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.  (+info)

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.  (+info)

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.  (+info)

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.  (+info)

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)

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 ...

I am delighted to share with you two reports commissioned by the Wales Violence Prevention Unit and delivered by CASCADE, the Childrens Social Care Research and Development Centre. The reports have collated evidence relating to how to implement effective co-productive practice in public services, and provided a horizon scan of the evidence relating to the best approaches for decreasing the prevalence of youth violence. Together, this evidence will support us and our partners in developing evidence-based practice for youth violence, and work together to prevent it. These reports will be invaluable in ensuring effective violence prevention activity in Wales and beyond. Indeed, the Wales Violence Prevention Unit is already using the findings to inform our plans for the coming year, 21/22. The report on implementing co-productive practice recognises that whilst there is currently a lack of evidence on the effectiveness of co-production, the literature available highlights both direct and indirect ...

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 [1995]; age 13 years) were examined as predictors of violence involvement during adolescence (Wave 2 [1996]; 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 ...
Youth violence prevention, one of the oldest fields in violence, continues to advance rapidly. Research on youth violence has increased our understanding of factors that make some populations more vulnerable to victimization and perpetration.
Junior Smart, Founder of the SOS Project at St Giles Trust which works with young people involved in and at risk of gang crime and serious youth violence, reflects on the recent wave of gun and knife-related incidents that have spread across the capital.. The past few weeks have been very sad times for all of us on the SOS Team. Some of the victims of the recent wave of stabbings and shootings have been known to us. Our thoughts are with their families and friends and the unimaginable heartache they must be going through. The victims were mostly innocent children with much to give to society. We must never forget this fact. Its one that spurs the SOS Team on to continue its lifesaving work.. The Home Offices Tackling Serious Violence strategy - launched earlier this month - gives us a glimmer of hope. However, this problem requires a joined up and committed response to address the underlying issues which drive serious youth violence. They cut across education, housing, poverty and social ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

Study Purpose: The purpose of the study was to assess the effectiveness of a school-based violence prevention program known as Tribes in preventing youth violence. Study Design: Tribes Learning Communities is a whole classroom (often whole school) strategy and on-going group process that uses teaching practices and class structures to develop an environment that promotes positive student behaviors and learning. The study took place from spring 2007 through spring 2010 and utilized a cluster-randomized experimental trial to assess the effectiveness of the Tribes Program in preventing youth violence. The study was designed in two phases: Phase I examined the impacts after one academic year of exposure to Tribes. Phase II examined the potential sustained program impacts six months after student exposure to one full academic year of Tribes in third and fourth grades.. Phase I of the study was conducted over 18 months starting in spring 2007 for Cohort 1 and summer 2008 for Cohort 2. Prior to random ...

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:
- 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. , -

The Z-Tap Mental Health Awareness and Violence Prevention program, taught entirely in Spanish, teaches participants to learn how to assess mental health issues, seek help for domestic violence, and raise non-violent healthy children. The program was in part developed by the American Psychological Association and has been offered since 2006. The program has trained more than 550 community members and over 500 graduates who act as paraprofessionals by directly helping their families and communities with the newly acquired knowledge. Program participants become leaders and positive role models in their community and teach adults and children the importance of violence prevention and signs and symptoms of depression and anxiety. We hope to empower participants in the community to benefit their own families and families in their community.. ...
Over 28 percent of girls reported to have experienced sexual violence before they turned age 18, he said. The corresponding figure for males is 13 percent.. The figures for physical violence are even more alarming, said Dr. Kwesigabo. According to the survey, 74 percent of girls and 72 percent of boys reported experiencing physical violence before they turned 18.. In addition, almost 24 percent of girls and 28 percent of boys said they had experienced emotional violence during childhood - indicating that this particular problem is prevalent in our society, although it hasnt been investigated before, noted Dr. Kwesigabo.. Procedures to address violence. Tanzania has a new legal framework to respond to the needs of children at risk of violence and abuse. Its implementation is extremely timely in light of the survey results.. Procedures need to be put in place and carefully followed, whether it is a child coming into school, a child coming into the health centre, a child visiting their ...
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 ...
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 [1995]; age 13 years) were examined as predictors of violence involvement during adolescence (Wave 2 [1996]; 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. ...
The Pedagogies of Political Violence research network brings together political theorists who share an interest in several overlapping problems. First, there is the question how forms of violence are taught, how the relevant physical skills and capacities are acquired. Second, there is the question how teaching about violence - in particular in university level work on contemporary war, conflict and politics - is implicated in teaching violence. These problems need further explication, and thinking about them as problems reveals a range of avenues for research.. Violence occupies an ambiguous place in political thought and theory. On the one hand, it is often treated as the default setting for humans as natural beings. The state of nature is thought of as naturally violent; where states and social orders fail, disorder brings heightened threats and rates of violence. It is taken for granted also that states use violence - or at least hold the right to use it in reserve - to maintain order. In ...

