Questions related to Violence
it is said that the suppression against women can be eradicated once they are educated and occupy the social n professional positions in a powerful way. Is this happening now? Do women are feeling safe or do they treated better or do the violence against them reduced?
otherwise, what will be your personal question when you hear any violence against women.
I am doing a study on attitude towards intimate partner violence My study has 2 variable gender stereotypes and controlling behaviour that affects intimate partner violence. I want to compare gender differences versus cultural differences with respect to the 2 variables mentioned. There are surveys for both the variables. If I do a regression will there a multicolinearity between the gender and culture? Kindly guide with the statistical analysis
I am looking for a publically available video/image dataset from surveillance cameras, which is used to detection if there is violence like fight happened. Also,a dataset from surveillance cameras contains such class also helpful. I have collected UCF-crime, NTU-CCTV dataset, I want to know how to get more datasets like these or how to collect such videos by myself.
Dear, I am aware of literature regarding the correlation between higher level of violence against civilians and foreign fighters presence (for example Bakke 2014, Moore 2019, Doctor and Willingham 2020, Doctor 2021, ...). I was wondering if there is anything that compares (also with qualitative methods) IS foreign fighters and IS local fighters in their relations with the locals in Syria and Iraq.
“Women are in back seated in their family in south Asian countries due to extreme gender stratification and men take the opportunity to control them using their male dominant rural culture. Rural men enjoy their muscle power over their women to prove their supremacy. Violence against women (VAW) starts from the family and women are in silence in most of the cases to avoid further familial disharmony as they have no place to go without any earning opportunity. Empowerment can inspire them more to find their own identity to protect themselves by raising their voices against the violence”.
Intentional cruelty to animals is strongly correlated with other crimes including violence against people.I wil conduct my research on Animal Cruelty facts and stats,Laws and how it can be stop.
COVID-19 is changing the social life of all people. Jumping out of the personal aspect, how does it affect the family as a whole.
Family is regarded as the fundamental structure of the society, will COVID-19 changes the future family structure, unit and model?
How is it affecting gender issues too?
Besides, why is domestic violence increasing? Is psychology and psychiatry playing a role?

I continue, even here at the end of 2021, to see research on the mental health and psychosocial wellbeing of people in low- and middle-income countries, led by researchers in high income countries, for which no local collaborator is listed as a co-author. I find this troubling, and feel it lends credence to the view of much of our research as having a colonialist underpinning. If a study reports on help- seeking behavior among displaced people in Country X, or Intimate Partner Violence in Occupied Country Y, or patterns of distress among survivors of violence in Country Z, shouldn't people from the target countries & communities be involved in all aspects of the research, including co-authorship on publications?
Alcohol is associated with many diseases- pancreatic cancer, cirrhosis,etc and also violence, accidents and social breakdown
And yet, many in our Society are able to control their intake. And many abstain for religious reasons.
On balance, is it more harmful than useful?
Is it not time to re-consider its use?
What are your thoughts on this matter?
I am working one a civil war final paper for my graduate course. I am interested in examining the dynamics of Sengal civil war.
First, I will be exploring the root causes of civil war from 1982-2014. What are the difference contexts and greivances that trigger the civil war?
As the main conflict essentially ended in 2014 with a ceasefire, I will then go on to explore how that ceasefire was initiated and access the effectiveness of the stabilization/nation-building elements within this ceasefire period.
However, despite ceasfire in place, low-level violence remains and the problem seems to be unresolved. This leads me to my last part, why the previous ceasefire manage to successfully end the war, but not mitigating the unrest in the region altogether. In other words, why is 2014 ceasefire successful in reducing violence but why the major problems unsolved leading to current low-level violence in Senegal? In short, this last part will explore why 2014 ceasefure is not perfect?
I am urgently in need of literature for that, any form of assistance will be highly appreciated. Thank you!
I am conducting empirical research and I am using the world governance indicators, one of them is the one on " political stability and absence of violence terrorism" it measures perceptions of the likelihood that the government will be destabilized or overthrown by unconstitutional or violent means, including politically-motivated violence and terrorism. I am studying a panel fixed effect model between this variable and Tourism and I attached the results.
