSGs research uncovered trends in how community violence and safety are framed in California ...

This week, city officials unveiled plans to address the recent teen violence that has outraged and horrified residents of Philadelphia. In Center City, where many attacks took place, anyone under 18 are now subject to a 9 p.m. curfew on weekends. Twenty of the citys largest recreation centers will be open until 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays in an effort to give teenagers places to go. In Center City and University City, police are being deployed in large numbers. - Allison Steele, Philadelphia Inquirer
Retro Report provides reminder of When Youth Violence Spurred Superpredator Fear.
Social scientists like James A. Fox, a criminologist, warned of a blood bath of violence that could soon wash over the land. That fear, verging on panic, is the subject of this weeks segment of Retro Report, a series of video documentaries that examine major news stories from years ago and explore what has happened since.. What happened with the superpredator jeremiads is that they proved to be nonsense. They were based on a notion that there would be hordes upon hordes of depraved teenagers resorting to unspeakable brutality, not tethered by conscience. No one in the mid-1990s promoted this theory with greater zeal, or with broader acceptance, than John J. DiIulio Jr., then a political scientist at Princeton. Chaos was upon us, Mr. DiIulio proclaimed back then in scholarly articles and television interviews. The demographics, he said, were inexorable. Politicians from both major parties, though more so on the right, picked up the cry. Many news organizations pounced on these sensational ...
Over My Shoulder #33: from the introduction to Color of Violence: The Incite! Anthology
Angela Daviss story illustrates the manner in which women of color experience violence perpetrated both by individuals and by the state. Since the first domestic violence shelter in the United States opened in 1974, and the first rape crisis center opened in 1972, the mainstream antiviolence movement has been critical in breaking the silence around violence against women, and in providing essential services to survivors of sexual/domestic violence. Initially, the antiviolence movement prioritized a response to male violence based on grassroots political mobilization. However, as the antiviolence movement has gained greater prominence, domestic violence and rape crisis centers have also become increasingly professionalized, and as a result are often reluctant to address sexual and domestic violence within the larger context of institutionalized violence.. In addition, rape crisis centers and shelters increasingly rely on state and federal sources for their funding. Consequently, their approaches ...

Prevalence and correlates of physical violence and rape among female sex workers in Ethiopia: a cross-sectional study with...
According to this study, 17.5% of FSWs in Ethiopia had been physically beaten within the last 12 months and 15.2% had been raped since they started selling sex. Age, sex-selling venues and high consumption of alcohol and khat were significant predictors of physical violence (beating). On the other hand, the significant predictors of sexual violence (rape) were low income and high consumption of alcohol and khat.. The prevalence of both physical violence and sexual violence (rape) was lower than the prevalence found in studies conducted in Uganda, Ivory Coast and Kenya.9 12 30 32 However, when compared with the studies conducted in Adama (Ethiopia), China, India and Mexico, the current study reported a higher prevalence of both physical and sexual violence.10 11 13 14 33 The difference in the definition of violence used might be one of the possible explanations for the difference between the current result and those found in other studies in Africa. Most of the studies assessed all forms of ...

State monopoly on violence -- Britannica Online Encyclopedia
As the use of the term legitimate underlines, this concept does not imply that the state is the only actor actually using violence but rather that it is the only actor that can legitimately authorize its use. The state can grant another actor the right to use violence without losing its monopoly, as long as it remains the only source of the right to use violence and that it maintains the capacity to enforce this monopoly. The state monopoly on the legitimate use of violence is also not refuted by the use of illegitimate violence. Criminal organizations may undermine order without being able to challenge the state monopoly and establish themselves as a parallel source of legitimate rule. ...

Saúde Pública - Percepciones y experiencias en torno a la violencia en estudiantes de secundaria en la zona urbana de Jamaica...
Neighborhood violence and school violence factors both varied significantly. For neighborhood violence, boys, older students, and those with poorer socioeconomic status reported higher violence, as shown by the higher mean factor scores in Table 3. More school violence was also reported by boys (as indicated by a lower school violence factor score). However, in contrast with the neighborhood violence scores, students from higher socioeconomic levels reported more school violence. Students from all-age schools/junior high schools reported higher neighborhood and school violence as compared with students from technical high schools/comprehensive high schools. In turn, those students from technical high schools/comprehensive high schools reported significantly more neighborhood and school violence than did students attending secondary high schools. The perceptions of acceptable behavior factor appeared to be very consistent; the scores did not vary significantly by gender, age, grade, socioeconomic ...