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
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...
Background. Violence is a global public health problem and violence among youth is a matter of high priority. Adolescence and young adulthood are important periods for the foundation of future health. Youth victimization may have serious health consequences, making it important to address the occurrence and socio-medical context for possible interventions against violence.. Aims. To analyze prevalence, risk patterns and gender differences in emotional, physical, sexual, and multiple-violence victimizations and the associations between violence victimization and sexual ill health, sexual risk behaviors and mental health in Swedish youth.. Methods. A cross sectional study using two samples, a national sample from nine youth health centers in Sweden and a population-based sample from a middle-sized Swedish city. The questionnaire included standardized instruments addressing violence exposure (NorAQ), socio-demographics, mental and sexual ill-health and sexual risk behaviors, alcohol and substance ...

Gender-based violence undermines the core values of human rights on which the Council of Europe is based and to which its member states have subscribed Gender-based violence refers to any type of harm that is perpetrated against a person or group of people because of their actual or perceived sex, gender, sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Gender-based violence can be sexual, physical, verbal, psychological (emotional), or socio-economic and it can take many forms - from verbal violence and hate speech on the internet, to rape or murder. Statistics show that gender-based violence affects women disproportionately.Gender-based violence undermines the core values of human rights on which the Council of Europe is based and to which its member states have subscribed. It is a problem in all member states and affects millions of women and men, young people and children, regardless of their social status, cultural or religious background, sexual orientation or gender identity.Preventing, addressing and
Research shows that removing guns from domestic abusers saves lives. But often, state laws regarding firearm removal in cases of domestic violence are difficult to navigate and in some states non-existent. This creates obstacles for victims and survivors to get the protection they need.. To address this problem, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence, the Alliance for Gun Responsibility Foundation, and the Prosecutors Against Gun Violence have teamed up to launch a new initiative: Disarm Domestic Violence.. The Disarm Domestic Violence website allows advocates, gun violence prevention activists, survivors, victims, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and so many others to research state-specific laws on domestic violence-related protective order firearm removals and take steps to remove guns from armed abusers.. Visit Disarm Domestic Violence Website. Disarm Domestic Violence is a comprehensive, unique tool, and we need your help to make ...
This course is a suggested model for assessing the potential for workplace violence. The individual taking this course should be aware that predicting who might contribute to a workplace violence situation is difficult because there are so many variables involved. Additionally, workplace violence is not just a violent act; we must consider numerous types of behaviors discussed throughout this course.. These behaviors are rarely identified simply by looking on the surface. Instead we must go below the surface and use our education and insight to help us predict and prevent possible workplace violence.. The more common issues looked at in the workplace violence arena today include bullying, harassment of any kind, intimidation, and domestic or intimate partner violence.. This course will begin with the discussion of some of the more common variables you should be aware of.. • What is the Definition of Workplace ...
Lincoln, Nebraska. Citations issued: April 29, 2016. Investigation findings: The U.S. Department of Labors Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued one serious and one other than serious violations to the residential health care facility for exposing employees to hazards related to workplace violence.. The citations follow an October 2015 OSHA investigation by the agencys Omaha Area Office that found agitated clients have bitten, scratched, kicked and thrown objects at staff members. The clients aggression exceeded the threshold of training workers had received to deal with potential violent clients and compromised their personal safety and ability to control the situation.. A review of injury logs from January 2012 through November 2015, recorded 105 incidents of workplace violence at the facility.. OSHA has guidelines for preventing workplace violence for health care and social workers.. Workplace violence is any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or ...
Over the course of the training, officers learned about conducting trauma-sensitive responses to sexual and gender-based violence and how to take measures to hold perpetrators accountable under the law.. Speaking at the opening ceremony, Ambassador Jackson challenged the investigators to prioritize these crimes.. You are the people victims look to when they need a safe place to escape from violence, said Ambassador Jackson. You are the people who are entrusted with holding accountable those who commit sexual and gender-based violence. With your actions, you can make clear to your communities that this behavior will not be tolerated. When you prioritize combatting domestic and gender-based violence, you set the expectation for the officers under your supervision: whether or not they serve in the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit, they have a responsibility to respond to domestic and sexual violence - and to support the victims.. The training took place at the West Africa Regional ...
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 ...