I am confused about the results; what do I interpret the coefficient of PS " political instability and absence of voice and accountability". Does it measure stability or instability? So a one-unit increase in political instability or a one-unit increase in political stability variable leads to a decrease in tourism?
Interested in ways of beginning research to look at causes of at risk behavior on high crime and violence subculture of Kansas City
I am planning to conduct a larger study in a male-dominated/masculine work environment. It will be a survey with several instruments to conduct quantitative research. May I ask for recommendations on surveys about gender equality, attitudes, violence etc.
The Capstone is complete, responses no longer necessary
My graduate capstone is reviewing research on MORAL DISTRESS SYMPTOMS as they apply to (contribute to the emotional state of) police and the contribution it makes to police violence (use of force beyond a threshold).
For example, moral distress from working with child sex abuse material could lead to perceiving everyone as an abuser and influence decision-making.
Police violence is more likely in an officer with compromised decision-making skills (ethically or due to hypervigilance.)
Any research on racism and how it influences this topic is appreciated.
Some judgements in politically sensitive cases have been followed by violence, looting and anarchy in the wider society. Many human lives and property worth billions of dollars are often lost in the ensuing mayhem. Should the social ramifications of incarcerating influential politicians be taken into account? If so, where does that leave the rule of law? Is the rule of law above all possible considerations?
I am working on a research in identifying content that may be inappropriate for kids.
Does someone know how to identify very loud sounds in videos, e.g. violence , screams?
In his book "Identity and Violence. The Illusion of Destiny" (New York, London 2006), Amartya Sen criticizes the positions contending the existence of cultural identities which completely absorb individual minds and destinies. Sen sees in such positions the danger that cultural identities can be used in order to stir up, in a society, groups against other groups. Identities can represent, in the opinion of Sen, an ideological instrument used to oppress minorities and to gain power over determined groups.
I am looking for some good validated measures to assess endorsement of or acceptance of violence against outgroup members of differing political alignment. Many thanks.
In a published article I outline 6 subtypes of aggression, resulting at times into violence. It is based in part on my experience as an AF ER medic during the Vietnam Conflict, and on my research on combat trauma.
So I am interested in your thoughts and examples of when it is necessary. After collecting a # of responses, I will attach one or two of my published articles.
I am working on designing an gender based violence (GBV) program evaluation tool to measure frequency of violence against men and boys over time. But I could not find any resources on this. Any resource materials would highly recommended.
It is noted that Men show significant lower anxiety, depression, and acute stress levels than women and women present greater severity in symptoms of anxiety, depression, and acute stress. Moreover, loneliness and violence specifically worsen the emotional state in women.kindly put your thoughts in this topic.
Dear Research Community,
We are planning an intervention study to reduce domestic violence. I wonder if you can guide me how to compare the prevalence of violence before and after the intervention in the same sample using SPSS. The samples are clustered and that needs to be taken into consideration.
Thanks in advance!
Dear colleagues, I need your help to reflect on the following questions. I'm engaging in research project concerned about experience of countries in the mechanisms of overcoming violence and divisions in their past politics. All countries have gone through some sort of violent past, how have they reconciled with their past and each other? In cases where they had not established commissions or gone through processes that were explicitly named 'reconciliation', how did they manage to come to state of peace, democracy and development? It is my pleasure also if you can suggest me literature related to this issue.
The interconnected inquiries help me to approach literary Iraqi identity poetics as an integral part of a parallel discourse that is working to unsettle the dominant official 2003 poetry of “Iraqiness” as well as the sectarian essentializations of post-2003 Iraqi society.
How are these literary formulations themselves being reshaped along a sectarian/secular divide? In what capacity can nonviolent resistance through art combat sectarian violence on the ground?
I am currently a student pursuing my B.A in Criminal Justice and I am about to start my final/senior project to be awarded my degree. I would like to focus my research on Juvenile Delinquency/Crime and Violence.