Cost of Community Violence to Hospitals and Health Systems | AHA
Violence in our communities is a serious public health issue, and as such, it is of great concern to hospitals that care for victims of violence and also prepare for possible mass events. While a review of prior research shows that numerous efforts from a range of perspectives have been made to quantify the impact of violence to various stakeholders, a comprehensive estimate of the financial impact to community healthcare resources, specifically hospitals and health systems, has not been accomplished. The American Hospital Association (AHA) has engaged Milliman to conduct a study of the financial impact to hospitals and health systems of dealing with all types of violence within their facilities and communities to better illustrate the enormity of violence as a public health problem. For the purposes of this study, we define violence broadly, to include any intentional use of physical force to cause injury or bodily harm. This report presents the findings of our research.. Hospitals provide ...

WHO | Violence against women
25 November 2015 -- Although anyone can be a victim of violence, including children and women and men of all ages, figures indicate that one in three women globally have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by an intimate partner or sexual violence by someone other than a partner in their lifetime. Situations of conflict, post conflict and displacement may exacerbate existing forms of violence and present additional forms of violence against women. In the past 20 years, increasing attention has been paid to ending impunity for perpetrators of sexual violence in conflict-affected settings and to achieving assistance and justice for victims. Strengthening the medico-legal response is an important contribution to this. ...

Mental Health Update: Man hands on misery to man - the effects of interpersonal violence on children
Research has shown that there is a link between child abuse and mental-health problems and a study of 3,023 people in Paris has suggested that violence between parents could also have an effect on the mental health of their children. Among the particpants in the study 16% said that they had witnessed inter-parental violence by the age of 18. Witnessing violence was eight times more likely where the parents were alcoholics and more likely in families with financial problems, serious parental disease, housing problems and unemployment. After adjusting for other factors the researchers found that children who were exposed to interparental violence were 1.4x more likely to have depression, 1.75 times more likely to be alcoholics, three times more likely to be involved in conjugal violence themselves and five times more likely to mistreat their own children ...

NTNU Open: Domestic Violence and Pregnancy in Nepal - Perceptions, Prevalence, Birth Preparedness and Perinatal Outcomes
Distinct gender-related social norms and behaviors influence inequalities between men and women and build the foundation for gender-based violence. Violence against women is a major public health problem in all societies, and a violation of human rights. Surveys have shown that approximately one-third of all women worldwide have experienced such violence, and it is most prevalent in Southeast Asia. In Nepal, domestic violence perpetrated either by husbands or by inlaws in extended families is the most prevalent form of gender-based violence, also against pregnant women. Domestic violence in pregnancy is associated with maternal and child morbidity and mortality. In a developing country such as Nepal, where domestic violence is underreported due to various reasons, antenatal clinics provide a unique opportunity to address the needs of female survivors exposed to violence. The study on which this thesis is based aimed to explore perceptions of domestic violence within a Nepalese community, the ...

Assessing Violence | Society of Clinical Psychology
Clinical prediction of violence remains challenging for all mental health professionals. Results of recent research have underscored the importance of identifying factors and base rates that are associated with the risk of violence in various populations and in various settings. Risk factors may be static, such as gender, age, a history of violence against others or a history of having been victimized. Or risk factors may be dynamic, such as the presence of an acute mood disorder. In general, taking a complete history with the voluntary outpatient will reveal the presence of any static violence risk factors. As the therapeutic alliance develops, dynamic risk factors may also be revealed. Dynamic risk factors, unlike static risk factors, by definition, require repeated measurement, as these factors will be the ones most promising for intervention.. Research on violence risk demonstrates that any violence risk factor will depend upon the context in which that factor appears. For example, expressed ...
Developing a Response to Family Violence in Primary Health Care: The New Zealand Experience
Background: Despite primary health care being recognised as an ideal setting to effectively respond to those experiencing family violence, responses are not widely integrated as part of routine health care. A lack of evidence testing models and approaches for health sector integration, alongside challenges of transferability and sustainability, means the best approach in responding to family violence is still unknown. The Primary Health Care Family Violence Responsiveness Evaluation Tool was developed as a guide to implement a formal systems-led response to family violence within New Zealand primary health care settings. Given the difficulties integrating effective, sustainable responses to family violence, we share the experience of primary health care sites that embarked on developing a response to family violence, presenting the enablers, barriers and resources required to maintain, progress and sustain family violence response development. Methods: In this qualitative descriptive study data ...