At the direction of President Obama, the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention (the Forum) was established to build a national conversation concerning youth and gang violence that would increase awareness, drive action, and build local capacity to more effectively address youth violence through comprehensive planning. The Forum models a new kind of federal/local collaboration, encouraging its members to change the way they do business by sharing common challenges and promising strategies, and through coordinated action.. The Forum convenes a diverse array of stakeholders at the federal, state, and local levels. Participating federal agencies include the Departments of Justice, Education, Health and Human Services (particularly the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Planning and Evaluation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), Housing and Urban Development, Labor, the Corporation for National and Community Service and the Office of National Drug Control Policy. ...
Amid startlingly high rates of workplace violence in the health care and social service industries, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on April 2, 2015, released updated voluntary guidelines for violence prevention. The revised guidelines broaden the agencys previous 1996 and 2004 guidelines, and stress the importance of developing a written workplace violence prevention program, incorporating management commitment and employee participation, worksite analysis, hazard prevention and control, training, record-keeping, and program evaluation.. OSHA noted that over 23,000 significant injuries were due to violent assaults at work in 2013, with more than 70 percent of those assaults occurring in health care and social service settings. Between 2012 and 2015, OSHA conducted 148 inspections in response to workplace violence complaints. Of those, 101 were in health care or social service settings.. The agency concluded that health care and social service workers are almost four ...
Indiana recognizes that every Hoosier deserves to live in a safe and supportive environment where he/she can flourish. To this end, the ISDH Office of Womens Health has made a strong commitment to the primary prevention of sexual violence. Primary prevention focuses on stopping first time sexual violence victimization and perpetration. In 2010, the state developed its first comprehensive plan to address sexual violence, entitled Indianas Commitment to Primary Prevention: A State Free of Sexual Violence 2010-2015. This plan provided guidance for advocacy agencies across the Hoosier state to find a role in stopping sexual violence.. In 2015, the ISDH Office of Womens Health, along with nearly 30 community-based and governmental partner agencies, recommitted to ending sexual violence in Indiana. The Sexual Violence Primary Prevention Council (SVPPC) worked together to develop a comprehensive primary prevention plan under which individual advocates, community agencies, coalitions and governmental ...
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 ...
Violence against women is a global issue that affects millions of people annually. Every woman and girl deserves a life free from violence. The United States is committed to advancing gender equality and preventing and responding to all forms of violence against women and girls, from domestic and sexual violence to forced marriage and so-called honor killings.. Eliminating violence against women and girls requires all of us-governments, the private sector, civil society, and faith-based organizations-to take action. To help bring attention to this global challenge, the United States is proud to observe the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25 and the accompanying 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.. The United States is proud to take action on Ending Gender-Based Violence in the World of Work, this years theme for the 16 Days of Activism.

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.

VALLEY - This year October is recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month for the 30th year.. Domestic Violence (DV) or Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a pattern of abusive behaviors which can include physical, sexual, and psychological abuse, or even economic coercion. These abusive behaviors are used by one intimate partner against another to gain and/or maintain control in the relationship. Batterers use a range of tactics to frighten, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, injure, and in extreme cases kill a current or former intimate partner. The tactics can look differently in various situations but the ultimate goal of domestic violence abuse is always control.. There are many ways in which society norms and belief systems can facilitate domestic violence. Consider this; have you or anyone you know, thought domestic violence or intimate partner violence is private and needs to be addressed only by the two involved? This is a social norm which perpetuates violence and victim ...
May is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.. So what is domestic violence awareness and why is it important?. Domestic violence, family violence and intimate partner violence all fall under the same umbrella. It is a term used to describe a pattern of behaviours used by one family member to exert power and control over another family member.. The violent person uses violence, threats, force or intimidation to control or manipulate a partner, former partner or another family member, such as a parent, sibling, cousin, aunt or uncle, grand-parent or step-parent.. It is important we continue to raise awareness of domestic and family violence within our community.. I dont know if the rate of domestic and family violence is increasing, that is a really hard question to answer said Director of Client Services, Dearne Weaver, There are more people accessing services, which is great! Due to more awareness campaigns and the increasing political appetite to address the issue the community has become more ...