It is not that violence should be considered outside human nature, as clearly it is part of us functioning within a number of contexts both intimate, that is up close, relationship based with, too frequently, partners, coecion by authorities, national security through both offrence and defence.
But....I believe fiercely in pacifism and that only violence can correctly be termed immoral. Behaviour that affects no one adversely is not immoral. Behaviour that annoys neighbours is not immoral but human variety.
But how does a community eliminate violence without using violence?
I am researching political and electoral violence and I need latest electoral violence theories propounded from 2011 to date because all the theories accessible to me are from 2010 and earlier and they will not be accepted by my institution.
Capstone for MS in Forensic Psychology. I am connecting the symptoms of moral distress with the causes of police violence. If research has been conducted in this area, I have not found it. I do not want to miss any recent or current research between the two.
Thank you, and Happy New Year!
Violence against women is a major public health problem.
Studies indicate that about 1 in 3 (35%) of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime. Women are more likely to experience intimate partner violence if they have low education, exposure to mothers being abused by a partner, abuse during childhood, and attitudes accepting violence, male privilege, and women’s subordinate status.
At you workplace, as a medical care member, you notice domestic violence against a woman. What is your duty in this situation?
The school is one of the most important contexts of socialization, through the dynamics that take place in it we can be transmitting and repeating useful violence, it is necessary to become aware of how that happens in order to change it.
I am looking for the most recent scientific findings concerning attitudes of religious groups towards the relations within a family (equality, subordination, pshysical violence toward wife or children, reasons for divorce, etc.), possibly after 2015. Collecting material for a new textbook.
The Management of Aggression and Violence Attitude Scale (MAVAS) was used to identify staff perceptions about the causes and management of aggression and violence. Previous research has validated the 30-item MAVAS in comparing the views of mental health nurses and psychiatric in-patients as to the causes and management of patient aggression and violence.
Despite well-established validity and reliability in the inpatient mental health setting, the psychometric properties of the MAVAS have not been evaluated in the emergency department (ED) setting. A study explored and compared the attitudes held by staff and patients in a forensic mental health service about aetiology and management of aggression and violence reported very little overlap between their findings and the proposed four-factor structure.
Furthermore, the original survey questions were designed for a mental health setting where seclusion was used, however seclusion is not used in EDs. To ensure the MAVAS is applicable in the ED setting, we had replaced the word ‘seclusion’ with ‘security’ in three items of the MAVAS. We have also changed the scale from a 100-mm visual analogue scale to a 4-point Likert Scale (1=Strongly agree, 4=Strong disagree).
We would like to test the factor structure of the MAVAS tool within a new population (ED service users and staff) in order to verify its factor validity in this population. A confirmatory factor analysis on the ED staff and consumers sample is planned to assess the reliability of the modified version of MAVAS in the ED setting. But we don't have AMOS, can we do this analysis using SPSS or other softwares? What is the best way to test the factor structure? Thanks!
Is it possible to increase the aggressiveness of the subject due to the creative nature of his activity? Is there a correlation between creativity and aggressive behavior from a neuroscience perspective? What kind of research would you recommend on this topic?
I have a checklist consisting of dichotomous items (Yes/No). I want to know how to interpret the results (when in percentages). For example, 45% of females and 40% of males have experienced the violence of the conflict. Now, could I interpret it as females have experienced significantly higher violence than males?
Is there any standardized criteria for interpretation of such results which are in percentages?
It would be a great help...
I'm currently developing a project looking at instances of cultural and symbolic violence towards nature, whether this creates/contributes to stigma, and how it compares to, or causes, physical violence (i.e farming of livestock, crushing insects due to fear). Particularly interested in snakes and spiders as used to symbolise an evil, violent, or manipulative trait in a human, or other sentient antagonistic force in a piece of fiction.
Seeking to answer questions such as:
Is our use of certain creatures to represent these things in any way unethical?
What does symbolic violence towards 'strange' creatures indicate about our tendencies to do this with differential prejudice towards humans? And is challenging symbolic violence towards living creatures necessary on all levels to combat it between human groups?