We invite our Texas A&M and surrounding communities to engage in discussion and learning opportunities this October to better serve themselves and others, and understand how other public health issues, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, ...
Sexual Violence within the Sierra Leone Conflict | Human Rights Watch
International Law. Perpetrators. Consequences of Sexual Violence. Care for Victims. Protection of Civilians in Sierra Leone Today. Impunity. Recommendations Throughout the nine-year Sierra Leonean conflict there has been widespread and systematic sexual violence against women and girls including individual and gang rape, sexual assault with objects such as firewood, umbrellas and sticks, and sexual slavery. In thousands of cases, sexual violence has been followed by the abduction of women and girls and forced bondage to male combatants in slavery-like conditions often accompanied by forced labor. These sexual crimes are most often characterized by extraordinary brutality and are frequently preceded or followed by violent acts against other family members. The rebel factions use sexual violence as a weapon to terrorize, humiliate, punish and ultimately control the civilian population into submission. The perpetration of sexual violence is often marked by the systematic breaking of taboos and ...

Intimate partner violence… - University of Gothenburg, Sweden
Background: Intimate partner violence (IPV) is an important public health issue with severe adverse consequences. Population-based data on IPV from Muslim societies are scarce, and Pakistan is no exception. This study was conducted among women residing in urban Karachi, to estimate the prevalence and frequency of different forms of IPV and their associations with sociodemographic factors. Methods: This cross-sectional community-based study was conducted using a structured questionnaire developed by the World Health Organisation for research on violence. Community midwives conducted face-to-face interviews with 759 married women aged 25-60 years. Results: Self-reported past-year and lifetime prevalence of physical violence was 56.3 and 57.6%, respectively; the corresponding figures for sexual violence were 53.4% and 54.5%, and for psychological abuse were 81.8% and 83.6%. Violent incidents were mostly reported to have occurred on more than three occasions during the lifetime. Risk factors for ...
Early-onset substance abuse and community violence by outpatients with by Carl E. Fulwiler, Hillel Grossman et al.
OBJECTIVE: This study examined the relationship between violence and substance abuse among patients with chronic mental illness living in the community. METHODS: All referrals over a one-year period to an urban assertive community treatment team were evaluated systematically with a standardized intake protocol. Thirty-seven patients with a history of violence in the community were compared with 27 patients without such a history on a variety of clinical and demographic variables. RESULTS: More than half of the patients (58 percent) had a history of violence in the community. The only significant differences between those with a history of violence and those without involved alcohol or drug use. The single best predictor of violence was the onset of alcohol or drug abuse in late childhood or early adolescence. CONCLUSIONS: In this sample, very early onset of substance abuse among people who developed mental illness was associated with the greatest risk of community violence. Thus at least some of the
Conflict related violence against women transforming transition | Humanitarian law | Cambridge University Press
By comparatively assessing three conflict-affected jurisdictions (Liberia, Northern Ireland and Timor-Leste), Conflict-Related Violence against Women empirically and theoretically expands current understanding of the form and nature of conflict-time harms impacting women. The violences that occur in conflict beyond strategic rape are first identified. Employing both a disaggregated and an aggregated approach, relations between forms of violence within and across each contexts pre-, mid- and post-conflict phase are then assessed, identifying connections and distinctions in violence. Swaine highlights a wider spectrum of conflict-related violence against women than is currently acknowledged. She identifies a range of forces that simultaneously push open and close down spaces for addressing violence against women through post-conflict transitional justice. The book proposes that in the aftermath of conflict, a transformation rather than a transition is required if justice is to play a role in ...
Prevalence of Domestic Violence
Statistics relating to the prevalence of domestic violence are critical to any advocacy effort. Statistics can help document the need for certain programs or raise public awareness of the extent of the problem. International covenants signed by many CEE/FSU countries require signatories to collect statistics on domestic violence. For example, the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women recommends that states parties [p]romote research, collect data and compile statistics, especially concerning domestic violence, relating to the prevalence of different forms of violence against women and encourage research on the causes, nature, seriousness and consequences of violence against women and on the effectiveness of measures implemented to prevent and redress violence against women. The WHO reports that over the last decade, there has been a rapid growth in data obtained through household surveys, national health surveys, and demographic and health surveys, among others. The ...

