There are different types of sexual abuse in which a child is abused. Children display warning signs such as behavioral or physical signs. Sexual abuse experiences can vary dramatically in terms of the amount and kind of traumatic socialization they provoke and make a child’s attempt to cope difficult. Child sexual abuse has the potential to damage a child physically, emotionally, and behaviorally for the rest of their childhood into middle-aged adulthood. Pedophilia involves sexual attraction towards children.
This relationship is held into account of not only the positive but the negative outcome of a child’s personality. In this essay I will discuss the link between parents behaviour and their children’s behaviour and discuss the evidence to support the claim that they are the reason behind the disturbed behaviour and the disturbing behaviour. Firstly we have to discuss what is problem behaviour and when we can make the decision that the behaviour becomes disturbed or disturbing and whether it is disturbing someone else or the child themselves. To be able to make the decision that a child’s behaviour is disturbed or disturbing we need to know when a child’s behaviour goes from being normal to be disturbed. There are also risk factors that count towards the cause of disturbed and disturbing behaviour in children.
By understanding what constitutes as violence, one can hold a tighter grasp of the concepts and examples of family violence, and its correlation with crime. There are many forms of research that support the idea that violent crime is related to family violence, and this concept will be backed by sound secondary research. Various types of family violence take place on a daily bases all across the United States, and unfortunately, the victims of these vicious acts often grow up damaged physically, emotionally, and socially. Child sexual abuse is a form of family violence that can have detrimental behavioral effects that consist of sexual victimization of others, delinquency, and stealing (Cohen et al., 1998).This act of family violence is
Statistics from a study done by Gary Derienfield show that children may: bully, lie, steal, cheat or fight more often. Another impact of children witnessing domestic violence is the potential intergenerational continuation of violence. There is some evidence to suggest that the cycle of violence may continue with children who have witnessed family violence (Cunningham and Baker 2004). A small percentage of Family Violence 4 children exposed to family violence are not as severely affected later on in life. It is important to remember that individual children’s responses are dependent on many factors within the child, the family and the environment.
Violence in this study refers to all the aggressive and violent actions or scenes. By this I might include a violent movie, political violence, victimization, sexual violence, and domestic violence. The person performing this violent behavior on children might also has an impact whether the father, mother, teacher, or colleges. In this study we will go through all those factors and investigate the effect of each factor on children’s behavior. Methodology I hocked into the online EPNET database and I chose the 4 databases Academic Search Premier, Business Source Premier, Regional Business News, and Library, Information Science & Technology Abstract.
Four articles have been reviewed in total that focuses on the aspects of bullying and the detrimental effects children encounter when they are victims of bullying. From these articles the findings shows that in terms of defining bullying, this was linked to teasing that caused distress verbally or physically that was found to be universal. Hence, bullying was related to many factors one of which involved physical appearance this included physical trait that deviated from a norm by the peer group). In addition, name calling was a commonly used method for taunting (Horowitz et al, 2004). According to a peer group each group have their own set of rules, and norms in terms of behaviour, appearance, language, symbols etc as this gives a
There are many different forms of child abuse and all of them leave scars, some that can be seen and some that are invisible. However, not all abused children will experience the long-term consequences. The outcomes of the child may vary widely and should be treated as case by case bases. Throughout, this paper I will dive deeper of what factors affecting the consequences of child abuse, physical, psychological, behavioral, and societal consequences. Factors Affecting the Consequences of Child Abuse The definition of child physical abuse is very difficult to define and may be described in several different ways depending upon which states you’re in.
Public Policy and the Social Learning Theory Cynthia Brough CJ102 Criminology I March 4, 2014 Professor Ellen Smith Chupik Public Policy and the Social Learning Theory Due to the latest issues of child neglect and endangerment, the Department of Job and Family Services in Anytown executed a new public policy based on the Social Learning Theory. This new policy states that one or more accounts of domestic violence, child abuse or drug/alcohol infractions or violations by anyone who is in direct charge of a child’s care, will result in the child or children being removed from the home. The child or children will then be placed in the custody and care of the state or foster care services until the child’s guardian has complied with any of the following requirements; drug and/or alcohol treatment, counseling, family therapy, mental health treatment, anger management, life skills training and parenting classes. After a period of six months, if the guardian(s) have completed all of their court ordered classes and therapy sessions without another offense then the child may be returned to the home. The Social Learning Theory that is being used as a basis for this new policy is centered on the view that people learn bad or aggressive behaviors by witnessing other people who act aggressively in order to reach a particular goal or reward.
This is a personal assumption based off of previous experiences that I have been through. My professional assumption is that sexual predators have issues that they need help treating and coping with. There are a set of common traits for child molesters. They have a history of abuse in their childhood, an inability to empathize, bad coping skills, inefficient self-management skills, previous sexual offenses that have been undetected, pro-offending attitudes and social,