Domestic violence may still occur between college students who are sharing a residence with an abusive parent, guardian, family member, or sibling. It may also impact students who live with an intimate partner, regardless of whether they are married or have a child together. Within Federal Title IX regulations, it may also include any type of violence between roommates on campus property.. Here at Texas A&M, we understand the importance of prevention education and evidence-based approaches to preventing domestic violence. We wanted to do more than just raise awareness on the issue and wanted to take the steps to preventing acts of domestic violence. Beginning October 2020, weve changed our awareness month name to Domestic Violence Prevention and Awareness Month.. 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, ...
Because I do know firsthand that the intersection of guns and domestic violence is deadly, she stated. Nearly 1 million American women have been shot by their intimate partner.. She testified in support of the domestic violence bill (HB 1225) that requires police to take firearms away when they first go to a domestic violence call. It also allows police to keep the weapons for five days and allows judges to prohibit firearms as a condition of release from jail.. The most dangerous times for victims of domestic violence are when they are trying to leave a relationship and immediately following a domestic violence arrest, said domestic violence survivor Logan Rysemus.. Every time another shooting is in the news, we feel it deeply, said Catherine Person, gun violence survivor. We know the long rocky road is ahead for the survivor family. Her brother was shot dead 45 years ago. The loss never ends. Even to this day we still feel it.. On a very scary night in 1984 my abusive and ...
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 ...

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 ...
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
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 ...
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.[3] 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,[4] among others. The ...
Police Commissioner Frank Prendergast said communities in the Solomon Islands must take a strong stand against gender-based violence.. Speaking at his weekly press conference last week, Mr Prendagast said the prevalence of sexual offences in the country is a concern as shown by recent surveys.. He said like family violence, sexual offences are an issue communities in the country must not tolerate.. He says while the police will continue to work with communities, a broader issue remains, which is finding out why these offences have occurred.. But theres a broader issue here as to why do these offences occur, what are the attitudes that led to these offences and I think theres a lot of factors involved and I think, you know one of the factors we need to get to grips with here is the responsible use of alcohol and the impact that the misuse of alcohol has in some of these both family violence and gender-based violence.. ...

Violence against women continues to be one of the most pervasive human rights violations globally, affecting every country in the world, Ms. Manjoo said, announcing the first visit to Afghanistan since 2005* by an independent expert charged by the UN Human Rights Council to monitor, report and advise on the situation women and violence around the world.

Article 3 of the UDHR states, Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.[1] 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).[2] The ICCPR also upholds the right of both men and women to enjoy the civil and political rights in the covenant (Article 3)[3] and equal protection under the law (Article 14).[4] 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 ...
A 2009 study published by the Government of Turkey reports widespread domestic violence against women in Turkey. In urban and rural areas, 40% of Turkish women reported having experienced spousal violence in their lifetime, 10% of all women reported of domestic abuse within last 12 months. In the 15-24 year age group, 20% of the women reported of domestic violence by their husbands or male members of their family. The domestic violence ranged from slapping, battering and other forms of violence. The injuries, as a result of the reported domestic violence included bleeding, broken bones and other forms needing medical attention. Over half reported severe injuries.

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
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
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 ...

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 ...
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.

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 ...

In the past few months, journalists and scholars have recounted the reasons that violence within the home would increase during the Coronavirus pandemic. These reasons include extended time spent within the home, additional financial burdens, people being physically cut off from friends and family, and the inability for victims to remove themselves from the home. Articles have pointed to individual reasons, like stress, to explain why a family member would commit violence. One crucial aspect, however, is absent from these analyses: gender inequality. In the Czech Republic, women make, on average, 20% less than their male counterparts. Currently, 27% of the Czech government is made up of women, and the other 73% are men. These are all causes and consequences of gender inequality which contribute to the disproportionate rate at which women experience violence at the hands of men. But for many, the focus has been on domestic violence. In Brno, specifically, there are organizations established to ...