UN Treaties on Violence Against Women
Article 3 of the UDHR states, Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person. This right was reaffirmed in by the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966), which protects the right to life (Article 6) and the right to liberty and security of person (Article 9). The ICCPR also upholds the right of both men and women to enjoy the civil and political rights in the covenant (Article 3) and equal protection under the law (Article 14). Though these articles do not explicitly refer to violence against women, in recent years, the Human Rights Committee has interpreted them to include obligations to protect women from violence.. General Comment No. 35, adopted in December of 2014, specifically addresses State Parties obligation to protect women from domestic violence and gender-based violence against women:. States parties must take both measures to prevent future injury and retrospective measures, such as enforcement of criminal laws, in response to ...

The Impact of Exposure to Family and Community Violence on Childrens by Esroruleh Tamim Mohammad
Poor and ethnic minority children are at increased risk for exposure to violence within the family and in the community. However, there is limited research examining the differential effects of co-occurring and interrelated forms of violence on childrens mental health. This study utilizes an ecological, developmental psychopathology, systems approach, theorizing that exposure to family and community violence impacts mental health by disrupting emotionally regulated coping (ERC). It was hypothesized that exposure to violence (ETV) would be associated with increased symptoms of anxiety, aggression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and that children applying ERC strategies would report fewer mental health symptoms in the context of ETV. Secondary data analysis of the Worcester Family Research Project (Bassuk et al, 1996) was conducted to address this hypothesis. Participants were low-income housed and homeless single-parent families (n = 91) with school-age children (8-17 years). Hierarchical
National television violence study - Sage Publications, inc - Google Books
The National Television Violence Study is the most thorough and comprehensive study of violence on television to date. The Study responds to enormous public concern about the harmful effects of television on society. In 1993, Senator Paul Simon of Illinois issues a challenge to the television industry to voluntarily pursue an independent assessment of violence on television. In 1994, the cable television industry accepted Simons challenge by commissioning a prestigious group of media effects researchers from four major universities to conduct a three-year study of TV violence. The project includes an oversight council of representatives from 18 leading public health, legal, medical, research, and entertainment industry policy organizations. Based on the largest and most representative sample of television content ever evaluated by a single scientific study, National Television Violence Study, Volume 2 offers a commentary on the state of violence on American television for viewers, policymakers, the
Police chief: Domestic violence crosses all borders - New Canaan News
The case, which spent four years in court, shows how domestic violence can happen anywhere, including affluent communities such as New Canaan. Kathy Lake, a spokesman for the Domestic Violence Crisis Center in Stamford, echoed Krolikowski, saying domestic violence crosses all boundaries, no matter the economic status or gender. Only about one-quarter of all physical assaults perpetuated against women by their partners are reported to the police, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence website. According to Krolikowski, roughly 75 percent of such cases involve domestic violence. In the past 10 years, the agency has expanded its community education programs, counseling services and task forces to raise awareness about domestic violence.
In September 2016 the Government announced the overhaul of legislation relating to family violence and the allocation of $130 million to fund more police officers and social workers to respond to families in which there were extreme versions of family violence. A new range of offences would be created and there would be more support for the victims of domestic violence. The Ministerial Working Group on Family and Sexual Violence identified the need for 53 law changes across a number of different pieces of legislation including the Domestic Violence Act, the Care of Children Act and the Crimes Act. These legal changes followed the production of a discussion paper in 2015 on Strengthening New Zealands Legislative Response to Family Violence and analysis of public submissions relating to this document.. The foreshadowed changes were supported by the National Collective of Independent Womens Refuges. They stated that: The changes made to support and strengthen legislation, including Protection ...

