In USA and Europe, wrestling and boxing have a wide popularity, like UFC and WWE. Does watching violence reduce the aggressive in human been ?
Is this always so?
Is police/military intervention part of the problem or the solution to crime?
See what is happening in Brasil now:
What is the impact of National Anthems (lyrics and music tonality, measure) upon population?
Does the violence invoked in lyrics have any impact upon population; a positive or negative impact?
May the National Anthems be responsible for the increased aggressive behavior and violence among populations ?
Does the tonality of melody have any impact? What about the rhythm, does it have any influence?
In the paper “National Anthems and Suicide Rates” by David Lester of The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and John. F. Gunn III of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, published in Psychological Reports, 2011,108,1,43-44. DOI 10.2466/12.PR0.108.1.43-44, ISSN 0033-2941 the summary mentions:
“In a sample of 18 European nations, suicide rates were positively associated with the proportion of low notes in the national anthems and, albeit less strongly, with students' ratings of how gloomy and how sad the anthems sounded, supporting a hypothesis proposed by Rihmer.”
Do you know of any countries that consider to change their National Anthem for any reasons, especially due to the invoked violence and/or the mood it creates?
As it is known in the neurolinguistics (Neurolinguistic Programing), the texts as well as certain sounds have a profound impact upon people's mind.
As an other example, I'll mention the anthems of France, United States of America (USA) and Romania , texts that contain blood, bombs, revenge, (perhaps discrimination as we find in the Romanian anthem).
Can anybody add to this study, reference, studies, and opinions please? All discussions will help a great deal.

In the year post Paris, increase in violence in England, and chemical use in Syria, what are your institutions doing to provide greater education, and training to staff?
My 34 year old client who has a diagnosis of Intellectual disability ("ID") and severe autism.
He has been detained for the last 13 years in ID care, ostensibly because he is "dangerous" his index offence was smashing three windows value $905 with an axe in response to a loud noise which is a trigger for bad behaviour.
He allegedly as a youth (17 years old) assaulted a girl he liked at school with a knife, and she need hospital treatment and some stitches, he had no idea of what he was doing. The Youth Court gave him a discharge without conviction.
The available literature seems to show the WAIS IV is unreliable in this situation his score was 60, whereas on the Raven Matrices it was 80. He of course has severe communication deficits, but a number of savant abilities such as rapid birth date calculation (tell him your date of birth and he will immediately tell you which day of the week in falls on this year), and artistic abilities, as well as excellent memories for some events 10 years ago.
I am challenging the finding that he is intellectual disabled as well as the proportionality of the treatment, and other matters in High Court proceedings, set down for hearing in July for 7 days.
Have two experts who review the literature and support the view the test results do not reliably show ID.
Has anyone similar experience, any suggestions, or know of any reported case law on this issue?
I'm currently writing a research project about the last words of executed inmates in Texas and I want to know if there's a reason why people proclaim their innocence in their last words?

I'm looking for any research regarding lawyers as victims of domestic abuse.
I recently visited a prison and had a conversation with the rehabilitation manager who I asked about mental health within prisons. He explained to me that a lot of staff such as prison officers are not equipped to understand and deal with inmates who are experiencing difficulties within their mental health. I read into this and found it corresponds with a lot of research. When according to the prison reform trust (2016) 25% of women and 15% of men in prison reported symptoms indicative of psychosis and the rate among the general public is about 4% it seems vital that mental health within prisons is taken seriously. In the use of solitary confinement for example, it has been found to cause mental disturbances such as paranoia and psychosis especially which can result, when released in general population in random acts of violence. This was demonstrated in Harlow's research in the 1950s with rhesus monkeys.
This is something I feel very strongly about and would love to research it further, and am hoping to do something within this area for my dissertation which begins in September. I was wondering if anyone could help or point me in the right direction? I am training to work within a medium and low secure unit and finish my training on the 7th April 2017 for inmates under the mental health act so do have some access.
Recently, in India, we have witnessed numerous cases of violence against healthcare workers. This was happening for long but with the availability of universal smartphone based communication tools like Whatsapp, these incidents have begun to be shared widely. Sudden rise in the number of cases is explained by the better communication now. Still, the big question is, how can be prevent violence against healthcare workers? But do do that first we need to define violence.
What I think is that Violence includes, shouting, threatening, and showing violent gestures to healthcare workers, not merely physical violence. Currently, there is no mechanism in India where people can register violence other than physical violence. What is your opinion on this?
Confidentiality is best preserved in a face to face consultation or through a process that involves study participants. Texting someone else diagnosis raises ethical concerns, even if the affected patient is an intimate sexual partner. Preserving medical secrecy is a requirement for heath workers who are taking care of a patient. Therefore, what information is made available to the partner in the text message? At what step the intimate sexual partner becomes part of the study population?