So, does anyone have recommendations for reading on this? And, are there any available studies analysing the impact of nature representation on societal approach to specific animals?
I have reviewed some articles, for example from Anderson and Bushnam (2002,2017) on the subject. Generally, it is stated that "violence is a form of extreme aggressiveness".
I do not agree with this differentiation. Considers that violence is a form of aggressiveness with an instrumental and planned nature. I would like to know your opinion
He revisado algunos artículos, por ejemplo de Anderson y Bushnam (2002,2017) sobre el tema. En general, se afirma que "la violencia es una forma de extrema agresividad". No estoy de acuerdo con esta diferenciación. Considera que la violencia es una forma de agresividad de naturaleza instrumental y planificada
Hi, I am doing a research on communal violence in minority people. I am looking whether there are confounding variables in my research situation.
Thank you in advance.
Half of the world’s children, or approximately 1 billion children each year are affected by physical, sexual or psychological violence, suffering injuries, disabilities and death, because countries have failed to follow established strategies to protect them.
This is according to a new report published on 18th June by the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, UNESCO, the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General on Violence against Children and the End Violence Partnership.

From my point of view, although many people think this violence is just like another, it should be considered as gender-based violence because it has only affected women for a lot of years by the simple fact that we are women. Women throughout history have been abused, we have received insults, we have had to ask for permission only because we are women and we have had to endure thousands of situations that have made us feel inferior for thousands years. That is why it is totally fair to speak of a different violence, which only affects us because we were born as women, and for this reason feminism is so necessary.
I am looking for an interesting thesis Topic regarding Africa and Nigeria to be exact, I am interested in insecurity, the boko haram insurgency, the ethnic politicisation and violence and also governmental institution reforms.
Domestic violence crosses all countries and cultures. Some abusive men claim that in their culture women have a subordinate role and the use of violence is permitted to keep women in line. We have to fight against this injustice in many countries, because if this its true, women have no escape for this.
What are some of the roles family members and significant others play in the abuse of men?
Can I get research on violence against men?
Is anyone aware of studies that have looked into the prevalence of helping professionals who have experienced or are experiencing domestic and family violence, after being qualified?
I'm aware that a service I work for receives a number of calls for support from women who have experienced violence from partners, and are qualified in social work, psychology, or other helping streams. I'm not talking about individuals inspired by their own experiences to enter the helping field, rather individuals who train and work in thise fields, who later enter into relationships characterised by violence. s e
PA involves a child being influenced by a parent to reject or resist contact with the other parent for no good reason.
If fact what connection, correlation and contribution does it make to negative social issues such as historical trauma, family/whanau violence. What is the relevance of (PA) to social work?
Private troubles – Public issues, do they intersect in relation to PA?
Hi all I’m conducting research on the relationship between social media and election violence. Particularly can a popular hateful page on social media that is spewing hateful tweets or posts cause it’s followers to enact real life violence on a target group?
for ex did Donald trumps anti Jewish tweets cause lead to more Jews being victimized etc.
any Insights would be beneficial as I draft up a research proposal
I am looking for a scale or a questionnaire that assesses participants' knowledge about emotional abuse and intimate partner violence!
It can be construed that the lack of peace in the Middle East is a direct result of two communities with conflicting cultures share a region. African cultural interrelationships are a good place to study crossborder interactions between communities with symbiotic cultures.
For a new study on what situational factors mediate or moderate the relationship between the use of alcohol and intimate partner violence, I am looking for factors such as poverty, partner substance abuse, stressful environment, ethnicity, etc. Does anyone have a list of such factors?
Please, I need a description of how this two variables of influenced eachother and how they have, if actually, led to violence conflict in Nigeria Independence
It assumed tha in many countries, if not all, man's concentration is presently turned towards physical and material devices. Education and instruction, consequently, are victims of the new wishes ans needs. As a matter of fact, sciences about practical and productive fields are given priority and the sciences of man's inner side, among which is Phylosophy, are relegated to the lowest rank.