Workplace bullying and workplace violence as risk factors for cardiovascular disease - PublicationlistASM
Aims To assess the associations between bullying and violence at work and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Methods and results Participants were 79 201 working men and women, aged 18-65 years and free of CVD and were sourced from three cohort studies from Sweden and Denmark. Exposure to workplace bullying and violence was measured at baseline using self-reports. Participants were linked to nationwide health and death registers to ascertain incident CVD, including coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease. Study-specific results were estimated by marginal structural Cox regression and were combined using fixed-effect meta-analysis. Nine percent reported being bullied at work and 13% recorded exposure to workplace violence during the past year. We recorded 3229 incident CVD cases with a mean follow-up of 12.4 years (765 in the first 4 years). After adjustment for age, sex, country of birth, marital status, and educational level, being bullied at work vs. not was associated with a hazard ...
Impact of traumatic and violent victimization experiences in individua by Jennifer M. Newman, Ayme Turnbull et al.
Individuals with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder (SZ) experience more violent victimization and noninterpersonal traumatic experiences than the general population. Earlier studies, however, have generally excluded one or grouped together victimization and trauma experiences into single outcome variables, which may obscure their contributory role to SZ symptoms. This issue is important because there is some evidence that intentionally induced violence produces higher rates of psychopathology than nonintentional traumatic experiences. We examined the independent contribution of both types of victimization experiences on SZ patients symptomatology. We were also interested in determining whether SZ patients pattern of acute symptom presentation could discriminate between SZ patients with and without posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) comorbidity. SZ inpatients (n = 70) were assessed for the presence of comorbid PTSD diagnosis, violent victimization, and noninterpersonal traumatic experiences.

Forensic Nursing Examination to Screen for Traumatic Brain Injury Following Intimate Partner Violence and Strangulation
I. According to the subculture of violence theory (Wolfgang, 1957), people engage in interpersonal violence because they have internalized values that encourage this form of behavior. Data from the 1984 NORC General Social Survey were examined for correlations between the demographic variables specified in the theory and six items eliciting attitudes about interpersonal violence. The findings generally did not uncover the value differences between those social groups with low and high rates of involvement in violent crime as predicted by the subcultural explanation of violent behavior. Contrary to the theory, the relation of the demographic variables to approval of violence varied inconsistently across the items. Also, middle and upper class whites were more pro-violence than lower class blacks. II. This paper involves a functional analysis of sexual humor using a sample of jokes obtained from students in lower division Sociology of Human Sexuality classes. It was found that while the jokes ...
Changing the Narrative About Gun Violence in California - Public Health Institute
The discourse about gun violence is often dominated by horrific stories about mass shootings, but PHIs Berkeley Media Studies Group wanted to know how more common types of violence that happen every day appear and how community-level prevention and intervention strategies are portrayed. In 2018, BMSG analyzed how three common types of gun violence (domestic violence, suicide, and community violence) are framed in California news, which provided a window into the public discourse. Through their analysis, they discovered that:. ...

Making Sense of Recent Mutinies in Côte dIvoire - Political Violence at a Glance
Guest post by Rebecca Schiel and Christopher Faulkner.. On May 12th, 2017, disgruntled soldiers launched a mutiny in Côte dIvoire, the third since January, demanding the government make good on promises of pay bonuses. Pointing to the negative long-term consequences of seemingly brief bouts of instability, Vincent Freigang of Protection Group International (PGI) recalls the difficulty with which Côte dIvoire cultivated international investor confidence in the aftermath of the recent civil war. Three mutinies in five months will likely have far reaching economic consequences regardless of the ability of the regime to avoid escalation. While the occurrence of several mutinies in short order is certainly troublesome, there is reason to remain cautiously optimistic about the countrys long-term stability apart from economic setbacks.. Mutinies are distinct from other episodes of political violence including coups détat. Mutinies are generally understood as an act of collective insubordination ...