What group therapy (for batterers, mandated or self-selected) techniques and or interventions are widely used due to positive evidence based performance outcomes?
Example - Broset Violence checklist assesses risk of violence in the next 24 hours with six observation elements. I'm looking for for a sensitive and specific tool that has relatively few elements for wider use by clinical and non-clinical staff in emergency departments, medical surgical inpatient, outpatient, physician office and home health. If it is applicable to general populations as well as patients it is better.
I am working with the Partners Conflict Tactics Scales and the Parent-Child Conflict Tactics Scales.
Both sets of scales include several types of violent / maltreatment actions.
Each sub-scale has items asking for the frequency of actions/behaviors.
What is the best way of scoring a sub-scale (e.g. physical abuse) taking into account that each item has different severity levels in addition to the frequency Likert-type answer?
Additionally, is it possible to combine different forms of violence into a composite index? (An index for partners violence and another index for child maltreatment).

Currently I am investigating the magnitude of sexual violence incidents in children (adolescents) aged 18 and below at an urban setting. My data source was a hospital's rape clinic register. The preliminary data came up with an alarming rate of completed rape incidents and the majority of victims were below the age of 10. Among these 30% of the children were boys. Since the data was a hospital's register it could not be representative of those who did never report to the hospital or any where else. To make a meaningful use of the data I decided to follow it further and find out what the legal system did with the cases reported to it. I wanted proportions of prosecuted incidents among those reported to the police. There were no researches in my country that tried to answer this question. The problem is however, sexual violence is considered a private matter and little attention is given to preventing it by authorities due to which I could not get an assistance from the local government to peruse the study. I am trying to access some sort of solution to this challenge if some one happens to read this and had similar problem before and know how to solve it. I can attach my research protocol if requested even for review by members.

I have recently laid the groundwork for research on male victims of domestic violence. I recently was involved with a male victim of domestic violence. He had been videoing the abuse and when he called the local police department. He was disregarded and was told deal with it, as the officers didn’t see a big issue. Not only did the victim have marks, but had the officer’s remarks on tape. The officers stated that if he had a problem and continued to push the issue he would be charged with disorderly conduct.
I personally spoke with the commander and he stated he did not see an issue and gave a phone number for the victims advocate group for the state. Not only that the person we spoke with, had no idea where he may go for help. As this really doesn’t happen and when it does, they (male) does not have a shelter like the women do.
I would like to stir my research on male victims of domestic violence and if there is a correlation with the murder suicide cases. As the male victims just don't have the resources as the female victims.
My research is in need of cases that may be helpful in my research. Did things get missed by law enforcement, mental health providers and states as male victims are not believed, because female perpetrators can drop a tear and prejudicial judgment may come into play and the male is seen as the person who inflicted the violence.
What do we as professionals do to reach out to the male victim. Are we in need of better understanding to relay to law enforcement, mental health providers, and give them the same resources as any victim of domestic violence?
Any cases that I may use or input would be of great help, as little research and cases are out there.
This is regarding my future study
My friend and I started the wiki because we want to understand what is known in various fields, including the social science, behavioral science, law, public policy, etc., about violence prevention. My co-organizer and I are currently recruiting professionals to participate. She is in the behavioral health field and I have MA in Urban Affairs and Public Policy. Please let me know if you think there is a need for such a network and if you would like to participate. Referrals to similar sites are welcome.