Here is the webinar VA Healing Environments and Research: Connection, Reflection, Introspection, Trust and Acceptance presented on July 11th for the Center for Health Design.
It is said: The end justifies the means. People often succumb to internal or external pressures consciously or unconsciously to achieve their wishes or goals, and never care about the consequences or consequences of their behavior, and these behaviors may cause harm to others. what do you think ?
I seek some conversations with readers of Purple Hibiscus concerning the link of Papa Eugene's violence, piety and his amazing generosity. Does his violence and stringent piety erase his generosity, or does his giving redeem his mistakes somehow and make him a flawed human being; nonetheless human? Moreover how is Papa Eugene violence linked to the violence of the military state of Nigeria of his time? I would very much appreciate to hear how other readers interpret Papa Eugene.
Violence against women is a worldwide phenomenon that depends on different factors all based on forms of inequalities against women in many aspects of life. In order to improve the impact of training on guidelines/protocols of interventions in health operators who need to support victims of violence, we would measure the psichologica feature involved in this process.
More specifically, the goal is to compare the difference attributed to the training program, evaluating skills and competences’s regarding violence against women, e.g., counseling, managing, and providing the needed support.
Do you suggest me standardized psichological instruments to measure results of this training program in health professionists involved in Violence against women?
I'm interested in measuring perceived moral decline: the extent to which people believe that society is more immoral and corrupt now than it was in the past.
This is conceptually similar to nostalgia but it's not the same. It's also similar to Altemeyer's Belief in a Dangerous World (BDW), but that measure focuses mostly on violence whereas I'm interested in perceived immorality more broadly.
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
I am a French climate historian, currently a visiting professor at the University of Rimouski. As part of ongoing research on storms in the Lower St. Lawrence, I learned from an article in the newspaper La Patrie that the icebreaker of the government "Mikula", commanded by Captain Hearns, had suffered 2 storms of a rare violence on March 2, 1925. Very interested by these extreme events and their characterization, I therefore take the liberty to contact you in order to know if you have information about the logbook of this ship for the year 1925 as well as technical characteristics (waterline, length and height, etc.).
Looking forward to hearing from you and with my best regards,

I acknowledge the fact that Mexico is not your traditional case of insurgency, but there are some factors to consider in this sense: the violence towards the Mexican government, police forces and citizens added up with the fact that the country is being ripped of economically (plus the considerable amount of time Mexico spent fighting cartels) by TCOs. I'm looking for help to narrow down my research puzzle as much as possible and correlate it with appropriate data/evidence. For example, would you analyse state's performative power in relation with TCOs activity? Any help appreciated.
The literature often cites high rates of PTSD following sexual violence. It is regularly cited as the most traumatic form of violence but I have found very few studies investigate or hypothesise why this is. Some allude to the interpersonal nature of the crime. I was wondering if anyone could direct me to any research that investigates this in more depth.
The level of public debate has an impact on the behavior of ordinary people, consent to hatred, lack of consistency for inciting violence, is not without impact on the actual acts of barbarity. This is an extremely hot topic, especially today in my country, where yesterday during a charity event the president of one of the largest polish cities was attacked and seriously wounded .
Please I need suggestion on how best to frame this title''Social protection: The role of libray in mitigating poverty related violence''
Our society becomes each day more violent and urban conflicts affects citizen’s security. We propose a control already implemented in many cities with international cooperation for a human facial database in order to detect potential suspects and allow immediate security intervention, protecting persons and property.
Multiculturalism and plural ethos are highly required to establish a successful democratic society. Democracy cannot become a successful enough until principles of accomudation will be taken into cognizance. Respecting diversity is very important in developing a progressive society free from violence and clashes.
I am interested recently in factors that predict Criminal thinking among people not in prison (serving as factors triggering the on-set of criminal behavior). Also the factors that trigger or predict violence extremism among youths. I also wonder if criminal thinking could predict violent extremism or vise versa.
Please I need your expert guide.