Longitudinal Associations Between Teen Dating Violence Victimization and Adverse Health Outcomes | American Academy of...
METHODS: Secondary analysis of Waves 1 (1994-1995), 2 (1996), and 3 (2001-2002) of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, a nationally representative sample of US high schools and middle schools. Participants were 5681 12- to 18-year-old adolescents who reported heterosexual dating experiences at Wave 2. These participants were followed-up ∼5 years later (Wave 3) when they were aged 18 to 25. Physical and psychological dating violence victimization was assessed at Wave 2. Outcome measures were reported at Wave 3, and included depressive symptomatology, self-esteem, antisocial behaviors, sexual risk behaviors, extreme weight control behaviors, suicidal ideation and attempt, substance use (smoking, heavy episodic drinking, marijuana, other drugs), and adult intimate partner violence (IPV) victimization. Data were analyzed by using multivariate linear and logistic regression models. ...
Childrens Aggression Scale Archives - PAA
Authors. Jeffrey M. Halperin, PhD and Kathleen E. McKay, PhD. Description. The prevalence of aggression among youth continues to increase at an alarming rate. With youth violence accounting for 1 in every 12 murders that occurred in the U.S. in 2002 (Snyder & Sickmund, 2006), and 33% of U.S. high school students in 2003 reporting involvement in one or more physical fights within the past year and 12.8% reporting being in a physical fight on school property (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2004), the need to assess and treat aggressive behaviours has never been greater.. The CAS is an informant rating scale that is designed to evaluate setting-specific frequency and severity of aggressive acts of children and adolescents ages 5-18 years. Distinct from other more common measures that address oppositional defiant and antisocial behaviours, the CAS examines the aggressive acts of these youth.. Items describe actual acts of aggression versus a wide variety of behaviours that are ...
Domestic violence reports to law enforcement are just the tip of the iceberg, but can be useful when identifying neighborhoods for intervention. Local law enforcement and victims advocate agencies are working together to prevent domestic violence homicides by screening for lethality indicators at the time law enforcement responds to a call. People (usually women, sometimes men) with high lethality risk may receive additional services in efforts to assure their safety.Domestic violence is extremely harmful to witnesses, particularly young children whose developing brains assimilate domestic violence as stress. Increasing resources to reduce domestic violence in our community is a sound investment that pays dividends in future educational attainment of children, future health of victims and witnesses, reduction of truancy and involvement in the juvenile justice and adult justice systems, and chronic illnesses as adults.. ...
IJERPH | Free Full-Text | Long-Term Drug Misuse Increases the Risk of Cognitive Dysfunctions in Intimate Partner Violence...
Intimate partner violence against women (IPVAW) is a major public health problem, with an important mortality rate in women across the world. In this regard, it has been well-established that drug misuse explains (at least in part) an increased risk of IPVAW perpetration. Even though alcohol is the most widely studied drug underlying IPVAW, other drugs, such as cannabis and cocaine also seem to be significant indicators of this type of violence. Nonetheless, little is known about mediators, such as cognitive domains that facilitate proneness to violence after drug consumption. Therefore, the primary objective of the present study was to compare drug misuse patterns and cognitive performance in a carefully selected sample of IPVAW perpetrators (n = 63) and a group of non-violent men (control group; n = 39). Second, we also aimed to study the association between different patterns of drug misuse and cognitive performance and several facets of IPVAW perpetration (i.e., severity of injuries and type of
Business Has A Role Preventing Violence
New Zealand Businesses are playing a significant role in supporting victims of domestic violence, says White Ribbon Ambassador Anna Campbell, but we need to do more.. On Monday 1 April a new law comes into effect that allows for domestic violence leave of up to 10 working days..

Our country has the highest rate of reported violence in the developed world. To change, this we need an all-of-society-approach. That is why White Ribbon supports and encourages businesses to prevent violence through education and awareness raising as part of our accreditation process.. Weve kept the process as simple as possible. Our team works with organisations to ensure their policies create a safe workspace. Weve brought the best examples together so that organisations do ...

Substance Abuse Domestic Violence And Child Abuse
Domestic violence refers to the intentional use of physical, sexual, or psychological force by a member of the family or an intimate partner against another. Often, it is used as a form of control.. The victims of child abuse and domestic violence often struggle with addiction. Unfortunately, many of them struggle with access to the treatment and rehabilitation services that they need to overcome the trauma that they suffered at the hand of a family member.. That said, domestic violence is one of the most abusive patterns. It is often linked to the impulsivity that comes with substance abuse and addiction. It is essential that you - either as the victim or as the abuser - finds ways to break the cycle of addiction and violence through a professional treatment and recovery program.. In many cases, domestic violence involves a pattern of harmful and abusive behavior in a relationship. It is used by intimate partners or older adults to gain and maintain control and power over other people.. In ...

Humphrey School Researchers Advocacy Against Gender Violence in Colombia Shows Results | Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public...
Colombia already has robust laws on the books criminalizing intimate partner violence and providing protection for victims, says Friedemann-Sánchez. But implementation and enforcement of the laws is inconsistent throughout the country. As a result, Colombias rates of intimate partner violence are among the highest in the world. This disconnect between strong laws and persistent high levels of intimate partner violence was the impetus for Friedemann-Sánchez to launch the project in 2015. The research focused on the office of the family commissioner. Family commissioners are on the front lines helping victims of intimate partner violence by issuing civil orders of protection. Although their role is judicial in nature, family commissioners are located under mayors offices and funded by cities, and rarely are provided the resources they need.. Commissioners in rural areas lack basic resources like paper, computers, printers, and internet connections, or the support personnel that is required by ...
